Disposable Premium Earloop Protective Medical Masks are designed for medical, dental and personal health, 3-ply FFP2, FDA, CE and Health Canada approved in a pack of 500.

Our health care professionals have searched and found some high quality masks to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus and other viruses. These masks have FDA, CE and health Canada approval.

These masks are rated as FFP2 (Filtering Face Piece # 2) which is a European standard. 

There are 3 types of ratings used with the European standard - FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3.  Below is a chart on the differences and comparisons of the different standards in North America and Europe and their filtering capacity.

Respirator StandardFilter Capacity (removes x% of of all particles that are 0.3 microns in diameter or larger)
FFP1 & P1At least 80%
FFP2 & P2At least 94%
N95At least 95%
N99 & FFP3At least 99%
P3At least 99.95%
N100At least 99.97%

As you can see, the closest European equivalent to N95 are FFP2 / P2 rated respirators.


How Do These Medical Masks Work?

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) medical masks limit the spread of infectious particles such as COVID-19 expelled by the user.  They are used to help protect the area around the user from contamination by particles expelled by the user, such as those generated by coughs or sneezes.  Medical masks also help provide a physical barrier to protect the user from splashes, sprays, droplets in the air, or contact with contaminated hands.

CDC and Health Canada Recommends Wearing Face Masks!

The CDC and Health Canada has now recommended people should be wearing face masks in public. We now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity—for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing—even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. In light of this new evidence, it is recommended the individuals wear face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

How to wear

step 1 of putting on a mask
Put your fingers through the elastics.  Nose bar should be found above.  Place the mask on your nose and mouth.
step 2 of putting on a mask
Put the elastics on your ears.  Pill the mask by its upper and lower edges to fully unfold it.  That will ensure maximum face protection and minimize the number of layers you need to breathe through.
step 3 of putting on a mask
Put on and form a stiffener above the bridge of the nose to minimize air leakage.
step 4 of putting on a mask
Take off the mask by grasping the elastics and pulling them off your ears.  Do not touch the mask while removing-it may contain germs.  Dispose mask after use.  Wash your hands carefully for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
