3M Respirator Mask, Filters & Accessories




3M 6000 Respirator Mask / Particulate Filters / Vapour Cartridges:

It is essential to wear a quality respirator mask to minimize inhaling all the steel and composite particles & toxic vapors while making knives. Some wood species for instance are hazardous to the lungs with similar properties as asbestos.

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 face piece. They attach with a simple 1/4 turn bayonet style fitting and requires no tools. The cartridges and filters are set low on the face piece to provide better visibility.

particulates and a wide variety of gases and vapors, silica
