3M’s new Particulate Respirator 9211 is designed for optimum comfort while performing grinding, sanding, sweeping, bagging and other operations that create dust.
The respirator features a low-profile collapse-resistant design, 3M’s patented Cool Flow Exhalation Valve, and a soft nose foam pad. Respirators are individually packaged to improve convenience and to help prevent contamination during storage.
According to 3M, the respirator allows for a good field of vision, is compatible with protective eyewear, and fits a wide range of face sizes.
The low profile allows improved visibility and is compatible with a wide range of safety equipment, while the Cool Flow Exhalation Valve is positioned for cool, easy breathing, the company says.
3M 9200 Series respirators also feature a soft web on the inner panels to improve comfort against the skin. Wide headbands provide a comfortable and secure face seal, according to 3M. This respirator contains no components made from natural rubber latex.
