I am looking at buying a new batch of masks, since I still prefer to use a mask for my travelling. I am close to running out again, and the company that I previously got masks from now has a 'new' mask with a different standard. However, I can't find what the difference would be between the different mentioned standards. The only thing I can find is sites that sell very expensive spec sheets, which is a bit beyond the point for me. I understand that they are both European standards, but I can't find sources on what the difference would be.
I am posing the question a bit more broad, since I think it might be a valuable source to have more different standards mentioned together. But the two standards in question are:
'Old' masks: EN149:2001+A1:2009 'New' masks: CE 1463, EN149+A1:2010
My simple consumerism brain goes "oeh bigger number better", but that's not how it always works. I am aware of the difference between FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3. But both of these masks are labeled FFP2. For the sake of argument, let's assume the masks are 'real'.
What is the difference between the standards used for masks?
And more specifically put, what is the difference between the masks I'm looking at?
