Respirators FFP2 NR, vertical foldable made of PP
FFP2 NR respirators are made of high quality breathable PP fleece. They meet the FFP2 performance level and thus protect against solid and liquid harmful dusts, smoke and aerosols. The FFP2 masks are versatile and reduce the absorption and transmission of infectious agents. The protective masks are particularly suitable for employees in medicine, laboratory, nursing, hospital as protective equipment, industry, food industry and hygiene-sensitive areas.
The FFP2 protective masks are folded vertically, providing a large breathing surface for easier inhalation and exhalation. At the same time, folded respirators are a cheaper alternative to preformed cups because they are easier to manufacture. Thanks to the moldable nose clip, the disposable masks seal well and fit tightly to the face. The elastic, latex-free headgear does not pinch behind the ears and is very comfortable over a long period of time.

What is PP?
PP is the abbreviation for polypropylene, the standard material for protective clothing and disposable products. Mostly, this synthetic fiber is processed into a soft nonwoven, which is then used to make a textile-like fabric. PP nonwoven is permeable to air, very economical, comfortable and even offers slight protection against liquids because splashes simply roll off.
What you should know about respirators
When it comes to respirators, all guideline values and minimum requirements are defined in EN149:2001 + A1:2009. The filter classes FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3 are also precisely defined there. Read the most important facts about the so-called filtering half masks here.
Respirators (also called fine dust masks) that comply with EN 149 are suitable for use with liquid and solid aerosols and protect the wearer from these health hazards. They are part of the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and are required by law in many industrial work areas.
Respirators are divided into three protection classes: FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3. The protection classes are based on the so-called MAK value: The value corresponds to the concentration at the workplace to which an employee can be exposed without suffering an adverse health effect. FFP1 = small particle quantities; FFP2 = medium particle quantities; FFP3 = large particle quantities. The abbreviation FFP stands for Filtering Face Piece.
In accordance with legal requirements, the protective masks are tested with sodium chloride (solid aerosols) and with kerosene oil (liquid aerosols). Depending on the filter class, respirators protect against many times the MAK limit value (VdGW).
Filter class FFP1
up to 4 times MAK, application: protection against coarse, health-endangering dry particles and aerosols; e.g. wood grinding dust, quartz dust, coarser allergens, pollen, etc.
Filter class FFP2
up to 10 times MAK, application: protection against dry particles and aerosols hazardous to health; e.g. metal dusts, mineral fiber dusts, polishing dusts, construction site dusts, etc.
Filter class FFP3
up to 30 times MAK, application: protection against very fine, health hazardous dry particles and aerosols e.g. chemical industry, bacteria, viruses, simple radioactive dusts etc.
Why respirators with valve?
FFP masks are also available as a variant with an exhalation valve. This makes breathing noticeably easier and more pleasant. A valve improves ventilation in the mask, lowers the temperature and ensures that less moisture forms in the mask. Protective masks with a valve are therefore more comfortable and more kind to the skin. However, they can only be used for self-protection (PPE), because possible germs of the wearer can be released to the outside world via valve. This means that if the focus is on protection against infection, respirators without a valve should be used. FFP masks without a valve offer both external protection and self-protection.
What does the "NR" mean for protective masks?
NR stands for "Not reusable" and states that it is a disposable mask, which is intended for single use.
