FFP2 Mask Meaning and Testing
FFP is an abbreviation for “Filtering Face Piece” with the number “2” indicating the level of protection you will receive from the mask. FFP2 masks filter 94% of particles. uvex guarantees that all of our masks have gone through vigorous testing to ensure their safety and level of respiratory protection. Tested on a wide range of requirements concerning particle-filtering, our masks have been approved in accordance with EN149:2001. Some of the aspects tested for include inhalation and exhalation resistance, filtering efficiency, and leakage.
FFP2 Mask Uses
Whether in a domestic or industrial setting, if you are working in hazardous respiratory conditions, you should wear a protective mask. Applicable in woodworking, construction, agriculture, welding, metalwork, medical, and waste handling our FFP2 masks protect against a variety of particles including fine sawdust and paint particles, cement and other construction dust, metal dust, and fungi.
Making Use of a Dust Mask Rated FFP2 With a Valve
A dust mask or mask labelled as FFP2 that has been fitted with a valve provides ease of breathing and reduces the amount of resistance. This is due to the valve opening as the wearer exhales. This ensures that the moisture from the exhaled breath dissipates quickly and effectively, making the mask more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. The valve does close after exhaling to ensure that the wearer is protected against harmful particles once they inhale.
