The low maintenance NIOSH-approved 3M 6000 Series Full Facepiece respirator is light and well-balanced. An innovative lens design offers a wide field of vision. With limited spare parts, cleaning and care of the face piece are fast and simple. Accepts all 6000 Series cartridges and 2000 Series filters found on our filters & cartridge pages. If your job does not require a full face respirator, consider purchasing the 3m half face respirator, the 3m 7500 respirator, or the asbestos mask, especially if you are working on older heating vents or ducts, popcorn ceilings, automotive brake linings or pipe insulation. The 3M 6000 Lead and Asbestos Mask Combination is our most recommended and popular respirator package for lead and asbestos protection.

Face piece only - Filters sold separately.

A full face respirator offers many advantages over using a half mask respirator. First, allowing only filtered air to touch your eyes and enter your lungs can be a good thing. For instance, when working with mold, spores can enter through the eyes, causing irritation and disease.

Second, the polycarbonate lens is rated as primary eye protection, meaning that you don't need safety glasses when wearing one. If you wear prescription eyewear, a 3M 6878 Spectacle Kit is offered to fit inside the mask. Wearing contact lenses is discouraged.

Third, is the higher protection factor offered by a full face respirator. In the case of a half mask respirator, the assembly is rated for 10X the PEL or Permissible Exposure Limit. That is, if the PEL for a particular dust or vapor is 5mg/m3, the half mask user may be exposed to 10X that amount. But with a full face respirator, because of the inherently better fit, you may use it up to 50X the PEL. The fit is better because the sealing surfaces against the skin are on the smooth parts of the face, rather than having to work around the nose. As with all masks, facial hair will compromise the seal, and the protection will be reduced or eliminated.

Mask comes with a peel off clear lens cover to protect it from paint and debris. Additional lens covers can be ordered.

    How to determine mask size

      Companies like 3M and Moldex operate under the assumption that the majority of people have about the same sized face. Therefore roughly 85-90% of population will fit into a medium sized respirator. If you are one of the relatively small part of the population that fits into the small and large sizes, you already have an idea because of your previous experiences purchasing hats or safety glasses.

    How do I know the correct size to purchase for the 3M 6000 full face?

      The short answer is the Medium fits 80% of people just fine. If you know from previous experience with hats or glasses that you have a larger or smaller head, then choose accordingly.<br>

    For the 6000 series full face mask what filter cartridges will work best for casting lead sinkers and also for heating up or welding galvanized metal? Mostly for heating and bending galvanized metal as this full face unit won't work with a welding helmet. Mostly this will be for the molten lead fumes. Thank You, D Bloom

      The filter we would recommend for lead fumes is a P100 (HEPA). On the 3M 6000 series masks, the best choice is the 7093. This filter is housed in a plastic case, and that would resist sparks from welding better. Using the half mask, rather than the full face respirator, would allow you to get under most welding helmets. If you go this route, please where tight fitting goggles when melting the lead weights. The 3M 7093 filter will fit either full face or half mask 3M 6000 series respirators.

    Would this mask be good for spraying chemicals like bleach?

      This mask can definitely be used for that application please just ensure you select the correct filters for you job. I would suggest looking at the 3M 6006 to see if that meets your needs.

    I use 3m "Worktunes" hearing protection headphones. Will both fit well together?

      The full face does not cover the ears, so it should work, but because the full face juts out some, it may not create a flush seal for the 3M worktunes.

    Is this mask recommended for welding and cutting applications in an industrial setting?

      It can if you use the 3M 7093 in conjunction. However, keep in mind this full face mask does not have an auto darkening filter/lens option.

    Can I wear prescription glasses under this mask? If not, are there any full face respirator makers that I can wear Rx glasses without having to purchase a separate spectacles kit (getting it filled, inserted seems lot of room for fit issues)? Thank you in advance.

      Unfortunately, if you wear glasses under the mask, it will not create a flush seal which may expose you to toxins outside. Manufacturers currently do not have any full face masks that allow the user to wear glasses without the use of a spectacle kit.

    How often do you change the filter?

      A good rule of thumb to replacing filters: You have difficulty breathing through the filters or you began smelling VOCs (volatile organic compounds) through the mask.
