Frequently Bought Together

The 3M 2097 P100 (HEPA) Particulate Filter with Nuisance Level Organic Vapor Relief and Ozone Protection. Use this filter for protection against toxic dusts, such as lead and asbestos, and for mold cleanup and remediation. Use an Asbestos Mask if you are working on older heating vents or ducts, popcorn ceilings, automotive brake linings or pipe insulation. If you're working around mold, or if you are arc welding, then we would suggest using the 3M 2097 Filter. Active mold growth produces Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that won't be absorbed by a lesser filter. Arc welding produces ozone, which also won't be absorbed by a lesser filter. For the protection against a wide variety of organic vapors, use the 3M 6001 that attaches to the 3M 6000 and 7500 Series masks. The 3M 6000 Lead and Asbestos Mask Combination is our most popular respirator package for lead and asbestos protection. If you are also looking for an ideal filter against toxic dusts, like lead and asbestos, or for mold cleanup and remediation, use the 3m 2097 Filters that fit on the 3M 6000, 3M 7500 Series Half Masks, as well as on the 3M 6000 Full Face Respirators.

The 3M 2097 P100 Filter's extremely fine filtration traps all but the most minuscule particles. They protect against asbestos and lead dusts in particular, as well as a host of other dusts, allergens, and fumes. The filters are extremely lightweight and flexible and they fit tight against the mask, which makes wearing this type of mask a bit more comfortable.

The 3M 2097 Filters are what we recommend to use with wood smoke or diesel exhaust, but with a couple of conditions to be aware of. First, no filter or cartridge we offer will protect against carbon monoxide poisoning. Proper ventilation is essential to prevent injury or death. Second, the filter will only remove the particulates and some nuisance organic vapors.There may be other combustion by-products present that are hazardous to your health. For example, a wildfire may burn much more than vegetation, exposing you to a wide variety of respiratory hazards.

The 3M 2097 P100 Filters fit on the 3M 6000 and 3M 7500 Series Half Masks, as well as the 3M 6000 Full Face Respirators. HEPA filtration is rated to remove 99.9% of particles .3 microns and larger. This includes most welding fumes (burnt metal), toxic dusts, like asbestos and lead, Bondo and particles created by bodywork. They also help folks who have allergies to many of the environmental dusts. Sometimes called a pancake filter, they are attached directly to the mask. A simple 1/4 turn locks them on, and no retainers or other attachment methods are needed.

*If there will possibly be welding spatter hitting the filter, this may cause a hole to be burnt through. In this case, it is suggested that you use the 3M 7093 P100 Filter. The 7093 has a plastic case that will resist the hot metal spatter.

    Very Positive

    Posted by Matt on Aug 16th 2017

    Worked in an estate house with mold and maybe aesbestos from decaying paint and collapsing walls and old papers.

    These filters were great. I've changed them once a day (more often than necessary to be extra cautious).

    The only time when I smelled the air from the house was when I removed the mask when I went outside or if the mask slipped (for a second or two maybe once a day).

    These filters are EXCELLENT.

    I'm going to consider these and other filters here for appropriate work around the house too!

    Great product.

    Didn't smell a thing!

    Posted by Susan on Jun 1st 2015

    I chatted with the folks at PK Safety and they suggested these filters. My sisters and I were going through a house that hadn't been cleaned in 50 years. These filters worked great! They were tricky to attach but we didn't smell anything in the 3 hours we were exposed to heavy mold, lead and gasses. Thanks for allowing us to do this job safely!

    Great filter for dust AND catbox odors!

    Posted by Utah Woodworker - with cats on May 19th 2014

    I recently bought the quick-release 3m respirator and bought these filters to go with it. My goal was to filter out dust from woodworking, but when I saw that there was an option to get a similar filter with or without odor blocking, I figured - why not use this for cleaning the catbox too? It works GREAT! Not only are my lungs going to be healthier (no more woodworking dust), but with the odor-blocking filters I can change the cat litter without gagging - I couldn't smell a thing. Awesome.
