Filter media filters at least 95% of airborne particles.*
*Per ASTM F3502-21 Standard for Barrier Face Coverings. Not a NIOSH approved respirator.
The 3M™ Filtering Barrier Face Covering is a barrier face covering that can also help reduce airborne particulate exposure, when used as instructed. It can be used in crowded places, airplanes or everyday moments to help filter airborne particles.
Designed to be held snugly to the face, allowing air to go through the filter, not through gaps between the product and the wearers face.
Open the face covering, then put it on so the foam and noseclip is across the bridge of nose. Ensure it covers the nose and chin.
Pull each side band behind the head and secure the position as shown.
Press the noseclip toward your nose, then using the fingers of both hands, form the noseclip to the shape of the nose.
To check for proper positioning, cover the product with both hands then breathe out quickly. Check for warm air leaking at the edges or at the nose position and if so, repeat steps 1-4 to reduce leakage.
