FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are N95 masks the same as P2 masks?


Recently there has been some confusion around the differences in P2 dust masks vs N95 dust masks. Both masks are certified, albeit to different standards. This occurs because products tested under American NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) or European (CE) Standards are often exported and sold in Australia.

Due to the global nature of the market and manufacturing companies, respirators are often tested and marketed under different standards, meaning a range of different certifications are acceptable in the Australian market.

N95 masks are very similar to P2 masks, and feature only very slight differences. This is due to the different testing and certification practices between Australia and the US.

Jaybro supplies both N95 disposable respirators and P2 respirators, and below we have laid out the slight differences in the two types. As you can see there are some minor differences in the aerosol flow rates and particle sizes that both these masks protect against.

The differences of filtering efficiency (P2 filter efficiency of 94% vs N95 filter efficiency of 95%) between the classification systems result in virtually no impact on the level of respiratory protection provided to wearers




How long can you use the N95 Mask for?


N95 masks are disposable and only work for a certain period of time, usually around 8 to 10 hours. If you keep wearing the mask after the recommended time, the filter will be less effective or not effective at all.

How to fits a N95 mask correctly


1. Remove glasses and hats. Tie back long hair so it does not become tangled in the straps of the mask 2. Put the mask on your face, ensuring the nose piece is at the top of the mask 3. Place the top strap or tie high on the back of your head 4. Move the bottom strap over your head and position it below your ears 5. Compress the mask against the face to ensure a seal across the bridge of the nose 6. Compress the mask to ensure a seal across the cheeks and the face 7. Gently exhale and check air does not escape around the seal. Adjust if necessary. 8. Gently inhale and check the mask is drawn in towards the face and there are no air leaks around the face seal. Adjust as necessary. 9. If there are air leaks that can’t be rectified by adjusting the mask, check the mask for defects or try another style of P2 / N95 mask.




How long can you wear a N95/P2 for?


N95/ P2 masks are disposable and only work for a certain period of time, usually around 8 to 10 hours. If you keep wearing the mask after the recommended time, the filter will be less effective or not effective at all
