3M Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator 6291 P100 - Medium Size
A comfortable, lightweight alternative to more expensive respirators, the 3M™ 6291 Half Facepiece Respirator with P100 Particulate Filters is NIOSH approved. This 3M™ mask helps protect against inhalation of a hazardous atmosphere and certain airborne particles . Respiratory protection may also be helpful in providing a barrier to help prevent infectious materials from contacting the wearer’s mucous membranes such as droplets containing the Ebola virus that have become aerosolized (e.g. coughing, sneezing, etc.) and may have the potential to come into contact with a person’s mucous membranes in their nose or mouth.
This product provides relief from: Asthma, Bacteria & Germs, Dust Allergies, Dust Mites, Mold & Mildew, Pet Dander, Pollen
Comfortable and convenient, 3M™ 6291 P100 Particulate Respirator Mask - Medium Size, will help protect against inhalation of a hazardous atmosphere and certain airborne particles . The NIOSH P100-rated∗ respirator reduces inhalation exposure from allergens, dust, bacteria, viruses, mold, oil and non-oil based mists, and more. Particulate respirators are designed to help reduce the wearer’s exposure to certain airborne particles. However, droplets containing the Ebola virus that have become aerosolized (e.g. coughing, sneezing, etc.) may have the potential to come into contact with a person’s mucous membranes in their nose or mouth. Therefore, respiratory protection may be helpful in providing a barrier to help prevent infectious materials from contacting the wearer’s mucous membranes. The reusable half facepiece respirator comes with a set of P100 filters, and is recommended for working around dust, molds, pets, garage or workshop. The 3M™ 6291 P100 is well suited for those who want NIOSH's highest-rated filtration efficiency (99.97% of particles to 0.3 microns – the HEPA standard), including for particles and oil-based liquid aerosols. Single Reusable Mask Assembly ‒ Available in Medium size only- Latex free.
|∗||NIOSH's P100 rating encompasses and exceeds N95 and N100 in filtration ability. The "P" stands for oil-proof, which means this product not only filters 99.97% of non oil-based particles to 0.3 microns, but also offers added protection against liquid oil-based aerosol particles. "P100" means highest NIOSH filtration rating in this class.|

Do Not Use For:
Gases and vapors, oil aerosols, asbestos, or sandblasting; particulate concentrations that exceed either 10 times the occupational exposure limit or applicable government regulations, whichever is lower. In the U.S., do not use when OSHA substance-specific standards, such as those for arsenic, cadmium, lead in the construction industry, or 4,4’-methylene dianiline (MDA) specify other types of respiratory protection. This respirator does not supply oxygen.
This respirator can help reduce exposure to certain airborne biological particles (e.g., viruses, mold, Bacillus anthracis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, etc.) but cannot eliminate the risk of contracting infection, illness or diseases. OSHA and other government agencies have not established safe exposure limits for these contaminants.
Please carefully read and follow the User Instructions provided with the product. You can additionally refer to the Owner's Manual tab to view instructions for the respirator and its replacement parts.
Cleaning the Facepiece:
Please refer to Owner's Manual tab for detailed cleaning instructions.
- Remove filters or cartridges.
- Wash facepiece in lukewarm water using a neutral cleaning solution, if necessary. Scrub with a soft brush until clean. Rinse in fresh, warm water, and air dry.
- Do NOT clean using detergents with lanolin or other oils.
- Do NOT clean with solvents, as these may degrade some respirator components and reduce respirator effectiveness.
Service Life of P100 Filters and 6001 Organic Vapor Cartridges:
- Replace filters if they become damaged, soiled or if increased breathing resistance occurs. In environments containing only oily aerosols, replace filters after 40 hours of use or 30 days, whichever is first.
- Organic Vapor Cartridges
- Cartridges should be used before the "use by" date shown on cartridge packaging. It is a good idea to write this date on the cartridge when you remove from the packaging.
- Replace cartridges if smell, taste or irritation by contaminants is detected.
- The service life of these cartridges will depend upon activity of wearer (breathing rate), specific type, volatility and concentration of contaminants, and environmental conditions, such as humidity, pressure and temperature.
- It is recommended to replace the respirator if it becomes damaged.
