The OfficeDepot BYD Care N95 duckbill-style respirator mask passed our particulate filtration efficiency machine test with a score of 99.10%. A defining characteristic of N95 masks is they have either head straps or head ties (no ear loops).
Mask breathability is determined by airflow resistance, which we measure in pascals. The target for adults should be around 150, and the target for children should be close to 100. The airflow resistance of this mask is 181.12.
This mask failed an initial test with a filtration score of 83.51%, but received the score above during the second test. Given the BYD brand has had consistency issues in the past, this is a little disconcerting. We didn't care for the stapled-on head straps either.Someone sent us this mask for testing. Its country of origin is China. Check out our video review for more details.
