-- Free shipping thru 07/19, including head band style.

The price is raised to $29/10pcs, maybe due to SD effect and/or use of free shipping code

Just read a news release when I was trying to find some product info:

June 16th, 2020

Guangzhou Powecom Labor Insurance Supplies Co., Ltd appoints www.bonafidemasks.com , a division of Ball Chain Mfg. Co., Inc. as the new premier distributor for our FDA Authorized KN95 mask products in the USA.

FDA Appendix A: Authorized Imported, Non-NIOSH Approved Respirators Manufactured in China (Updated: June 17, 2020) [fda.gov]

The unit price isn't cheap: $2.4 each and shipping fee is kind of high: around $14 per order via UPS ground, although you can order more to cut down both unit price and shipping cost per unit.

However, this may be the first time we know we can get a quality KN95 on FDA authorization list from a trustful vendor which is endorsed by manufacturer.

Free shipping thru 7/19

From Bona Fide Mask:

DUE TO AN INCREASE IN COVID-19 CASES WE ARE NOW OFFERING FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING ON ALL KN95 FDA AUTHORIZED MASK ORDERS THRU 7/19/20! ALL ORDERS SHIP FROM OUR WAREHOUSE IN NEW YORK!

Seems pre-order is not included.

Quote from kankou00
:
Headband style now available for pre-order on Bonafide's site. It says shipping 7/16. Slightly higher price vs the ear loop versions.
Quote from elsiesemail
:
If you order just one of the headband style 10 pack, lowest cost shipping is USPS for $5.00. Freeship code does not work. However, if you add the earloop style to your cart as well as the headband style, freeship code does work.
Quote from MaroonMaid297

Hey guys don't want to burst your bubble, however, what you are talking about is not a filtration test, but one that has been propagated by social media. You have sadly been misinformed. The only actual liquid barrier test that is performed on respirator masks is for a small classification known as Surgical N95's, which are considered medical devices by the FDA. Also, liquid barrier protection is rated by ASTM and not NIOSH. Your standard N95 from 3m or Honeywell is not designed for liquid barrier protection and the ability of it to hold water has zero impact on filtration. I emailed Powecom after seeing some of these posts just to be sure and recieved the following back:

IT IS NOT scientific to test qualified KN95 masks by pouring water into them. The dripping test is just a rumor. Firstly, water will destroy the protection ability of the melt blown filtering layer, that means: Water will destroy the effectiveness of the face mask; Secondly, too much water has weight (universal force[Laugh]) , so too much water will drip. Also, : The first layer of nonwoven material can let O2 (= oxygen ) pass through the face mask. That is why, the 1st Layer of face mask cannot 100% block water, especially when there is too much (for example, a cup of Water , too much water !!) pour in the face mask. This is not a scientific test and should not be used. Below are links from actual testing reports from the NPPTL that may be helpful

Guangzhou Powecom Labor Insurance Supplies Co., Ltd.KN95GB262699.2898.962020-211.1pdf icon [cdc.gov]
Guangzhou Powecom Labor Insurance Supplies Co., Ltd.KN95GB262699.5698.182020-303.1pdf icon [cdc.gov]

Just want to make sure you guys have all the information. N95's are not for liquid barrier protection and neither are KN95's. The only liquid barrier protection masks are real ASTM surgical masks and Surgical N95's, which right now should be reserved ONLY for healthcare professionals.

Statement for the Medical Device Respirator recalls in Canada
Guangzhou Powecom Labor Insurance Supplies Co., Ltd hereby declare that the following two importers are not our purchasers.We have not found any information about the relevant companies in the sales records. Our company has an export license. All exports in our company's name are genuine.
There are many fake products on the market. The products that fail to pass the inspection in Canada are not exported by our company. Obviously these are fake.
Our main task in February, March and April is to provide the Chinese government with a large number of high-quality and qualified masks.We've been on the EUA list since April 3 . In fact ,CDC has always tested the quality of all respirators,in order to ensure that all the respirators imported to the United States are safe and up to standard. The following four test reports were issued by NPPTL and can be read on CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/npptl/R...SULTS.HTML

Government of Canada has issued a RECALL on these products.
Health Canada has determined that certain respirators that do not meet performance standards may pose a health and safety risk to users when used in a setting that requires 95% filtration (such as a health care settings).

Useful links regarding mask reuse and cleaning:

USA today has a good simple article about mask cleaning, including N95 (same as KN95):

paypal ok
I can easily find online shops beat your price. But what's the point if you don't know the authenticity. Mask is not like sneakers that fake ones don't hurt you much. Given the fact that only a handful KN95s are permitted by FDA, no surprise there would be a lot of cheap and fake Powecom in the market. The trust is worth a lot in term of health during current pandemic, especially about something we need to have to protect our selves and loved ones.

I just wanted to say thank you--I don't understand the downvotes. I've been looking for some certified k95 masks and they're so hard to find.

I bought some and I appreciate you posting this.

$24 is already cheaper than a couple of the other sources mentioned in another Powecom thread on SD.

What bonafidemask.com has that the other sites don't is that they're actually listed on Powecom's website as their US distributor. This way you know you're not potentially getting counterfeit masks.

not sure what post count has to do with my comment.
i'm not affiliated with Powecom or Bonafidemask. just trying to provide helpful information in purchasing legit masks.
i'm sure you're an adult that can do your own research and make your own decisions, no one will try to convince you otherwise.

I think around $13-$15 which is a rip-off but probably still cheapest overall for this particular mask or buy from NEHydro.

Just find a post count of 2 when you responded to me twice odd. That is all.
