Disposable Medical Mask for hospital, pharmacy, clinic, civil service workers.

EN 149 standard

This European standard, the first version of which dates from 2001, establishes the minimum characteristics of respiratory protection equipment. It includes laboratory tests, field tests and certain requirements to ensure the conformity of the masks. The following points are analysed:

  • Packaging
  • Materials: resistance to manipulation
  • Practical performance test
  • Leakage: total leakage inwards and penetration of the filter material

There are some European organizations that issue an examination certificate confirming conformity and specifying the characteristics of the products:

  • INRS then APAVE in France
  • INSPEC in Great Britain
  • FACHAUSSCHUSS in Germany

2009 version

With the publication of the 2009 version of the standard, the designation of the respiratory protection mask is now "particulate filtering half mask". The abbreviation NR or R is added after FFP1, FFP2, FFP3:

NR (not reusable): if the use of the filtering half-face mask is limited to one working day. It is not reusable.

R (reusable): if the filtering half-face mask can be used for more than one working day, so it is reusable.

Additional suffixes include:

Anti-clogging NR masks. When the half mask has passed the dolomite dust test, a letter D can be added to indicate that the service life may exceed 8 h. Example: FFP3 NR D.

Valve. The presence of a valve can be indicated by the letter V.

Particulate type. The letters S or L respectively specify the filtration of solid dust (NaCl-only) or liquid mist (paraffin oil). Example: FFP3 SLV.

Masks manufactured before the new standard was considered may still have the old marking.

Then we have the respirator KN95/FFP2 dust face masks with 95% filtration rating. An FFP (filtering facepiece) mask (also called respiratory protection mask or simply respirator) is a type of protective mask certified by the European Union that serves to protect against particulates such as dust particles and various viruses in the air. The EN 149 standard defines three classes of filter efficiency for these masks, namely FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3. It is an example of a mechanical filter respirator.


Filter penetration limit (at 95 L/min air flow)

Inward leakage

Typical Elastic Band


Filters at least 80% of airborne particles




Filters at least 94% of airborne particles


Blue or White


Filters at least 99% of airborne particles




The mask is a half-face mask, which means that it protects the chin, nose, and mouth. The mask must meet certain standards and effectiveness tests. Efficacy is assessed by the filtration rate (filter penetration, also referred to as efficiency), as well as the degree of leakage around the edges. The mask should be correctly adjusted to the face.

This type of mask, unlike the surgical mouth mask, protects the wearer from inhaling infectious agents or pollutants in the form of aerosols, droplets, or small solid particles.

Which mask is best for Coronavirus? We recommend the 3ply surgical style face masks and N95 (FFP2) (filters 94% of airborne particles) plus the FFP3 (filters 99% of airborne particles)
