Is the FFP2 Mask Disposable?

1. The common FFP2 masks are indeed disposable

FFP2 mask is one of the European mask of standard EN149:2001. Its function is to absorb harmful aerosols, including dust, smoke, mist, poisonous gas and poisonous vapor, through the filter material, blocking it from being inhaled by people. The minimum filtering effect of FFP2>94%.

We generally see FFP2 mask materials, which are disposable. There are also half face mask and full face mask with FFP2 cloth, both of which can be used multiple times by replacing the filter element.

2. How to deal with disposable and reusable FFP2 masks after removal?

The outer layer of FFP2 masks tends to accumulate a lot of dust, bacteria and other dirt in the outside air, while the inner layer blocks the exhaled bacteria and saliva. Therefore, the two sides cannot be used alternately, otherwise the dirt on the outer layer will be directly exposed. It becomes a source of infection by inhaling the body when close to the face. When you are not wearing the mask, you should fold it into a clean envelope and fold the side close to your nose and mouth. Don't just stuff it in your pocket or hang it around your neck.

FFP2 masks are similar to N95 and KN95 masks and cannot be cleaned. Because when it gets wet, the mask will release static electricity and cannot absorb dust with a diameter of less than 5um.

High-temperature steam disinfection is similar to cleaning. Water vapor will also cause static discharge, which will cause the mask to fail.

If you have an ultraviolet lamp at home, you can consider using it to sterilize the surface of the mask to prevent accidental contact with the surface of the mask and cause pollution. High temperature can also be sterilized, but masks are usually made of flammable material. High temperature may also cause masks to burn, causing safety hazards. It is not recommended to use ovens and other facilities for high temperature disinfection.

Finally, we must remember that any mask is not a panacea. There is no need to go out and gather, washing hands frequently and ventilation are the best protection for yourself and your family.
