These masks are built up in several layers. This type of mask is the right choice for the general public to protect themselves from infections in public.
These masks reliably protect against airborne particles. To do this, they must be worn close to the face - and not used repeatedly. There are different standards around the world for measuring the performance of protective masks. The European standard FFP2 filters out at least 94 percent of all particles from a size of 0.6 μm in the air. These masks close tightly to the face and thus protect the wearer of the mask from aerosols in the air.
