The 3M Rugged Comfort 6500 Series Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator is designed to help promote comfort, durability, and stability with a firm, lightly textured silicone faceseal and strong body construction.
The 3M 6500 Series is compatible with a wide variety of 3M respirator cartridges and filters to make a NIOSH-approved respirator and help protect your workforce from certain particulates, gases, and vapors. When used with 3M respirator filters and cartridges, this respirator may help provide respiratory protection at concentrations up to ten times the OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL). This half-face respirator is also compatible with the 3M Versaflo TR-600 and TR-800 powered air purifying systems (not approved with Dual Airline supplied air systems).
The 3M Respirator Selection Guide (3M.com/respiratorselector) may be used to help you select the proper respirators, cartridges, and filters for your work environment. Change your employee's 3M particulate filters anytime they are dirty, damaged, or difficult to breathe through. For gas/vapor cartridges, use the 3M Service Life software (3M.com/sls) to develop a cartridge changeout schedule.
