N95 and KN95 masks have many of the same protective properties. Both masks capture 95% of aerosol particles that are airborne, and both are made from multiple layers of synthetic material. The main difference lies in how the masks are certified: KN95 masks are certified in China while N95 masks are certified in the United States. One minor difference between the two masks is that the Chinese government requires all KN95 mask manufacturers run a special mask fit test on humans to certify that leakage is less than or equal to 8%, whereas N95 masks manufacturers do not require fit tests. However, N95 masks do have slightly stricter requirements for pressure drops in terms of inhaling and exhaling, which allows for more breathability.
