POWECOM® KN95


Bona Fide Masks®, as of November 14th 2021, is designated by Guangzhou Powecom Labor Insurance Supplies Co., Ltd., the manufacturer of our KN95 respirator mask, as the EXCLUSIVE distributor of Powecom KN95 products in the United States and Canada.  All of our Powecom ® KN95 respirators manufactured after May 20th come affixed with anti-fake stickers that allow the end user to verify authenticity.

You may have heard that the FDA recently revoked Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for KN95 masks, which are manufactured to Chinese standards. While KN95s are no longer authorized for healthcare workers given the abundant supply of N95 respirators, they are still appropriate for consumer use, and the Powecom KN95 efficacy (BFE) has tested similar to NIOSH approved N95s. The Powecom KN95 is of the highest quality.

N95 NIOSH APPROVED


The N95 face mask respirator is the NIOSH standard for respirator protection in the United States. Like all of our products they are sold at low wholesale prices. This means the more you buy, the less expensive they are! The N95 is a type of personal protective equipment that are used to protect the wearer from airborne particles. The N95 face mask is regulated by NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) and the Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA).
