If you frequently work with powdered and/or mist dyes, you should definitely be wearing protection. This respirator, officially known as the 'Moldex 8000 Series Assembled Respirator', is very comfortable and built to last. With replaceable P100 Particulate Filters (approved by NIOSH) and an easy fit, this respirator is a great way to put safety first, especially if you are in production and dye or use other arts and crafts chemicals on an ongoing basis. The basic respirator and filters protect against dust and mists (but not gases and vapors).
In addition to the basic respirator with P100 Particulate Filters, for even more protection, we also offer a NIOSH approved Multi Gas/Vapor Smart Cartridge filter set. These are recommended if you use bleach, Discharge Paste, Thiorea Dioxide, or Bleach Stop along with various other chemicals that have strong vapors, except perhaps alcohol - we haven't found a mask yet that completely eliminates the smell of alcohol for those who are sensitive. Also remember that in conjunction with these great masks, you should always work in a well ventilated area!
We also carry Piggyback Adaptors (Moldex #8920) which are used to attach the P100 Particulate Filter Disks on top of the Multi Gas/Vapor Smart Cartridges for even more protection.
8000 Series Respirator Facepiece (comes with P100 Particulate Filters) (Moldex #8942)
Your face never had it so comfortable - The 8000 Series Respirator conforms to the contours of your face. It seals comfortably and remains sealed, even while talking. Plus, the seal is extra-wide, so it fits more facial types.
With each cartridge change you get a new inhalation valve - No inhalation valves to stock. No installation. Less maintenance, less parts. And the cartridges snap-in, which eliminates misthreading.

I love my mask! I have mild asthma, and when I mix dyes wearing just a dust mask, my asthma was triggered. Wearing this mask, I have no problems at all! It even came to my rescue when my area had terrible wildfires with awful smoke and ash. I wore the mask during evacuation and then again when cleaning up our house after the fires. Thanks!
