The 3M™ Rugged Comfort 6500 Series Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator helps provide respiratory protection in harsh, dirty environments against airborne contaminants when used with approved 3M™ cartridges and filters. This facepiece is designed to help promote comfort, durability, and stability with a firm, lightly textured silicone face seal and strong body construction. When properly fitted and used with approved 3M™ cartridges and filters, this respirator helps provide respiratory protection at concentrations up to 10 times the relevant Workplace Exposure Standard. While being the lightest silicone 3M facepiece, it is still rugged enough to withstand long hours and extreme conditions. The resilient silicone face seal offers an extended facepiece life, even keeping its shape in high-heat environments.
The facepiece offers numerous other comfort features. Two innovative design features have been built in: a special valve cover that helps to direct exhaled breath and moisture downward and 3M’s proprietary Cool Flow™ Valve that helps to make breathing easier by reducing heat and moisture. Made to fit securely and comfortably on the head, the facepiece comes with an adjustable head harness assembly featuring long-lasting polyester/spandex straps that stretch and conform to the individual who wears the respirator. This facepiece is compatible with all 3M™ bayonet-style filters and cartridges, including 6000 Series Cartridges and 3M™ 2000 or 5000 Series Filters, to help provide respiratory protection against a variety of gases, vapours, and particulate hazards according to Australian /New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1715 & 1716. This filter compatibility helps to make the respirator highly versatile for many workplace environments and a variety of jobs where respiratory protection is required.
A durable, long-lasting respirator, the 6500 Series facepiece is rugged enough to help withstand extreme conditions and long hours, yet comfortable to wear. The sleek, low-profile design helps to give a worker a wide field of view that better suits compact work spaces and close proximity to co-workers. The overmoulded design offers simplified cleaning and maintenance with fewer parts and crevices where dirt can hide.
Breathing hazardous particles, gases and vapours can be harmful to your health. The 3M™ Rugged Comfort Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator 6500 Series helps reduce exposure to many contaminants when properly fitted and used with approved 3M™ cartridges and filters.
