OSHA has issued a final rule (March 2016, OSHA Respirable Crystalline Silica in Construction Regulations - 29 CFR 1926.1153) for America's workers, limiting their exposure to respirable crystalline silica, a substance OSHA has stated can increase the risk of developing silicosis, lung cancer and kidney disease. 3M has resources and PPE to help you as you work to meet the new exposure limit and help protect your crew. This disposable N95 particulate respirator features the proprietary 3M Cool Flow Valve and helps provide comfortable, reliable worker respiratory protection. It is ideally suited for hot/dusty work settings that require long periods of wear. M uses a variety of innovative technologies and features to help you meet your respiratory protection and comfort needs. The respirator incorporates 3M's proprietary technology with advanced electrostatically charged microfiber filter media, designed for ease of breathing. The proprietary 3M Cool Flow Exhalation Valve reduces heat build-up inside the respirator to help keep the wearer more comfortable. The soft inner material provides added comfort while the cup shape design makes the respirator spacious and durable. These features, along with the braided headbands and adjustable M-noseclip, are designed to enhance user comfort and help increase wearability. Meets NIOSH 42 CFR 84 N95 requirements.
