    Warning

    Scams: Beware of scams involving medical products. The risk of payment fraud and delivery of non-compliant and/or inferior products is high at this time.

    Export Bans: Some countries enforce export bans on certain products. Export bans enforced after you have placed an order can result in a total loss – or severe delay.

    Before you order

    Here are our recommendations for importers planning to order medical products.

    Prices

    It’s currently a seller’s market for many medical products, with more demand than supply. Expect higher unit prices for more products.

    MOQ

    The Minimum Order Quantities (MOQ) requirements are also higher than normal. Some suppliers don’t accept orders valued less than USD 100,000.

    Payment Terms

    Some suppliers may insist on a 100% pre-payment, before starting production. We still advise that you only pay a 30% deposit and 70% balance after quality inspection and lab testing.

    Product Compliance

    Medical devices and equipment are regulated in the United States and the European Union. Such regulations are there for a reason – to ensure that the product is not worthless (which is a risk) – and will not go away due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. You must request and verify test reports and other compliance documents (e.g. DoC) before placing an order.

    Face Mask Buyer’s Guide

    Face masks can often be classified as personal protective equipment (PPE) when designed to protect the wearer and are often called respirators. Masks used to protect the patient, on the other hand, are often classified as medical masks. Notice that this definition may differ depending on the country.

    Further, the EU, the United States, and China also have classifications for certain types of masks, depending on their filtration capability.

    FFP1 Face Masks (EU)

    The EN Standard 149, which is harmonized under the Personal Protective Equipment Directive (EU), established requirements and standards for respiratory protective devices and classified them based on the filtering efficiency of the masks, i.e. FFP1, FFP2, FFP3.

    The letters “FFP” stand for “Filtering Face Piece” and the number indicates the level of protection. It can also be shortened as P1, P2, P3. The higher the number is, the more protective a mask can be to the users in terms of its filtration efficiency.

    In particular, FFP1 has the least filtering ability among these three types of respirators. FFP1 filters low levels of dust, solid and liquid aerosols. This kind of mask is suitable to be used during home renovations and daily chores such as cleaning, drilling and cutting and effective against particles like brick dust, cement, coal dust, gypsum, limestone, pollen, sugar, and other larger particles.

    The filtration efficiency of particles of FFP1 shall be at least 80% and the inward leakage inside the mask shall be at a maximum of 22%.

    FFP2 Face Masks (EU)

    FFP2 masks are among the medium of these three types of masks in terms of filtration ability. FFP2 masks shall have a minimum of 94% filtration percentage and a maximum of 8% leakage to the inside.

    These masks are suitable to be used for the purpose of construction, agriculture, and healthcare. They are effective against particles like cotton dust, granite dust, hay, lead dust, and fume.

    Note that, other than being used as personal protective equipment, some surgical masks are also classified as FFP2 masks.

    Also, note that some models of respirators include one or more valves. A valve is able to reduce overheating of the filter element and, in some cases, have been proven to slightly enhance the filtering performance of the respirator.

    However, respirators that feature valves can only protect the wearer, as some of the moisture might filter out via the valve. Therefore, respirators with valves are not suitable as surgical masks.

    FFP3 Face Masks (EU)

    FFP3 masks provide the highest particle filtration ability among the FFP masks. The minimum filtration rate of FFP3 masks shall be 99% and the maximum inward leakage shall be 2%. FFP3 masks are able to block very fine particles such as asbestos. This kind of mask is suitable to be used for medical, pharmaceutical and chemical purposes.

    In conclusion, the filtration efficiency of these three masks are:

    FFP3 (99%) > FFP2 (94% )> FFP1 (80%).

    The inward leakage of them are:

    FFP1 (22% maximum) > FFP2 (8% maximum) > FFP3 (2% maximum).

    Note that, when it comes to manufacturing, in general, the higher the level of protection, the more complex the manufacturing process becomes and the longer the lead time could be, unless the supplier has off-the shelves products.

    N95 Face Masks (USA)

    The American National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has established a rating system for respirators. The regulations for these kinds of respirators are codified in 42 CFR Part 84, which divided them into three kinds: N-Series, R-Series, and P-Series.

    The degree of filtration efficiency is indicated by the numbers 95, 99 and 100. The bigger the number, the higher the filtration efficacy. Other than Class N masks, Class R and P are oil-resistant and oil-proof, respectively.

    According to the NIOSH Standards for Particle Filter Classifications, N95 has the least filtering ability among these three types of respirators. The filtration efficiency of N95 is slightly higher than FFP2 masks, with a minimum of 95% filtration rate of particles larger than 0.3 microns in diameter.

    N95 masks are effective in the prevention of inhaling particles like coal, iron ore, flour, metal, wood and pollen, and other non-oil based liquids.

    Among these three kinds, the N95 mask is the most common and popular one and is suggested by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for being effective against flu, swine flu, and avian flu transmission.

    N99 Face Masks (USA)

    N99 masks have the medium filtration ability among the N-series masks. Compared to the N95 masks, N99 masks are able to trap more particles. N99 can filter up to 99% of the particles that are larger than 0.3 microns in diameter, such as asbestos, bacteria, copier toner, and lead.

    However, this means that the materials used to manufacture N99 masks are denser than that of N95 masks, which makes the N99 more expensive and harder for the users to breathe when wearing it.

    Therefore, N99 users need to be cautious if they bear cardiac or respiratory issues such as emphysema, asthmas, cardiopulmonary problems, and others.

    N100 Face Masks (USA)

    N100 masks rank the highest in terms of particle filtration efficacy among the N-series masks. N100 can filter up to 99.97% of the particles that are larger than 0.3 microns in diameter.

    N100 masks are suitable to be worn when grinding, sanding, mineral processing and other activities on construction sites and the factories. N100 masks are able to block off substances like lead, cadmium, arsenic and methylenedianiline and a majority of airborne hazards like viruses and bacterias.

    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) proved the efficiency of N100 masks for fighting against avian flu, swine flu and other contagious diseases and found them to provide superior protection.

    In conclusion, the filtration efficiency of these three masks are:

    N100 (99.97%) > N99 (99% ) > N95 (95%).

    KN90 Face Masks (China)

    GB2626 is a regulation established by the State Administration of Quality Supervision of China, which specifies the requirements for material, structure, appearance, performance, filtration efficiency and labeling for respirators.

    Similar to NIOSH standards for respirators, there are two systems and 3 classifications differentiating the filtration efficiency of the masks and they are KN-series and KP-series.

    In this case, the filtration efficacy is indicated by number 90, 95 and 100. KN-series masks are able to prevent non-oil particles and KP-series are for preventing both non-oil and oil particles.

    KN-series masks are proven to be effective in blocking particles of which the diameter is less than 5 microns. The filtration rate of KN90 shall be of at least 90%

    KN95 Face Masks (China)

    KN95 masks or respirators shall have a filtration ability for at least 95%, and, similar to the American class N95, are among the most popular when the user is concerned with protecting himself against bacteria, viruses, or pollution.

    KN100 Face Masks (China)

    KN100 masks or respirators shall have a filtration ability for at least 99.97%. Similar to N99 and N100 respirators, these masks are proven to offer a higher level of protection but come with the downside that breathing through these high-performance filters is more difficult.

    In conclusion, the filtration efficiency of these three masks are:

    N100 (99.97%) > N95 (95% ) > N90 (90%).

    Surgical Masks (3-Ply/4-Ply/5-Ply)

    Surgical masks are mainly designed to protect patients against bacteria and viruses that might be transmitted via droplets and fluids during surgery, medical checks and more.

    The most common surgical masks are the so-called 3-ply, 4-ply, and 5-ply. Generally speaking, a 3-ply mask features three layers:

    • The outer layer is designed to repel fluids, such as saliva or blood
    • The middle layer shall filter bacteria
    • The inner layer shall absorb fluids

    4-ply and 5-ply masks also contain an activated carbon filter and/or an additional filtering layer. Thus, they offer extra protection.

    United States

    In the US, surgical masks are classified as Class II medical devices by the FDA and are regulated under 21 CFR Section 878.4040. There exist several ASTM standards that define fluid resistance and filtration efficacy, and that can be used to comply with the FDA requirements.

    For instance, ASTM F2100 provides tests to evaluate the BFE (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency), and ASTM F1215 provides tests to evaluate the PFE (Particle Filtration Efficiency), according to three levels of performance.

    The higher the level is, the more effective the masks in filtering bacterias and sub-micron particles that move at a certain velocity: Level 3 (at least 98%) > Level 2 (at least 98%) > Level 1 (at least 95%).

    European Union

    In the EU, surgical masks fall under the scope of the Medical Devices Directive. The harmonized standard EN 14683 adopts standards that are similar to ASTM standards. In this case, performances are evaluated according to Type I, Type II, and Type IIR.

    As for ASTM, the higher the number, the more effective the masks in filtering bacterias and sub-micron particles: Type IIR (at least 98%) > Type II (at least 98%) > Type I (at least 95%).

    China

    China also provides a similar standard, called YY0469, which shall filter at least 95% of particles.
