Types and characteristics of FFP3 masks
FFP3 masks refer to masks that meet the European (CEEN149:2001) standard. The European standards for protective masks are divided into three levels: FFP1, FFP2, and FFP3. The difference from the American standard is that its detection flow rate adopts 95L/min, and DOP oil is used to generate dust.

Different FFP3 types of masks use different filter materials. On the one hand, the filtering effect is related to the particle size of the particles, and it is also affected by whether the particles contain oil. FFP3 masks are usually classified according to filtration efficiency and whether they are suitable for filtering oily particles. Oil-free particles such as dust, water-based mist, paint mist, oil-free fumes (welding fumes), microorganisms, etc. Although the filter materials of "non-oily particulate matter" are more common, they are not suitable for oily particulate matter, such as oil mist, oil fume, pitch fume, coke oven fume, etc. The filter material suitable for oily particles can also be used for non-oily particles.

The choice of FFP3 type masks, first: the dust-proof efficiency of the mask should be high. The dust suppression efficiency of a mask is based on its dust suppression efficiency for fine dust, especially for respirable dust below 5 μm. General gauze masks, the principle of dust blocking is mechanical filtration, that is, when dust hits the gauze, it passes through a layer of barriers, blocking some large particles of dust in the gauze. However, fine dust, especially dust less than 5 μm, will pass through the mesh of the gauze and enter the respiratory system. There are some anti-particulate masks on the market. The filter material is composed of fibers charged with permanent static electricity. Those respirable dust less than 5 μm will be attracted by static electricity and adsorbed on the filter material during the process of passing through this filter material. It really plays a role of dust blocking.

Second: The degree of closeness between the mask and the face shape is better. When the mask is not close to the human face, dust in the air will enter the respiratory tract from the gaps around the mask. Therefore, people should choose an anti-particle mask that suits their face shape and wear an anti-particle mask correctly. Third: Wear comfortably, including low breathing resistance, light weight, hygienic wear, and convenient maintenance, such as wearing an arched anti-particle mask.
