NIOSH Items: We only sell brand new respirators, filters, and dust masks from US based manufacturers. Since it can be difficult to determine if a respirator or mask has been used or even just tried on, for the protection of our customers, we do not accept NIOSH returns.
The 7500 Series is 3M's best half mask and a favorite among workers who require a respirator for long periods of time or who require one for multiple projects. The 7500 Series Respirator uses easy-to-connect 3M cartridges and filters for easy compatibility. The 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Cartridge attaches to the 3M 6000 and 7500 series masks and is NIOSH-approved for a wide variety of organic vapors. If you are removing lead paint or asbestos, make sure to add a pair of 3M 2091 P100 (HEPA) Filters or 3M 7093 P100 Filters. Be sure to wear the mask for protection against lead dust created from grinding off old paint. Use the 3M 2097 Filters that fit on the 3M 6000/3M 7500 Series half masks, and the 3M 6000 Full Face Respirators for protection against toxic dusts, such as lead and asbestos, and for mold cleanup and remediation. Wear the Asbestos Mask if you are working on older heating vents or ducts, popcorn ceilings, automotive brake linings or pipe insulation. Also, consider wearing the 6000 Series 3M Full Face Respirator and the 6000 Series Half Face Respirator that offer the highest level of protection.
The 3M 7500 Series Half Facepiece Respirator is made of soft silicone which conforms to a range of face shapes better than other materials, and debris or paint isn't as likely to stick to its slippery exterior.
NOTE: The 3M filters and cartridges are not included and will have to be ordered separately.
When choosing your mask size, take into consideration your past experience purchasing hats or glasses. If you typically purchase larger or smaller sizes based on the size and shape of your face, consider doing so when selecting the size of your mask. Usually, customers with large faces or prominent noses use the large size, while the rest usually use the medium size.
