How long do they last for?1 answer
These cartridges contain activated charcoal. They are intended to ‘Absorb’ certain types of organic vapors and gases from the air as it is drawn through. Like a sponge, the cartridge can only absorb so much in total. When you start to smell or taste the contaminant, it is time to change to a new set of cartridges. There is no specific time when this will happen, and it depends on what the cartridge has been exposed to.
It is good practice to store your mask in a zip top bag. The cartridges can minimally absorb stuff out of the air, potentially shortening their life.
Will this protect me from tobacco vapors, and if no, do you have a filter that will?1 answer
The 3M 6006 multi-gas vapor cartridge will absorb virtually all of the chemical vapors generated by the typical cigarette. However, the smoke particle will pass through unhindered. Adding a P100 (HEPA) filter to this cartridge offers more complete protection. Please check out the 3M 60926 filter/cartridge combination on our site.
