Civil protective masks should be graded and marked before starting

With the frequent attack of haze in recent years, air purifiers and masks have become new favorites in the market. 1n order to seize the market, major manufacturers have launched related products. But what do you think of the face mask as a personal thing? How to grade the protection effect in the case of haze removal? 1t is reported that since November 1, the “technical specification for daily protective masks” (hereinafter referred to as the “specification”) has been officially implemented, which is China’s first national standard for civil protective masks. However, the code clearly states that this standard “does not apply to masks for children”

according to the code, civil protective masks are divided into four levels: A, B, C and D. the corresponding protective effects of each level are not less than 90%, 85%, 75% and 65% respectively. The applicable air quality index categories of each level are serious pollution, serious and below pollution, severe and below pollution, moderate and below pollution According to the code, the level of protective effect will appear in the relevant signs of protective masks

the specification clearly states that this standard is “not applicable to masks for children”. 1n this regard, experts explained that due to the great differences in children’s physical characteristics, the accumulation of medical data and experimental data on the impact of respiratory resistance on children’s growth still needs to be improved, so the “code” does not make special provisions on children’s masks
