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.
The 3M™ Particulate Respirator 8511, N95 is a disposable particulate respirator designed to help provide reliable respiratory protection against certain non oil based particles. This respirator can help reduce inhalation exposure to certain airborne biological particles, such as mould, Bacillus Anthracis, and Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, but it cannot eliminate the risk of contracting infection, illness, or disease. Soft inner material provides added comfort while the respirator's cup design makes it spacious and durable. Braided headbands and an adjustable M nose clip help provide a custom and secure seal. The respirator incorporates 3M’s proprietary technology with advanced electrostatically charged microfibre filter media designed for ease of breathing. This respirator is compatible with a variety of protective eyewear and hearing protection. Fitted with a 3M™ Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve, this respirator is ideally suited for work situations involving heat, humidity, or long periods of wear. The proprietary valve is designed to release hot, humid exhaled breath quickly, helping to prevent an unpleasant build up of heat inside the facepiece a significant cause of discomfort to respirator wearers. The valve’s efficiency in keeping breathing cool and comfortable has been demonstrated through testing*: the atmosphere inside a respirator with a Cool Flow valve is on average 7.5°F ( 13.6°C) cooler than a similar product without the valve. This makes 3M™ Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve respirators ideal for long periods of wear, especially where conditions are hot, humid or physically demanding. *Testing conducted in a 3M laboratory. Testing protocol, data generation, and conclusions were reviewed and approved by an expert from The University of Minnesota.
