" Whatever the job, it's good. Dust or fumes I have never smelt anything come through no matter the density of the hazard. This is the only one I will ever buy. "

Don't last forever.
12 Feb 2016
By
, Weymouth
" Carbon filter only lasts about a month once the sealed bag has been opened. After this, it's effectiveness at filtering fumes such as isocyanates (the main component in catalysed hardeners) declines.Since isocyanates are one of the most dangerous neurotoxins known to man, you don't want to take the risk of building an intolerance to them. If using for this type of work, I'd follow the advice on the data sheet closely. That said, it's a great mask, good fit and comfortable. I use one all the time. "

" This respirator mask really does the job.
Used it when sanding 3 floors and applying 2-part varnish. Nothing gets past it.
Zero fumes detected wearing this thoroughly recommended mask which is remarkable.

A breath of fresh air
15 Jan 2016
By
, Wirral
" The mask comes in its on little protective bag which should be used to keep it in when not in use. The mask itself is comfortable to wear for extended periods once you have it fitted, it is well designed and is unobtrusive and if you wear safety glass as well they won't steam up. The mask does an exceptional job of filtering out dust and the fumes from cellulose sanding sealer, thinners, spirit stains, metholated spirits, and superglue that I use. Although it is a disposable mask it should last a lot longer than fold flat type masks and in my opinion is more cost effective. Well worth it. "

Breathe easy with this mask.
4 Jan 2016
By
, Liverpool
" I restore Victorian floors so lots of dust generated lifting & cutting grinding etc, used various makes over the years from very expensive to throwaways .
This is a comfortable mask and if a glasses wearer can be adjusted so your specs don't steam up.
I also use a sealer which can be really invasive smell-wise.
This mask is great , not had any problems at all.

Worth the money
28 Dec 2015
By
, Scarborough
" This mask is great, defiantly worth the money. Don't keep wasting time and money with them throw away masks. You can tell this mask works, when you've been in the loft all day amongst dust and fibre glass and you blow into tissue and its clear, you'll know what I mean if you've ever done this with the throw away masks. If this broke I would get another straight away. Quick gentle Hoover on filters and wipe down silicone mask with baby wipes and its sorted for round 2. "

" Worth every penny. Used mainly for DIY / house renovation, copes exceptionally well with dust & fumes. Thin cotton type masks were a waste of time (just collected debris). Didn't want to spend a small fortune on something that might not fit. Read the reviews & gave this a try. Fits very well considering I have (my friends tell me) a big(ish) nose! Also bought the mrs one so she could lend a hand so found it fits a wide variety of face shapes. Don't waste money on anything cheaper & don't go without one... I don't want to think what I might have inhaled over the last few years! "

" Been doing a lot of concrete grinding past few months fitting adapted bathrooms and using disposable masks which no matter how tight you put them on you still breath in loads of dust. Used this mask on my last two jobs , fits well no gaps round your nostrils and chin. NO DUST INSIDE MASK! BRILLIANT "

Fantastic Mask.
5 Nov 2015
By
, Liverpool
" Superb piece of kit at a brilliant price.
I work a lot with power saws and sanders and found with other cheaper masks that my breathing was suffering afterwards.
NOT with this mask, no smells, no particles and definitely no dust got through.
Thanks 3M and Screwfix for saving my lungs :-D

" These really are the best I've used. Not only do they stop all dust they also work a treat with smells. A must have when you work with smelly people or in dirty people's houses. I hoover the filters and get really good life out of them. You can smell how well they work by spraying air freshener or paint then popping it straight on. You can't smell a thing. "

" Bought this to enable me to use CA glues (super glues) because I have become allergic to them through continual use. The mask seems effective as I cannot smell the vapor from the glue when using it. Very comfortable to wear. A little annoyed they have reduced the price since I bought it about 10 days ago. "

11 Sep 2015

" Bought this to replace the same product. Can't even remember how old the one I'm replacing is, but it still worked effectively.... Only reason replacing is that the plastic where the straps attached has finally given up.
This mask fits nicely, even over my substantial beard I still feel protected. Have used for spray paint, power sanding, metal grinding, wood scroll sawing, loft insulation, loads of tasks. It's a nice size and not bulky like those with external filters. I'm thinking that this will last well over a year, despite the recommendations to change every month.
Look after it, and it will look after you.
Job done. "
