1 Quantitative leakage testing is optional for ASTM F3502-21. Leakage is reported as a ratio of the particle concentration outside the face covering over particle concentration inside the face covering. Higher leakage ratios indicate less leakage.

2 See Making Masks for the Workplace for requirements for Workplace Performance and Workplace Performance Plus masks. Quantitative leakage criteria are required in addition to the ASTM F3502-21 requirements for particulate filtration efficiency and breathability.

For information on having a compliant product listed, please contact ODAdmin@cdc.gov
