N99 Pollution Mask - Top 10 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

N99 Pollution Mask - Top 10 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. What does N99 pollution mask mean?

N99 pollution masks means that a mask with N99 designation can prevent up to 99% of particulate matter (PM2.5) from entering your lungs through the nose and mouth. Often considered one of the strongest masks in the world, an N99 designation is the minimum requirement for surgical masks used in hospitals - just to be safe.

2. How do N99 masks work?

N99 masks work by making it nearly impossible for particulate matter, like bacteria and viruses, to penetrate densely woven cotton or high quality neoprene, and an inner, activated carbon filter layer.

3. Are N99 masks better than N95 masks?

N99 masks are superior to N95 masks because they provide the additional activated carbon filtration layer to the already powerful N95 mask. Both the carbon filter layer and a cotton/neoprene mask will allow the entire accessory to reach N99 designation.

4. What is N99 mask used for?

N99 masks are used to prevent the inhalation of:

  • Burning Fossil Fuels in Vehicles (CO2 Emissions)
  • Smoke (Cigarettes, Vapes)
  • Power Plants (Industrial Pollution)
  • Road Dust/Construction Sites
  • Cooling Towers for Technology
  • Dust Storms
  • Forest & Grassland Fires
  • Pollen & Haze
  • Densely Populated Urban Areas
  • Aerosols (Human made aerosols now composes 10% of global aerosol particulate matter)
  • Pet Dander
  • Bacteria, Viruses


N99 masks are great for activities like:

  • Walking (Daily Errands)
  • Running
  • Hiking
  • Biking
  • Skiing
  • Snowboarding
  • Hunting
  • Fishing
  • Construction
  • Painting
  • Manufacturing/Processing Work

5. Can N99 masks prevent COVID-19 infection?

N99 masks are no guarantee to preventing COVID-19. Nothing is - that is why we all quarantine! But the 99% filtration really does help when you have to leave the house. Recommended by both the CDC and the federal government as a means to help prevent the transmission of the virus, N99 masks are helping us all pitch in when it comes to this war on healthcare, and our daily lives! Do your part, protect yourself and your family - where a mask.

6. What are N99 masks made of?

Many N99 masks are made up of either a N95 cotton or N95 neoprene (the colourful patterned cloth we see) and an N99 activated carbon filter. Both the mask material and the inner activated carbon filter work together to keep out 99% of airborne particulate matter, hence ’N99’.

7. Can N99 masks be reused?

N99 masks can definitely be reused. In fact, the demand for masks and filters is so high right now, that we encourage you to use your masks for as long as you can. This will allow as many people to have a mask as possible. So spread the love! N99 masks usually come in two parts, the N95 cotton or neoprene material, and then the N99 replaceable filter. Both of them can be re-used, but only the N95 cotton or neoprene mask can be thrown in to the wash for a long lasting life span.

8. Are N99 masks washable?

N95 cotton, and neoprene sport masks are very much washable. That is why they are such great masks for outdoor sports and activities. Rest assured that your N95 neoprene mask will last as long as any of your other accessories or gear, as long as you take care of it. N99 activated carbon filters are not washable though! They should be replaced between 60-80 days of extended use. Email us if you are looking for filters - we can help you.

9. Which N99 mask should I buy?

You should buy an N99 mask that fits snugly around your face with a nose clip, and is made from materials proven to stop particulate matter. Then comes the fun part… choosing a colour or pattern that is fit for you! You should choose a mask that has colours and patterns that reflect your personality. We won’t be able to see your face because of your mask, but we still want to know all about you! What is your favourite colour mask?
