Reduce the risk of dangerous cross contamination with this 3M surgical mask. The 3M 1820 Surgical Mask prevents exposure to bodily fluids and blood through its fluid resistant pleated construction. Hypo-allergenic to avoid allergic reactions and earloop straps make this 3M surgical mask safe and comfortable to wear. The 3M 1820 Surgical Mask has a bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) of 99% and is appropriate for most general patient care applications. Surgical Mask also offers a 91% particle filter efficiency (PFE). Not NIOSH approved.
The 3M 1818 Surgical Mask provides protection from bodily fluids and blood for most surgical and general patient use applications. With tie-on straps accepting a wide variety of head sizes and fluid-resistant nature, this 3M surgical mask feels comfortable to any wearer and protects from fluids and bacteria at a 99% bacterial efficiency (BFE) level. Surgical Mask also offers a 95% particle filter efficiency (PFE). Not NIOSH approved.
The use of N-Series Respirators is typically limited only by hygiene, damage, and increased breathing resistance; however, when working in very dirty or dusty workplaces that may result in high filter loading (200 mg), service time should be limited to eight hours of continuous or intermittent use, unless an evaluation is done to prove that extended use will not significantly degrade efficiency levels. R-Series Respirators should only be used for one working shift (or for eight hours of continuous or intermittent use) when oil is present; however, when oil is not present, there is no specific service time. The use of P-Series Respirators is limited only by hygiene, damage, and increased breathing resistance. Welding Approved Respirators offer unique protective layers that are designed to be flame-resistant as demonstrated per ASTM D2859-96 (#70015, 80649 do not meet ASTM D2859-96).
A great choice for Healthcare Professionals. The 3M 1860 respirator has a soft inner shell for greater comfort against the face and, because it's fluid-resistant, it aids in reducing the potential exposure of the wearer to blood and other bodily fluids. The 3M 1860 respirator offers greater than 99% bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) against wearer-generated microorganisms and is designed to filter certain airborne particles (size range of 0.1 to greater than 10.0 microns). For areas with an oil mist, use an R or P respirator. Meets CDC guidelines for TB exposure control.
