This 3M Series 6000 mask can be used with various types of filters, from particles to organic vapour types. I have used the latter lately as I’ve been doing a lot of spray and paint gun jobs. The mask seals tightly (it comes in various sizes), and is very comfortable and light. More importantly, it’s easy to breathe through, unlike a previous branded mask I’ve tested.
The filters clip on with a quarter turn and are just a few pounds for a set. The only negative is that my paint goggles fit very tightly in the thick plastic nose part, but another pair solved this. All in all, you could not expect more from a respirator, especially at this price point.
VERDICT: Protect your lungs for £20 – bargain!
