The low maintenance NIOSH-approved 3M 6000 Series Full Facepiece Respirator is light and well-balanced. An innovative lens design offers a wide field of vision. With limited spare parts, cleaning and care of the face piece are fast and simple. Accepts all 6000 Series cartridges and 2000 Series filters found on our Filters & Cartridges page. If your job does not require a full face respirator, consider purchasing the 3M Half Face Respirator, the 3M 7500 Respirator, or the Asbestos Mask, especially if you are working on older heating vents or ducts, popcorn ceilings, automotive brake linings or pipe insulation. The 3M 6000 Lead and Asbestos Mask Combination is our most recommended and popular respirator package for lead and asbestos protection.
Face piece only - Filters sold separately.
A full face respirator offers many advantages over using a half mask respirator. First, allowing only filtered air to touch your eyes and enter your lungs can be a good thing. For instance, when working with mold, spores can enter through the eyes, causing irritation and disease.
Second, the polycarbonate lens is rated as primary eye protection, meaning that you don't need safety glasses when wearing one. If you wear prescription eyewear, a 3M 6878 Spectacle Kit is offered to fit inside the mask. Wearing contact lenses is discouraged.
Third, is the higher protection factor offered by a full face respirator. In the case of a half mask respirator, the assembly is rated for 10X the PEL or Permissible Exposure Limit. That is, if the PEL for a particular dust or vapor is 5mg/m3, the half mask user may be exposed to 10X that amount. But with a full face respirator, because of the inherently better fit, you may use it up to 50X the PEL. The fit is better because the sealing surfaces against the skin are on the smooth parts of the face, rather than having to work around the nose. As with all masks, facial hair will compromise the seal, and the protection will be reduced or eliminated.
Mask comes with a peel off clear lens cover to protect it from paint and debris. Additional lens covers can be ordered.

I'm using this respirator with HH 66 Vinyl cement to seam seal the GenTent, a product that allows portable generators to be used safely during storms. The respirator is comfortable and with the standard organic filters there is no perceptible smell. This device is now part of the standard gear for the seam sealing operation.
comfortable, lightweight, no obtrusive and works well.
Even with shipping, this respirator costs less from PK than if purchased from my local hardware big box store. Filters are not included but this is obvious when ordering online, so it came as no surprise. Good solid product from 3M.
Works great, comfortable fit.
Does not come with any filters.
Very pleased with the initial technical assistance I received in selecting this product. I then received the product timely and am very pleased with its quality and value. I will definitely re-order with PK Safety Supply, as I'm very pleased with the customer service and range and pricing of products. Excellent, thank you.
Masks fit very well, comfortable
Good visibility Light
Lower strap connection
The set up of the respirator was very easy, and the product is durable. Using the respirator for long periods of time is very uncomfortable around the nose area. There was also some build up of condensation on my safety glasses while using the respirator. Otherwise, the product was effective.
Easy to set up
Use for indoor firearms shooting
It was a great shopping experience. I will definitely continue shopping here.
