The XDX KN95 Face Mask for Kids 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.

Why did this mask fail?
Video TranscriptHey, what's up everyone? Welcome back to the place we're testing every single mask on Amazon, including that's right, kids masks for kids with cool hair. Woo. What is this? Oh, camo masks. All right, let's do this. Yeah, I'm into it.
What are these, KN95s? KN95 productive mask by XDX 9000. I feel like it needs 9000 after that. Ooh, I like the packaging. It's pretty cool. It's not a real KN95, but whatever, it's not like you need to tell the truth in these product listings. Oh, what you say? That's a Federal Trade Commission issue. They could be fined $75,000 for every lie they told. That's crazy. Who knew?
Better clamp. Not the best clamp I've done though. This is a PFE machine, particulate filtration efficiency machine. I'm doing the N95 test on these KN95 masks. Why the air quotes, Lloyd? I shall tell you, this is not a KN95. Number one, there's not really a pediatric standard for KN95. KN95 needs to have three, it things needs to say KN95. It says it there. You can't see it because it's camouflage. Get it, it's hidden. But it's there, I can feel it at least. You also need the manufacturer's name and you need the standard that it's held to GB2626-2019. So it needs to have that on there. Why? So that if you don't like the masks, you can see it before you put it on. You know if you can trust it or not. That's the whole point. This is a fake KN95.
Now is that going to play out in the actual thing? We'll see here. We're doing the N95 test. Oh yeah, that looks good. You can bear it. Where did Lloyd go? We can't see him. No? Okay. It actually fits me pretty well. Yeah, construction is not okay. I like the individual packaging. Do the smell test. Oh, this smells like a slightly used pizza box, like a cheesy cardboard-y smell. Not necessarily bad but does that matter if it doesn't protect you?
What does the machine say? Our local God here, the Oracle PFE machine. Oh, 69.569. Failure. Yeah, that's a fail. I like the designs of the mask. Super soft. Construction? Eh. Packaging, pretty good. Not following the standard, not good, and failing miserably on the PFE score. So I would not recommend these for my kids but that's me. Thank you guys so much for watching. If you decide not to buy these masks or to buy these masks, because you're [inaudible 00:02:59] in the head, give me a like or subscribe. And either way, even if you don't, you know what? I'm going to do another test anyway, and I will see you at that test, kind sir or madam.
