what N100 or P100 respirator will work best in your workplace, call our expert customer
service representatives at 800-637-6606 and they'll point you in the right direction.
Not all protective respirator masks are the same. N100 masks are designed to protect
the wearer from inhaling non-oil-based particulates, and according to OSHA standards,
they must prevent 99.97 percent of those particulates from getting in when properly worn.
They're ideal for grinding, sanding, mineral processing and other activities that do not
involve oil-based hazards. People working on construction sites, in dry food processing
areas and in agricultural processing stations can benefit from using N100 respirators. They
block dangerous hazards like lead, cadmium, arsenic and methylenedianiline, commonly referred
to as MDA. All the N100 masks in EnviroSafetyProducts' catalog are NIOSH-approved.
P100 respirators are effective at blocking 99.97 percent of oil-based particulates when
properly worn. They can protect wearers from exposure to dust, fumes and hazardous mists.
P100 masks are ideal for construction environments, food processing plants, agricultural
applications and pharmaceutical manufacturing. They also provide complete protection against
non-oil-based particulates, like lead, arsenic and cadmium. P100 respirators are often used
during welding, as well. Each P100 mask in our inventory meets OSHA and NIOSH standards.
N100 and P100 Masks for Protection against Avian Flu, Swine Flu and Other Diseases
The Centers for Disease Control tested N100 and P100 masks for their efficacy against
avian flu, swine flu and other contagious diseases and found them to provide superior
protection. Since N100 respirators and P100 respirators are capable of blocking the majority
of airborne hazards, people often use them to prevent the spread of dangerous diseases.
Proper Use of N100 and P100 Respirators
Moldex and 3M respirators, like all other respirators, are ineffective if they aren't
used properly. It's important to make sure each employee in your workplace is properly
trained to use them for maximum effectiveness. OSHA requires employers to educate their
workers on the proper use of all required PPE, so setting up a comprehensive training
plan goes hand-in-hand with purchasing top-quality P100 and N100 respirators.
Employees need to know how to seal N100 and P100 masks to their faces, how to use
masks in conjunction with other PPE like safety goggles
and hearing protection, and how to adjust the masks
for maximum comfort.
Which N100 Mask or P100 Mask is Right for Your Workplace?
Remember that N100 masks are not rated for protection against oil-based particulates,
but P100 respirators are. If you're having a hard time choosing the right respirator for
your workplace, just call 800-637-6606. Our customer service representatives are highly
trained when it comes to respirators, and they can help you make the most cost-effective,
