Here's a link [cdc.gov] to the official US CDC writeup on reuse of masks. This page includes relaxed rules due to critical mask supply shortages. All major disinfecting procedures are tested and rated. Please read before making health-related decisions based on the hodgepodge of conflicting info in this thread. Note that metal nose pieces and microwaves don't mix.

BE WARNED: many who placed orders back on 4/5 from first deal thread have not received their product. No answers to email, no one picks up the phone. You can enter a callback queue but no one calls back. They made a shipping label, but the product is not being shipped. Merchant blames USPS. If you are outside your delivery window period, you can file a dispute/claim whomever manages your original payment method.

This is a crap deal @ ~$4.60 each with shipping.

**EDIT** SOLD OUT only kid sizes available Bombay Electronics has a 10 pack for $38, so 3.80 each with free shipping (it says free on $50, but it ships free with just one 10 pack, see for yourself.

3M compares the N95 to the asian (chinese KN95) and confirms it compares favorably. < This does not apply to counterfeit KN95 masks that are not even sanitary

https://multimedia.3m.com/mws/med...ses-tb.pdf

CDC recommends [link needed or it's not true] sterilizing N95 masks for coronavirus using the steam bags that are sold to sterilize baby bottles, etc. Target sells the Medela quick clean micro steam bags. The bags can be used 20x and likewise in testing the CDC found that most N95 masks survived 20x sterilizations before their protection was compromised and the mask needed to be thrown out. DO NOT USE DRY HEAT [not true either, see here https://news.stonybrook.edu/sb_medicine/dry-heat-ovens-can-effectively-disinfect-n95-masks/] or CHEMICALS (Lysol, etc) to sterilize N95s, it will compromise their effectiveness or flat out not kill the coronavirus that may be on the outside of them after use.

This price is ludicrous. I understand that this is the current market pricing, but these cost under $.10/unit to make https://static.slickdealscdn.com/ima...lies/frown.gif
How is a statement like this ever helpful? There are people charging way more than $3.40/each, way more. You can either buy these or leave them available for the next person, simple as that.

I wanted to add this here again because I noticed that these don't seal quite as well as my 3m n95's I've had on hand from before this whole pandemic.

https://www.fixthemask.com/

In particular i notice some fogging of my glasses with these kn95's, which means its not sealing quite right around my nose and mouth. Using the hack in the site above should fix that issue up nicely.
I have the same fogging with my 3m n95 masks i bought awhile back to do some sanding on wood.
The chinese kn95 i bought, i also have this issue. So its more or less user error.

I have no qualms about the material quality, as its pretty comparable to my 3m n95's imo. I did some unscientific tests like the trying to blow out the flame on a lighter test, so take that for what its worth. Only qualms I have about them is the seal around the face.

No, these are closer to N95s, I believe KN95 is basically the Chinese equivalent to N95s. They have a piece to adjust the nose bridge just like the N95, but their overall shape is more of a cone shape vs the bowl shape N95s are. I feel like these do not cover as well as N95s do though.

FDA only approved 3 company KN95(of which this is not one of them) and not all KN95. Most are fake and/or have no history of making such masks.

I have some other PM 2.5 KN95 that I got shipped from china. Also found it crazy to find tiny holes you can see through right across the mouth / middle spaced every 2/3 cm and along the sides from top to bottom. I'm pretty sure proper N95 does not have that. But I do think it's better than basic surgical masks or dust masks.

Alternatively, look at reusable 3m half or full face mask. There are still around online along with their legit P95 or P100 filter which are better than actual N95 and they also rated to last 40-60 hrs each pair of filter. Amazon actually had some filters available but limited to 3 boxes (15 sets) for 18ish each box of 10 or 5sets. Was sold out in 5-30mins. You can even buy knockoff masks, as long as filters are legit and you get a proper seal, you are good to go. There are sites that sell proper filters for anywhere from 10-15 a pair. They are rated better or equal to N95. Proper seal, think tear gas level.

Where are these made?
Wait for USA Made products!
You are buying china make you kill your self!
When you woke up, you must have wrapped your brain in USA flag and left it under your pillow. Haven't you noticed ppl are making their own mask out of t-shirts and blankets. KN95 mask, made in China, might not be as good as N95 but it's way better than home made mask. It's good to be patriotic to a degree, but don't be a dead brain. Virus Doesnt care about anyone's nationality and they will definitely not wait for you to get a American made N95 mask.

FYI
I'm in California and these are coming from CARLSTADT, NJ 07072 .
Ordered this back on Saturday night April 4th and received them Fri afternoon April 10th.
So about 5 Business Days
I just ordered today, since I am from NYC. This should arrive faster than you guys living in west coast. Hopefully the quality is ok. Not expecting superb, as long as it's better than the regular surgical masks.

There is a good reason for that. Those mask are made to prevent spread of virus or bacteria, from the person wearing the mask. Which means the mask collects as much virus and bacteria as it can when you exhale and what ever is not fought is blown to the side or behind the person wearing the mask. What you are looking for is a respirator. Those are designed to block virus and germs when you inhale. But the down side is when you exhale your breath is released without filter through exhaust vent.

The fit was something was I concerned about. I along with most people are viewing these as a "upgrade" to standard surgical mask. But if it does not have a tight seal then it's probably just like surgical mask which also does not have a tight seal.

Your thoughts on how it compare to surgical mask?

I have an N95 mask I bought last year from Home Depot but has a valve. These KN95 are like the style of masks that people are sewing together. These do not have that rigid structure that the valved mask or those simple cupped single elastic dust mask(that use to be cheap) have.
The picture is misleading making it look like those cupped shaped valved masks. The masks come in the bag shown but all 5 masks are in that 1 sealed bag.
That said, they are thicker than the blue pleated surgical style masks. And it does have the metal nose strip sewn in between the material so they won't pop off as I've had happen with masks that have the metal strips glued to the outside of the mask.
