Why did this mask fail?
Video TranscriptHey, everyone. Welcome back to the place we are testing every single mask on Amazon.
Today, we're looking at the Rasav kids disposable face mask. Let's put it in the clamper and see what happens. This is using the newly updated Chinese standard. And what's weird is, dude, I have tested these before. I swear I've tested this exact same one before.
It's this new standard. They call it a surgical mask standard, but clearly, it looks like a KN95. Kind of. It's weird. It's new. It's new. But I really like the standard after having read through it because it calls for a super breathability. It was updated in 2020. It was updated in 2020, I can only assume in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Let's let her rip. It needs to be super breathable. I think it's 95% or better. I can't remember exactly what it was. And it calls having no smell, which I thought was interesting, but also great because so many of the best masks in the world, like the 3M Aura mask, smells horrible. And for a kid it's like, how's a kid going to wear that if it smells bad?
Now, let's take a look at this listing. Rasav kid's disposable masks for children. Oh, it's for children. I figured that out when you said it was for kids. Tie-dye masks, they are. Four ply protection. They're claiming a filtration efficiency of 95%. Super soft. It's like a spun on the outside. Pretty strong. I think I can break it. Ow. Not easily though. Shoot a monkey. Let's try it on.
The smell is not horrible. They're meaning the standard. It's like dipped in plastic is what I'm going to call that smell, but it's not horrible. And I'm going to switch on over because we're so close. This is exciting. The standard is 95%. Ooh, we're just underneath it. Ooh. Airflow resistance is beautiful. 90 pascals. Love to see that for kids. Super breathable mask. Yeah. They just missed the standard. 94.766, 94.766. Hey, they just missed that standard of 95%. Remember, we're using the same exact machine that the Chinese standard. It's the 38880 standard. And now I have that in my memory.
Speaking of kids, probably pushed out a memory of my kids walking or something to remember the name of that standard. So there's that. All right, guys. Pretty good mask. It just didn't quite meet the standard. Probably choose a different mask. There was another one we just did that was pretty awesome.
All right. Thank you so much for watching. I appreciate your time and attention. Hey, leave a comment below. Not going to ask you for a like and subscribe, because we don't do that here. But I would love a comment and it's actually not for me. It's for you because we're doing a thing every 24 hours choosing one of our commenters for something really special. I'll put a link up there and I will catch you on the next test. Thank you so much.
