Our unique manufacturing process injects a powerful electrostatic charge into an open formation material, improving the efficiency of particle trapping while allowing more air to pass through. This results in highly effective respirators—NIOSH-approved and FDA-cleared for fluid resistance.

To be effective, a respirator needs to be worn correctly and worn throughout the duration of the hazardous exposure.
3M™ Half Facepiece Reusable Respirators with replaceable particulate filters offer the protection of N95 filtration with the ability to be disinfected and reused.
This battery-operated respirator system can cover the full face and neck. When used correctly, the HEPA filter can filter 99.97% of airborne particles.
With supply challenges around the world, many facilities are looking to optimize their equipment supply. Read more information on use and reuse of filtering facepiece respirators (FFRs).
