The TRI-TITANS Kids Face Mask failed because the KN95 standard requires that the mask have the manufacturer’s name and the appropriate technical standard, typically either "GB 2626-2019" or GB-2626-2006,” written across the front of the mask. This is similar to how official N95 masks display NIOSH approval numbers. This mask did not have the required identification on its front. It also did not pass our breathability standard of 250 pascals or less.

Why did this mask fail?
Video TranscriptHey everyone, welcome back to the place where we are testing every single mask on Amazon, including the TRI-TITANS Mind, Body, Spirit. Let's get it in the clamper and see what happens. All right, little packaging here, five pack of masks. It's one of these things that, oh, okay, see so, it's not actually sealed, which I don't love. Kids masks, greater than or equal to 95% efficiency. This is interesting, it's like the third time I've seen this style, I don't love this style. So like it's put together very long, but I've been known to be wrong before, and let's let her rip. This is a PFE machine, Particle Filtration Efficiency machine. If you want to find out more about how this works, check out that link, but we are doing the K or the N95 tests here, which is an American standard. And they are claiming, are they claiming, are they claiming? They're not claiming anything.
Five layer, disposable, non-usable mask, adjustable ear loops, small size. Here we go with the 3D mask again. They're not claiming anything, they're not saying it's a KN95, kids mask 95. Okay, GB2626-2006. They are claiming, that is a claim for the KN95 standard, and that's probably for exporting. That's probably, they have to put that on there before it leaves the country, and it's not meeting the standard because the KN95 standard, you need to have the manufacturer name, you need to say KN95. And you need to say GB2626-2006, which is on there as weird as the old standard, because the new standard is 2019. So this is a very old standard. So, that's a record, that's a record.
Holy crap, I didn't even touch the mask and the ear loop fell off. Oh wow, wow. Oh my goodness, this is incredible. Oh wow. This, if it stays on your face, I mean, who knows what the, holy cow, and I'm just seeing all sorts of things here. So given this away, amazing, but look at that 342, now that's out of spec. The KN95 standard says this has to be under 250 pascals. This thing is like breathing through a brick, your kid's not going to be able to breathe through that. Filtration efficiency is really good though, but what does it matter if it doesn't fall? I'm going to see if I can get one of these on my face to do a smell test without it breaking off. I do like the adjustable ear loops though, that's nice.
Okay, that's interesting now because that one just fell right off without touching. It may have been a fluke. Oh, I'm going to call this smell mosquito repellent, what it smells a like. Okay, so that's interesting, that one was really horrible. Oh yeah, okay, okay. Oh, okay, it's not a fluke, it's just a terrible mask. Terrible mask, not breathable, falls off your face, not meeting the KF95 standard that it claims on the bag, but doesn't really advertise. There are better masks out there people, I would just choose one of them for my kids, like a KF94 mask. Those things are generally pretty good, the small ones for kids. All right, thank you guys so much. I appreciate your time and attention, and I will catch you on the next test.
