A convenient respiratory kit designed for specific painting and spraying environments. Typical applications/Hazards: Paint spraying, Pesticide spraying, Chemical handling of organic vapours, e.g. from thinners and adhesives, Fibre glassing, Printing, and Furniture manufacturing. When requiring combined face, eye and respiratory protection. When a higher protection factor is required. Note: Not to be used when spraying isocyanate-based paints.
Common Applications/Hazards: Suitable for certain asbestos work requiring higher protection levels: Refer to local asbestos government guidelines (Safework Australia or Worksafe NZ). Also, for lead paint removal, sanding, sawing, drilling, cutting, grinding, masonry, insulation and hazardous particulates such as silica & beryllium. Environments requiring face and eye protection Protection Factors. Note that any filtering respirator should not be used for protection at airborne concentrations of contaminants above the relevant IDLH levels.
