This respirator routes exhaled air downward to prevent fogging
The Series 6500 Rugged Comfort half-facepiece reusable respirator can withstand long hours and extreme conditions, while maintaining comfort of wear. The over-molded design also offers users simplified cleaning and maintenance, while protecting them from harmful dusts, gases, vapors and sprays. The respirator’s soft, but firm silicone faceseal holds up in high heat and is equipped with polyester straps. The low-profile design allows for compatibility with other personal protective equipment and includes a valve cover that directs exhaled breath and moisture downward to reduce fogging. — 3M, St. Paul, Minn.
