N95 and P2 Masks
What's the difference?
The difference between the N95 and the P2 classification for Respirator face masks is that N95 is the NIOSH (USA testing requirements.) and the P2 represents the AU/NZ 1716:2012 Standard. In practice these differences have resulted in little impact on the level of protection to the wearer. See Performance Criteria Listed below:
|Certification/Class (Standard)||N95 (NIOSH-42CFR84)||P2 (AS/NZ 1716:2012)||KN95 (GB2626-2006)|
|Filter Performance - (must be ≥ X% efficient)||≥ 95%||≥ 94%||≥ 95%|
|Flow rate||85 L/min||95 L/min||85 L/min|
| Total inward leakage (TIL)* - tested |
on human subjects each performing exercises
|N/A||≤ 8% leakage (arithmetic mean)||≤ 8% leakage (arithmetic mean)|
|Inhalation resistance - max pressure drop||≤ 343 Pa|| ≤ 70 Pa (at 30 L/min) |
≤ 240 Pa (at 95 L/min)
|≤ 350 Pa|
|Flow rate||85 L/min||Varied - see above||85/L min|
|Exhalation resistance - max pressure drop||≤ 245 Pa||≤ 120 Pa||≤ 250 Pa|
|Flow rate||85 L/min||85 L/min||85 L/min|
|Exhalation valve leakage requirement||Leak rate ≤ 30 mL/min||Leak rate ≤ 30 mL/min||Depressirization to 0 Pa ≥ 20 sec|
|Force applied||-245 Pa||-250 Pa||-1180 Pa|
|CO2 clearance requirement||N/A||≤ 1%||≤ 1%|
