The KN95 is an industry standard for respiratory equipment which has the intended effectiveness of filtering >95% of particulates greater than 0.1 to 0.3 microns.
KN95 masks are considered respiratory protective equipment that conform to GB2626-2006 standards. They offer significant protection over household alternatives and are approved by the CDC as acceptable replacements if N95 masks are unavailable*.
These masks are manufactured in FDA certified factories and provide protection against harmful airborne matter based on the KN95 specifications, level 1. These are not meant as a replacement to the N95 masks; rather, an alternative source as indicated in the CDC link below and for civil use.
Press the metallic strip above the nose to fit and create a barrier seal. The outer layer is made of a hydrophobic non-woven layer. The 2 middle layers are made of filtration cloth and can filter greater than or equal to 95% of sub-micron particles. The inner later is soft absorbant and skin-friendly for comfort.
KN95 face mask respirators offer real protection far better than common home-made face mask materials such as cotton t-shirts, pillowcases, scarves etc.

Can respirators approved under standards used in other countries, such as KN95, be used in the US during the COVID-19 pandemic?
"Yes. The FDA is working diligently to mitigate any potential shortages in the supply chain and taking action to assure health care personnel on the front lines have sufficient supplies of respiratory protective devices. The FDA concluded, based on the totality of scientific evidence available, that certain imported respirators that are not NIOSH-approved are appropriate to protect the public health or safety.
