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.
We offer the 3M 6000 Series Half Face Respirator as an assembly with a filter/cartridge combination for pesticides and paint spray. You get a complete mask, with all the parts needed to get right to work. For protection against a wide variety of organic vapors, use the 3M 6001 Cartridge that attaches to the 3M 6000 and 7500 Series masks. We carry the popular 3M 7500 Respirator, which is a favorite among workers who require wearing a respirator for long periods of time. Also, take a look at the 3M Full Face Respirator that offers the highest level of protection.
Applications: For paint, we are thinking oil-based, primarily, but the odor and mist from latex paints are taken care of as well. For pesticides, just about any commercially available type that is intended for the home consumer audience will be covered. Professional exterminators may want to check more closely, as they have access to a wider variety of toxic stuff. Useful against most common pesticides and herbicides, oil- and water-based paints, though not for urethane-based products.
Please note that urethane-based coatings may contain isocyanates, which are not effectively removed by organic vapor (charcoal) cartridges.
Each 3M 6000 assembly comes with the following items.
Also recommended for Diacetyl. This is a flavor additive used in the production of 'buttered' microwave popcorn. Interesting, but this is a rather potent respiratory hazard, and requires the use of organic vapor cartridges and a dust/mist prefilter. The 3M 7500 Paint and Pesticide Respirator offers the same protection and enhanced comfort for a somewhat higher price.
