What do FFP2 masks look like?

How do I use FFP2 masks?
These hygiene face masks are easy to use and can be worn by anyone, men, women and children. To fit, simply hold the mask and place it over your nose and mouth. Bring both elasticated headbands over your head and adjust the position until it’s comfortable.
The masks are comfortable to wear as they are lightweight and non-bulky.
Are the masks re-usable?
These masks are not marketed as re-usable masks because respirator dust masks are usually intended for use in a construction environment.
However, the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) directive indicates that a respirator can be reused as long as it “maintains its structural and functional integrity and the filter material is not physically damaged or soiled”.
What is the difference between FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3
First up is FFP1, which protects against materials in concentrations up to 4x OEL or 4x APF (assigned protection factor).
FFP2 masks offer more protection than FFP1, at concentrations up to 12x OEL or 10x APF. They are the European equivalent of the N95 respirator masks used in the US and this kind meet the guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO).
FFP3 masks protect against materials in concentrations up to 50x OEL or 20x APF. This is substantially higher than FFP1 and they can block both liquid and solid aerosols.
FFP2 are the most common and affordable masks and can be purchased above from Protek Health.
