I have one FFP1 mask and it has a valve. A number of years ago, I picked up a couple of boxes of N95 masks. The FFP1 mask is CE marked and the N95 masks are US made and not CE marked. This particular N95 mask doesn't have the exhale valve and is what we wear if/when we go out and about.
The interesting thing that I learned about the N95 masks is that apparently they all incorporate an electrostatically charged layer which permits particulate capture without impacting respiration.

We reuse the masks but isolate them for several weeks between uses.

I put my used masks in a net bag and tumble dry them on a hot setting, the net bag stops the rubber straps from being damaged, they are certainly toasty when the come out!

This week I rebuild the wire feed tensioner on the Socome mig welder, and fit the Eurotorch conversion kit I got from Techarc. Unfortunately the bearings which I need for it did not come till late Friday, so I will be fitting them and testing the welder next week. It worked out very well! please subscribe, like, comment and enjoy!
Phil. Very hot in East Yorkshire!
