When someone calls and asks for an asbestos dust mask, this is the item we recommend. It is our most popular respirator package. We have combined the 3M 6000 Halfmask Respirator with a pair of 3M 2091 P100 Filters to help protect against asbestos, lead, and cadmium dusts. Besides being a great asbestos respirator or lead respirator, it is also good for most types of welding.

Use the asbestos masks if you are working on older heating vents or ducts, "popcorn" ceilings, automotive brake linings or pipe insulation. For lead dust created from grinding off old paint, this respirator should do the trick. This mask is a key part of our Lead and Asbestos Removal Kit.

If the ventilation is less than optimal, like when using a heat gun to remove lead based paint indoors, we suggest moving to the 3M 60926 Multigas/P100 Cartridge. This will add a charcoal layer to absorb any vapors that might be generated. However, please note that carbon monoxide (CO) is not removed by this or any other cartridge, and that CO is potentially deadly. The importance of good ventilation can't be overemphasized.

This 3M HEPA mask and filter combination also offers excellent protection for those sanding or cutting fiberglass or working with fiberglass insulation.

The 3M 6000 Lead and Asbestos Respirator Combination may also be used for respirator protection at indoor shooting ranges. Depending on the ventilation, many shooters report elevated levels of lead in their bloodstream, which is an obvious health hazard. As a lead dust respirator, this mask provides HEPA level protection for your lungs. Lead also clings to clothing. If you have young children at home, it is best to wash your shooting clothing separately from the family laundry.

The disposable 3M Lead Dust Mask is also available.

Assembly Includes:
1 each 3M 6000 Half Mask Respirator (choose size)
1 pair 3M 2091 P100 (HEPA) Filter

*Filters attach directly to the mask with 1/4 turn bayonet-style connector. Other 3M filters will also connect to this mask. The video shows how to assemble and wear the mask.

Mask Sizing
Respirator mask sizes are not quantified with measurements. When choosing your mask size, take into consideration your past experience purchasing hats or glasses. If you typically purchase larger or smaller sizes based on the size and shape of your face, consider doing so when selecting the size of your mask. Usually customers with large faces or prominent noses use the large size, while the rest usually use the medium size. The Respirator Fit Testing Kit is available to determine a perfect fit.

Part Numbers:
6191 - Small 6100 Mask and pair of 2091 Filters
6291 - Medium 6200 Mask and pair of 2091 Filters
6391 - Large 6300 Mask and pair of 2091 Filters

  1. Excellent filter, fit perfectly Review by Renovating 1790's house
    Rating

    I used the 3M 6000 Lead & Asbestos Respirator Combination to demo the plaster/lath walls in our 1790's home. Usually masks are slightly too big for my face (I'm a petite woman), but this fit my face perfectly and there were no gaps for the plaster dust to creep in! It was mostly comfortable to wear. The flexible plastic helped mold it to my face, but made it very hot very fast. Overall, it did its job and filtered out all the dust and plaster from demo. I would recommend it to anybody who is renovating. (Posted on 7/14/14)

  2. Great Product Review by Concerned Spouse
    Rating

    Bought this for my Husband so that he could scrape the popcorn ceiling in our house and we were worried that it might contain asbestos. I had one heck of a time finding anything else out there and finally decided to try finding a mask online. Found this website and was a little worried but everything worked out just fine. Received the respirator right on time and it worked perfectly. Fits my Husbands face great and he has no complaints. So glad I found this website. (Posted on 7/3/14)

  3. Nice respirator Review by KM
    Rating

    Very nice-fitting respirator. I wear this when doing demo work for things like brick/concrete dust, fiberglass,etc. And this does what I need it to do. It's very lightweight and comfortable to wear. Didn't give five stars because taking it off and putting it back on when wearing a hard hat and safety glasses/goggles isn't very practical....although not that big of a deal. (Posted on 5/1/14)

  4. Leaded Glass Artist Review by THS
    Rating

    GREAT FIT and very comfortable! I can even wear my glasses and they don't steam up! Really happy with this mask and the strap is very comfortable too, you really hardly feel like you are wearing anything. I have tried several other masks for my work and found I would never wear them because of various issues (comfort, fit and steamed up glasses). (Posted on 3/17/14)

  8. I think it worked well Review by Rowland
    Rating

    It felt like this mask made a tight seal around my face (and I have a short beard), and it felt like the filters were working. So as far as I can see, it did the job. Now, I didn't do a reading of my blood lead levels before and after the project, so I just have anecdotal evidence it worked. Plus this is the only respirator I have ever used, so I have nothing to compare it to. But the price was right, and the quality seems to be there.

    Pros:

  12. 3m 6000 respirator works well Review by Dale
    Rating

    Comfortable for short periods of time. Works very well at keeping the dust/debris out of your mouth/nose/lungs. I used it for removing old paint. Paper masks seem almost useless for this and most other applications. This worked well for paint removal. Also used it for grinding rust off of metal parts with the wire wheel. Kept the rust dust out of my lungs very well too! After two or three days of use, it really started to hurt the bridge of my nose. Might be worth trying the more expensive silicon one if you are using more than one day.

  15. Good Product Review by Al
    Rating

    I used this to tear out plaster and lathe walls in our house. There was also 'rock wool' or 'mineral wool' insulation, which is nasty stuff. I did not have a problem with ANY of the dust getting into the mask, and the house was full of dust during tear out. The mask was easy to put on and use. I like that it came in a resealable plastic bag.After several hours of use the mask started to hurt the bridge of my nose. If I did this for a living I would look for a more comfortable mask. This is why I gave it 4 stars and not 5.

    Pros:
    Easy to use, Nice to buy one package

    Cons:
    Not the most comfortable

    "Finally a face mask that you can get a good fit by choosing sizes. I have a large head and had problems with getting a good fit.This mask fixes that problem. It is comfortable and easy to breathe in and out. I work in a wood workshop and create a lot of dust. This takes care of the problem.
    Plus it comes with a set of filters so you are set to go when you receive it.
    I have tried several types of masks and this is the one. And a good brand name and you can get replacement filters quick and easy."

    Pros;
    IT FITS! Pick your size.
    Comfortable.
    Good seal around my face.

    Comments from PK Safety:

    "Hi Jane,

    Blame NIOSH for the pink! The color is part of their code for N-, R-, and P-100 Particulate filters. If you see pink, it means the filter will pick up 99.9% of all particles down to 3 microns.

    Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

    Bought two masks and 4 filters to protect the wife and me for a reorganization of items in the attic. This was done after a new roof was installed and lots of small debris and roof dust had fallen through. These masks met the challenge.

  45. Great product, great price! Review by John H.
    Rating

    I ordered the respirator prior to reading about the sizing info. Fortunately I have a large noggin and the large sized respirator fits quite well, and is doing the job brilliantly. My old 1930 built house is chock full of 7 layer thick paint with at least the first three containing lead. Having the respirator properly fitted and in place allows me to scrape away the old paint in comfort knowing I am protected from the lead fumes and dust. I looked at the same product listed on other sites asking much more $$ for the item. With shipping, my cost was under $25, and now my restoration projects are right on target again. Thanks for the great product and the great price!

    Pros:
    Convenience of use, easy to adjust fitting straps.

    Cons:
    Nothing.

    Got two masks for my wife and me to clean up our attic before we get too old to move things around. Lots of dust and insulation and way too much old stuff we need to get rid of. After several days of heavy work these masks were still meeting the challenge. Comfortable to wear but did occasionally need to be wiped out if moisture collected. I would get this mask again. Very fast shipping. (Posted on 3/1/13)

Overall Rating?

Questions:

Answers:

  • If it were me, I'd really prefer to have an activated charcoal cartridge to remove the smell as well. Sounds like an exceptionally smelly project. I'd suggest something like the Moldex 7000 Mask Combo.

    It's important that there is still good ventilation in the location, or dangerous organic vapors can easily develop.

Answers:

  • Because the shape of people’s faces vary so widely, there is not a standardized size (4 inches across and 5 inches high, for example). Moldex and 3M both operate under the belief that most faces are about the same size. 80% of people fit the Medium size in these masks.

    For the 10% on either side of that middle range, with either a larger or smaller face, we generally say those folks will have a good idea about their face size because of previous experience with hats and sunglasses.

Answers:

  • The P100 HEPA filters trap dust and particles like a strainer. Once the filters have successfully blocked a large amount of particulate matter, they still won’t let that material into your lungs. They do however start allowing less air to past through, and breathing will become more and more difficult.

    You may not notice it at first, but as the filters clog up, it will become harder to suck in a breath. Trust us, you’ll notice eventually. That’s when you know it’s time to replace the filters.

    If you don't notice breathing becoming more difficult, it's still recommended to change the filters after between 30 and 40 hours of use.

    Replacement 3M 2091 filters currently cost $6.25 per pair.
