3M Respirators – NIOSH approved premium quality safety devices
The half and full-mask products from 3M are developed usiing a special bayonet filtration cartridge system. These cartridges can be mixed and matched to provide a wide-range of protection against common environmental hazards such as particulates, vapours, and gases according to NIOSH approvals. High-quality respiratory protection is an absolute necessity for workers in many situations but particularly when spraying paint as the paint is aerosolized and can be easily aspirated.
Sanding and other tasks that involve the aersolization of particles are also a good-time to wear respiratory protection as these particles can cause irritation and/or health problems if they are inhaled. Even in very brief circumstances, unprotected exposure to certain toxic mists and vapours have the potential to be very dangerous.
For both comfort and safety, 3M respiratory devices are amongst the top-choice of respiratory protection.
