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.
Illustration of how 3M’s electrostatically charged microfibers—magnified 10,000 times—attract and capture particles from the air.
*According to ASTM F1862 at 160 mm Hg
To be effective, a respirator needs to be worn correctly and worn throughout the duration of the hazardous exposure.
