KN95 Masks are extremely effective to prevent the spread of virus infections, they filter at least 95% of all air borne articles which are 0.3 Microns or larger & provide for a tighter fit across the face than 3 PLY or Cloth masks. When fitted & worn correctly minimal leakage occurs around the edges.
Suitable for use in manufacturing, service, security, beauty, food handling & most commercial industries.

It does an excellent job of comparing each countries certification requirements side by side.

"We were able to get some N95 masks from Via Trading to provide to family members, as well as donate some to first responders, health care workers & other people working at essential businesses. We received them in 1 day from our order date and they have worked out very well. Good quality and nice individual wrapping. I've seen some pleople complain about the price, which is nonsense, since they are completely unavailable everywhere and the suppliers are all charging a premium because they are paying a premium to get them. Thanks for the Via Trading crew for helping us out!"
"Bought masks to give to my friends family and the local first responders in out area, Via had them, unlike everyone else they were fairly priced and delivered in 2 days. Thank you so much, service and timing was impecable. Anybody need any masks I'd avise them to use Via."
"As a newer customer to via trading i was planning on waiting to post reviews to make sure they are as amazing as the first impression led me to believe...but my most recent order compelled me to speak up now! When COVID 19 struck and noone could find the ever important N95 face masks, one source did not fail to deliver! While they are pricey comparatively speaking, they are a miniscule price to pay for your loved ones, and much much less than other places! My only complain is that I could only order 200 at a time! ...And oh yeah did i mention that every case sold directly helps the medical and high risk community because Via is donating a portion of all sales in the form of masks! Any company can look good during good times...it takes a hell of a company to shine this bright during turmoil! Thank you Via!"
