The 6000 Series maintenance-free, reusable respirator from 3M is the basic face piece we recommend when starting to build a complete mask. Like the other 3M filter masks we sell, it requires no extra parts to attach the filters or cartridges directly to the facepiece. They attach with a simple 1/4 turn bayonet style fitting and requires no tools. The cartridges and filters are set low on the facepiece to provide better visibility. Use the Asbestos Mask if you are working on heating ducts or vents, popcorn ceilings, or pipe insulation. The 3M 6000 Lead and Asbestos Mask Combination is our most recommended package for lead and asbestos protection. If your job requires protection against organic vapors, choose the 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Cartridge that is NIOSH-approved for a wide variety of organic vapors, and easily attaches to the 3M 6000 and 7500 Series masks. Looking for a perfect filter for protection against toxic dusts and for mold remediation? Use the 3M 2097 Filters that fit on the 3M 6000 and the 3M 7500 Series Half Masks, and the 6000 Series 3M Full Face Respirator. The lightweight design is comfortable for longer periods of wear, while the adjustable cradle suspension holds the respirator in place for maximum fit and comfort. The center section of the mask is dark grey plastic with a rubbery light grey elastomeric compound to provide the seal against the face. We say that the mask is maintenance-free only in comparison to older styles of masks that were quite expensive and had numerous replacement parts available. The price of the 3M 6000 half mask makes this unnecessary. So you can wash the mask with warm soap and water to keep it fresh and clean, but when the seal starts to break down, just replace the mask. NIOSH/MSHA approved.

Everything was great. The products held up nicely, the sizes fit for both of us but most of all, the combo of the mask and the filter that was suggested to me for both cat urine and debris was perfect. I had to shift the mask off my face as it started to hurt my nose and in that one second could smell the overpowering smell in the room. These masks and filters were perfect (sizes fit well for both of us). When on I could smell nothing and felt my lungs were protected. My only suggestion to the manufacturer of the coveralls would be to have elastic band on the wrists. There were roaches and I worked slower on this clean-up than I should have been so roaches would not crawl up my arms. Rubber bands I brought were either too big or too tight. Otherwise I felt very well protected but the smell of cat urine did remain on my old sneakers which I planned to throw away anyway. My sister put 2 plastic bags on her sneakers before placing the coveralls on and that helped preserve her sneakers. No odor was transferred...and you can not blame the cats.....my sister never picked up their mess and they do not want to be in that apt either. They were running around happy in their new cleared clean space.
I did not smell a thing down in that sewage pit! When I got out and made it to the truck, I took the mask off to clean up and gagged at the smell of my clothes, but I did not smell a thing down there.
Very easy to adjust to face, the fit was a good seal and was easy to breathe thru. I liked that it was light weight and didn't interfere with your sight.
FIts well, very versatile- can hang off your neck if you're not using it and can be put on from there with one hand. Overall it has exceeded my expectations; the one downside to the design is that sometimes the straps can get caught on the filters when you are putting it on.
