The transparent FFP2 respirator is suitable for medical/healthcare professionals as well as those working in the construction industry, in agriculture, in the chemical industry, in metalworking and processing, in the pharmaceutical industry and in laboratories. It protects workers while going about their jobs and facilitates communication at the same time due to its transparent window, which makes facial expressions easier to recognise and enables lip-reading. In light of this, the MaXsmile Pro FFP2 mask is also suitable for jobs that involve communicating with others, in fields such as speech therapy, psychiatric patient care or the care of the elderly, for example.
We generally recommend FFP2 respirators for use in areas with large crowds of people/where interaction is required, as they are designed to protect the wearer and other people. This is why they are tighter fitting and also have a high particle filtration efficiency. The mask also protects against pollen and dust.
A manufacturer applies the CE marking (Communauté Européenne) to declare that its product complies with the applicable requirements of the European Union and that this fact has been demonstrated via an appropriate evaluation procedure. The CE marking guarantees that the marked products can be traded in the EU (or the EEA) without restriction and ensures consistent health, safety and environmental protection for consumers within this area.
After passing the required inspection, the manufacturer may print the CE mark on its masks and distribute them legally. The CE mark includes the four-digit number of the notified body involved. The requirements of the European standard EN 149:2001+A1:2009 must be met.

What does FFP2 stand for?
FFP stands for Filtering Face Piece. FFP masks protect the wearer against particulate pollutants such as dust, smoke and aerosols. They are available in three protection levels: FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3. These are standardised throughout Europe in accordance with EN 149:2001+A1:2009 (corresponds to DIN EN 149:2009-08). Respirators with higher protection levels filter out particles more effectively.
How is an FFP2 mask measured?
Around 10% of all inhaled aerosols remain in the respiratory tract. FFP2 masks filter out these harmful water and oil-based particles before they can get there. The requirement here is a filtration efficiency of 94% for all airborne pollutants, with a total leakage of no more than 8%.
How are FFP2 masks different to CPA masks?
For a protective mask to be classified as FFP2 in accordance with EN 149, a comprehensive procedure must be carried out in accordance with both Regulation (EU) 2016/425 on personal protective equipment and EN 149. For this reason, a shortened assessment procedure was permitted for “Coronavirus Pandemic Respirators (CPA)”. It is not necessary for these masks to undergo the entire EN 149 testing procedure. The test values that must be achieved are based on EN 149 – specifically, the FFP2 standard – whereby the following points are assessed: usage simulation, visual inspection, putting-on test, breathing resistance and penetration of the filter medium.
Can I protect people around me by wearing an FFP2 mask?
When used correctly, the mask not only protects the wearer but also minimises the risk of infection for people in the vicinity.
Will the FFP2 mask protect me against infection with the coronavirus?
If used correctly, are coronaviruses able to penetrate the mask, or is its only purpose to prevent the further spread of the virus?
FFP2 masks are designed to protect both the wearer and other people. However, the masks must be used correctly – in accordance with the information leaflet.
In every respect, the masks have been designed to guarantee the best possible protection against coronaviruses.
Wofür steht Typ IIR?
Unter den OP-Masken werden drei Maskentypen wie folgt unterschieden:
Typ I Masken bieten keinen ausreichenden Schutz für eine Anwendung im medizinischen Bereich, hierfür werden Typ II oder Typ IIR vorgeschrieben. Für den Schutz vor Viren (welche rund 200x kleiner sind als Bakterien) eignet sich ausschliesslich die Typ IIR-Maske, da diese zusätzlich über einen gewissen Spritzwiderstand verfügt. Einen effektiven Schutz vor Aerosolen bieten allerdings ausschliesslich Masken der (gängigen) Klassen FFP2, FFP3, N95 und KN95.
What is the filtration efficiency of a FFP2 mask?
FFP2 masks filter out at least 94% of particles. These masks are classed as personal protective equipment.
Wie lange sind die FFP2-Masken haltbar?
Bis zu 5 Jahre (siehe «Ende der Lagerzeit» auf der Produktverpackung).
Where can I buy the FFP2 mask?
The masks are currently available to purchase in the Flawa online shop: www.flawaconsumer-shop.ch The Flawa FFP2 mask is also available in pharmacies. We are also in the process of establishing additional sales channels. We will keep you up to date on our website: www.flawaconsumer.com
Do FFP masks equipped with a valve offer better protection?
The design of FFP masks may vary, with some products also having an exhalation valve. Masks with a valve only filter the inhaled air, therefore they are only designed to protect the wearer. If you also want to protect people in your vicinity with regard to the coronavirus pandemic, then valveless masks are recommended. FFP masks equipped with valves are designed for work in harsh or toxic environments.
For how long can I wear the FFP2 mask?
The FFP2 mask is intended for use during a single work shift and cannot be reused (subject to the limitations detailed in the information leaflet)
With over 100 years of experience, Flawa Consumer GmbH in Switzerland develops and produces cotton products and innovative fresh soles, primarily for the European market. In April 2020, Flawa responded to the supply shortage of protective masks at that time by setting up its own mask production facility. The expertise gained since then has transformed Flawa’s initial goal of ensuring domestic supply security into a long-term, third mainstay for the company, i.e. the production high-quality respirators; developed and produced in Switzerland.
The first batch of over 100,000 universal masks was sold out within minutes. Over several months, Flawa continuously optimised and expanded its mask production, enabling it to become the first company to produce FFP2 masks in Switzerland. It also manufactures additional mask types in the country, such as the widely used Type IIR face masks.
Flawa currently operates six plants for the production of various types of respirators, with two additional plants at the planning stage. Three of the existing plants produce FFP2 masks. The production capacity of these plants is around 500,000 FFP2 masks per week.
Flawa supplies its FFP2 masks to the Swiss federal government – other customers include retailers and foreign countries. Furthermore, bottlenecks in the procurement of raw materials due to increased demand are not an issue thanks to the company’s long-standing relationships with extremely reliable suppliers – the Flawa masks can be made ready for shipment at short notice. The filtration efficiency of the masks is regularly tested at the company’s in-house QA laboratory before they reach the market.
