3M 6000 series half mask

3M 6000 series half mask

The 6000 series half mask (half facepiece respirator) from 3M is an economical, low-maintenance, reusable mask that’s easy to handle and designed for simplicity. Manufactured in an elastomeric material that’s lightweight and comfortable to wear over long shifts, it includes a cradle head harness with an easy-fasten neck strap. It features a bayonet-style connection that fits a broad range of twin filters and vapour cartridges to provide protection against gases, vapours and/or particulates. The twin-filter design evenly balances weight across the mask, and the low profile means minimal impact to the wearer's field of vision and better compatibility with welding and grinding shields. This half mask connects with all 3M™ 2000, 5000 and 6000 Series filters and vapour cartridges (except 3M™ 6098 or 6099). Available in sizes Small, Medium and Large.


Complies with European standard EN 140:1998 (Respiratory protective devices - half masks and quarter masks) 


Applications: Protection against particulates (dusts, oil/water based mists) and a wide variety of hazardous vapours & gases (dependent on chosen filter) when painting, welding, chemical handling, construction, utilities, mining, pharmaceutical, and smelting.
