THESE US-MADE MASKS ARE FDA AND NIOSH APPROVED FOR SURGICAL AND HEALTHCARE USE.
Advanced Concept Innovations' Model 3120 Surgical N95 Respirators are approved by both the FDA (view listing) and NIOSH (approval number TC-84A-9318) for use in surgical and healthcare settings. They are manufactured in the USA in Lakeland, Florida (with global materials, of course). They are ideal for use in medical clinics, operating rooms, surgical applications, laboratory procedures, infection control protocols, emergency planning/preparedness as well as in standard N95 non-medical uses or by regular everyday folks.
These surgical-grade masks feature ASTM F1862 Level 3 fluid resistance, the highest level of protection (160 mm Hg), while the high surface area provides exceptional breathability, and meet all regulatory requirements for biocompatibility, flammability, and fluid resistance. They do NOT contain latex. These one-size-fits-most masks fold flat so you can easily stash them in your pocket or purse when you are on the go.
The 3120's flexible contour nosepiece is malleable and much easier to conform to a variety of face sizes/types with less pinching than the more rigid metal strips found on some competing brands. Our customers have reported they fit smaller faces well. The "duckbill" pouch design means less mask is in direct contact with one's face than vertical folding masks, providing a cooler breathing chamber. This design, along with ultrasonically welded wide head straps and a non-abrasive comfort layer, mean this respirator is exceptionally comfortable for all-day use.
Each box is stamped with a lot number and 3 year expiration date. A PDF file containing the instructions, cautions/limitations, manufacturer information and NIOSH approval information is available for download.
These masks are available in boxes of 50 masks or case quantities of six boxes (300 masks total). They are not individually wrapped. For volume purchases please contact us by phone or email. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. WE CAN NOT ACCEPT RETURNS ON THIS ITEM.
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. The 3120 is ideal for patient interaction given its surgical rating and low unit cost.
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.
Tax tip! The Internal Revenue Service has stated that the purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks, hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes, for the primary purpose of preventing the spread of coronavirus are deductible medical expenses. They are also eligible for reimbursement under health flexible spending accounts such as FSA's and HSA's.
