3M, as a leader in the disposable respiratory safety category for over 40 years, has offered solutions to keep you comfortable, safe and cool on the job. Our seasoned team of technical experts have developed products meeting North American (NIOSH) Requirements and we've worked hard over the years to understand what makes workers not only wear them but want to wear them.
Comfort, of course, is critical. So we've gone far beyond the basic standard requirements. The Cool Flow valve is a good example, as is the 3M™ Comfort Plus Series.
Sometimes protection is needed against a particulate hazard accompanied by a low level of gases or vapours. So we developed our Specialty Range to relieve the discomfort caused by these contaminants.
We've taken this technology even further with our Premium Welding Fume Respirator. It protects against ozone gas generated in certain types of welding. At the same time the particulate filter technology reduces the rate at which the filter clogs compared to standard filters.
