BAL Supply Model 0914 advanced particulate filtering N99 dust masks are NIOSH-approved (approval number 84A-3890) and are designed to protect the wearer against non-oil-based particles as small as 0.3 microns, while still allowing the user full, deep breaths of clean, fresh air. Each has a flexible, adjustable metal nose piece that can be bent or shaped to ideally fit the user's face. The flexible head strap allows the user to don and remove the mask with ease. These are readily compatible with other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses, goggles, earmuffs, and hardhats and the straps are latex-free. One size fits most.
These masks are ideal for protection against small particulates such as saw dust, metal shavings, pollen, allergens, fiberglass, and more. They are ideal for activities such as woodworking or painting at home as well as by professional carpenters, contractors, or lawn care specialists. N99 filtering respirators are even more efficient than N95 respirators, filtering at least 99% of airborne particles. These are not resistant to oil. NIOSH has a convenient discussion of particulate filtering respirator classifications on their web site.
Technical Note 1: Respirators with KN designations such as KN95 are not NIOSH-approved and the market for KN95's is fraught with substandard and counterfeit products and should be considered only when approved alternatives are unavailable. A study by ECRI determined that up up to 70% of imported non-NIOSH certified respirators exhibit filtration performance "significantly inferior" to NIOSH-certified N95's.
Technical Note 2: The US FDA no longer authorizes the use of non-NIOSH approved disposable respirators, and now recommends that healthcare providers revert to standard best practices of wearing a a disposable respirator for each patient contact.
Technical Note 3: When molding the nosepiece on any respirator, use both hands to mold that to your nose. If you use just the thumb and forefinger of one hand you are likely to create a little valley that is hard to seal perfectly.
Technical Note 4: These masks are manufactured by Taiwan-based Jinfuyu Industrial Co, Ltd which holds the NIOSH approval and has factories in both China and Vietnam. These masks have a three year shelf life from the date of manufacture and come with a dates of manufacture/expiration on them. Current stock expires late 2023.

They are also eligible for reimbursement under health flexible spending accounts such as FSA's and HSA's.
