Verify KN95 descriptive materials
Mask packaging must publish the intended use of its product and any additional instructions. For KN95-mask makers, it is essential to provide proper descriptive material. Package inserts are often included in instructions for KN95 mask use. It is illegal to claim, state, or suggest that a respirator is safe for COVID-19 protection in printed materials. Any label or insert that contains COVID-19 may be a warning sign.
Packaging for Tamper Evident KN95 Mask packaging
After you open the zip lock, the mask has seal on top. This seal is impervious to tampering. it indicates that the package has been sealed correctly since its manufacturing. Even after opening the package, the seal should remain intact. Although mask packaging is possible it does not indicate quality.
Verify Mask Markings
It is possible for disposable respirators that are not approved by NIOSH to receive FDA approval, such as the KN95 mask. These masks don’t have the FDA logo. These masks should have the CE symbol on them as they conform to European standards.

KN95 Face mask Quality at Home
To determine your fit and quality, there are two main tests that you can do at home. These are The Water Test (lighter), and The Lighter Test(medium).
KN95 Lighter Test
Place the mask on, and hold it six inches from your mouth. The flame will be set off by blowing on the mask. You should not blow out a certified mask. Bad quality masks may cause flames to not lighten.
The KN95 Mask Water Test
Your mask will stay in place with the elastic bands. Add water to the cup. You should eliminate water leakage.
