During the public health emergency of the COVID-19 pandemic, these standard N95 “industrial” respirators may be used by healthcare professionals according to the U.S. FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). 3M™ Particulate Respirator 8210 is not cleared by the U.S. FDA as a surgical mask, as a surgical mask and is not considered fluid resistant, therefore a face shield must be worn during use.

3M Particulate Respirator 8210, N95 is a disposable particulate respirator that is designed to help provide reliable respiratory protection of at least 95 percent filtration efficiency against certain non-oil based particles. This respirator is designed for use for particles such as those from grinding, sanding, sweeping, sawing, bagging, or other dusty operations. This respirator can also help reduce inhalation exposures to certain airborne biological particles (examples: mold, Bacillus anthracis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis), but cannot eliminate the risk of contracting infection, illness, or disease. The respirator incorporates 3M’s proprietary technology with advanced electrostatically charged microfiber filter media designed for ease of breathing. This respirator is compatible with a variety of protective eyewear and hearing protection.

This particulate respirator is NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) approved for environments containing certain non-oil based particles and provides at least 95 percent filter efficiency.

Breathing hazardous particles can pose a risk to your health. NIOSH, a Federal government regulatory agency, has tested and approved the 3M Particulate Respirator 8210, which is designed to help reduce exposure to certain airborne particles.

WARNING: These respirators help reduce exposures to certain airborne contaminants. Before use, the wearer must read and understand the User Instructions provided as a part of the product packaging. In the U.S., a written respiratory protection program must be implemented meeting all the requirements of OSHA 1910.134 including training, fit testing and medical evaluation. In Canada, CSA standards Z94.4 requirements must be met and/or requirements of the applicable jurisdiction, as appropriate. Misuse may result in sickness or death. For proper use, see package instructions, supervisor, or call 3M OH&ESD Technical Service in USA at 1-800-243-4630 and in Canada at 1-800-267-4414.

3M™ Particulate Respirator 8210, N95 160 EA/Case is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weak Straps! I have purchased 3m N95s before and I would normally rate them as 5. But I am disappointed in this recent version. The straps are made of inferior grade materials and break easily while putting them on. In the past, for light usage tasks, I had been able to reuse the mask multiple times. This mask was only worn a few times and a strap broke. I reattached it, and it instantly broke again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Normal N95 I work in a factory where we do a lot of machining, polishing, and grinding. I've worn these masks or other 3M N95 masks for 8 hours a day, for a few years now. I can usually get a week out of them before the strap breaks, but that is more than enough time since they are pretty dirty by then. This is accomplished by stretching the straps before use. The straps are tight for the first day, but stretch out as you wear it and it becomes more comfortable. It seals tight around my face and is comfortable around my nose. The breathability is good and as the mask gets brown and dirty, the inside stays perfectly clean as it should. Only downsides are they are a little tough, but not impossible, to wear with safety glasses and during the summer when its hot, it's a little uncomfortable- not unlike most masks. In the summer I prefer to wear the 8210V that features an exhalation valve for better cooling and exhaling. I also found the 9010 fold type mask allows for easier usage of glasses due to its design. I rate all 3 masks 5 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Non-functional Straps pull out immediately, rendering product useless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a quality product Like others, I found the top strap snapped immediately when stretched. I also thought it might be counterfeit but the lot numbers checked out. I understand that one is supposed to pre-stretch the straps but it's easy to forget when trying to meet patient needs quickly in a clinic setting. Not the quality I expect from 3M.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very uncomfortable This mask is so tight. Im not a big guy...6'3'' and 220 lbs. The straps usually break when putting over my head and once on tight around my head. Why not make larger sizes??? I work in healthcare and this is the only mask we are allowed to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easier to breathe and talk Easy to breathe and talk. Fits very snug and if you pinch nose piece helps end fogged glasses. Elastic broke third wear. 3M- Do these help protect from covid?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor straps I bought these masks in Sept. The strap broke when I put it on. I checked the lot and products numbers on3M fraud site numbers were legitimate. When I placed the order I thought I was ordering the 8210 plus with the braided elastic straps. The distributor just told me that 3M is no longer making the N95 8210 plus masks is this true? I'm unable to add a photo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from watch for particles inside the mask I bought a box of these masks several years ago, in consideration of smoke from California wildfires infiltrating the Bay Area. So that should put the purchase well before counterfeits were on the market. The masks work fine as far as I can tell, for filtration purposes. There is a lot of humid air that wafts up and fogs my glasses even when they are properly fitted as far as I can tell; I don't know that I would disqualify the masks for use on that account, though. There is a strip of gray foam material on the inside top; I'm not exactly sure what the design purpose is. However, now when I wear the masks, that material crumbles during first use, and turns into black particles which you breathe in. Net effect, if you sneeze into a clean white tissue after wearing a fresh mask for an hour, you will eject a lot of such particles. That can't be good. I clean them out of the mask with some scotch tape for re-wearing, and it's fine. Perhaps I should be crushing and removing that gray foam before first wearing, to avoid this issue. Regardless, I think this is something that 3M should be looking into, as regards the safety of the mask itself.
