Comparing the effectiveness of Honeywell n95 masks and 3M n95 masks

Honeywell

Honeywell International Inc. is an American multinational conglomerate with headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, which is publicly traded. It operates mainly in four business areas: aerospace, building technology, performance materials and technologies (PMT) and solutions for safety and efficiency (SPS).

In reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of its manufacturing facilities in Rhode Island, Arizona, Michigan and Germany were converted by Honeywell to manufacture personal protective equipment supplies for healthcare employees. 

Honeywell started manufacturing N95 masks in April 2020 at the company's Smithfield and Phoenix factories, planning to manufacture 20 million masks a month. In Muskegon and Germany, Honeywell's facilities were converted to manufacture hand sanitizers for government agencies.

The things make Honeywell n95 masks effective

The 'N95' indicates that at least 95 percent of tiny 0.3-micron test particles are subjected to careful examination by these respirators or mask blocks. For personal defense against bacterial and viral diseases, N95 masks are used. These are used to protect against liquid contaminating the face and viral airborne particles as a safety shield.

Honeywell has expanded production at several facilities globally to help meet the increasing demand for these masks and other alternatives. N95 mask by Honeywell has the following structure;

N95: The ‘N’ is a Letter Class for Respirator Rank. It stands for "Non-Oil," meaning that you can use the mask in the work environment if no oil-based particles are present. R (resistant to oil for 8 hours) and P (oil proof) are the other mask ratings.

Masks finishing at 95 have an efficiency of 95 percent. Masks ending at 99 have an efficiency of 99 percent. 99.97 percent effective are masks ending in 100 and that is the same as a filter of HEPA efficiency.

.3 microns: Contaminants such as dust, mist, and gases are filtered out by the masks. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the minimum size of .3 microns of particulates and big droplets would not move through the barrier.

Material: The filtering material on the mask is a non-woven polypropylene electrostatic fiber.

Valve: An optional exhalation valve comes with some disposable N95 masks. According to the CDC, "The presence of an exhalation valve decreases exhalation resistance, making it easier to breathe (exhale)."

3M

The 3M Company is an American multinational corporation working in the areas of industry, protection of employees, health care, and consumer products in the United States.

Over 59,000 products, including passive fire safety, personal protective equipment, window films, paint protection films, healthcare software, and optical films, are manufactured by the company under several brands. It is located in Maplewood, a Minnesota suburb of Saint Paul.

I3M made $32.8 billion in net revenues and placed number 95 by total revenue in the Fortune 500 list of the largest U.S. corporations. The company had around 93,500 employees as of 2018 and had operations in more than 70 countries.

The features make 3m n95 masks effective

3M is a world-renowned brand of N95 masks. It has certification from NIOSH and comes in various types and sizes. The variations between 3M mask models will be introduced by A Rain below. 

N95 masks are particulate safety masks that are capable of removing solid or liquid non-greasy particles with a diameter of 0.3 microns or greater. However, you must test the seal of the edge of the mask (Fit Test) each time you wear a N95 mask to ensure that there is no real leakage protective effect. For individuals with hair on their faces and infants, N95 masks are therefore not appropriate, since these individuals cannot guarantee the tightness of wearing N95 masks.

Valve:

An optional exhalation valve comes with some disposable N95 masks. According to the CDC, "The presence of an exhalation valve decreases exhalation resistance, which makes it easier to breathe (exhale)"

Non-woven polypropylene material:

Polypropylene is effective because that can hold a particle-repelling static charge. While an N95 mask is made to hold that charge for the life of the mask, by ironing the polypropylene or rubbing it with a plastic glove for 20 seconds, you can generate a charge with a homemade filter. The Chu says the charge will last for approximately 12 hours or until it has washed.

Honeywell and 3m, which has most effective

3M seems to be an attractive investment opportunity relative to Honeywell International on the basis of historical results, and given the current climate. With the global economy in recession, the purchasing power of customers is expected to fall, and it will have an effect on the profits of companies such as 3M and Honeywell.

Although 3M manufactures products related to coronavirus, such as masks, the contribution of such products to the top line of the business is likely to be less than 1 percent, and that alone as a consideration does not explain the production of the stock (3M's stock is down by about -15 percent compared to the wider S&P's decline of about 20 percent since early February), in our opinion.

Although we do not expect 3M's healthcare sector to drive any substantial growth for the overall top line of the group relative to Honeywell, its other segments could potentially be less affected, which could face pressure on revenues beyond Q2, especially for its aerospace division. Our report, after declining over -15 percent, is 3 M expensive or cheap compared to Honeywell? Compares 3M and Honeywell International's stock price results and fundamentals over the last few years.
