MERS, Flu, Ebola and other airborne virus protection
Alpha and low-energy beta radiation filtering
Our N95 Particulate Respirator Face Masks are individually sealed to maintain freshness and integrity
The N95 respirator is the most common of many types of particulate filtering facepiece respirators. This product filters at least 95% of airborne particles but is not resistant to oil. Follow this link to NIOSH (Center for Disease Control) that shows approval of the HY8510 mask by NIOSH as an N95 respirator and also approval by the FDA as a surgical mask.

N95 Particulate Respirators may help in preventing the inhalation of alpha particles and some low-energy beta particles.
An alpha particle is the heaviest and most highly charged of the common nuclear radiations. As a result, alpha particles very quickly give up their energy to any medium through which they pass, rapidly coming to equilibrium with, and disappearing in, the medium. They have a low penetrating power – you can stop them with just a sheet of paper. Since Alpha particles cannot penetrate your skin they are generally not a cause for concern. However, if alpha radiation is inhaled or ingested, they can kill nearby cells. Examples: Polonium-210, Radon-222, Radium-226 and Americium-241.
Low Energy Beta Radiation
Millicurie quantities of low energy beta emitters do not present an external exposure hazard since they cannot penetrate the outer dead layer of skin. However, extreme caution should be taken to avoid internal contamination. These nuclides will have an affinity for certain target organs and can impart a significant local dose to that portion of the body. Examples: Hydrogen-3 (Tritium), Carbon-14, Phosphorus-32, Sulfur-35 and Nickel-63.
