This combined cartridge/P100 filter provides protection against mercury vapors, chlorine gases, and sulfur dioxide, and particulates. It can be used by professionals in a variety of applications, including petrochemical, laboratories, pharmaceutical, and chemical manufacturing. It is approved by NIOSH and features a convenient swept-back design that provides enhanced visibility, balance, and comfort.
When properly fitted, the 3M 60926S P100 cartridge helps provide respiratory protection from mercury vapors, chlorine gasses, and sulfur dioxide as well as non-oil- and oil-based particulates at concentrations up to 10 times the permissible exposure limit (PEL) with half facepieces or 50 times PEL with full facepieces.
