Respirator needed ?

5 posts in this topic

Posted

Hello Everyone - 

I typically use the small testor bottles thinned with lacquer thinner or after my recent experience with gravity colors I will definitely like to use them again. My question here is , is a dust mask sufficient enough for my health when paining with these? If not which respirators do you recommend I purchase? I saw some  on amazon from 3M for about $25 which I do not mind spending if it is what is needed. 

I purchased a $5 3M one from Walmart however Im not sure that will suffice. Thank you!

I use a 3M Respirator I got from a safety equipment store, paid about $35.00.  They last a long time.  Right now mine is letting in some paint smells, so I think I have to replace it.

Yea I ended up going with a dual cartridge 3M respirator I found on amazon for about $20/$25. Better safe than sorry! 

 

Thanks guys!
