FFP1 Filtering Half Masks are useful for protecting workers from low level exposure to dust or dirty conditions. P1 class masks effectively filter at least 80% of airborne particles, and have a maximum internal leak rate of 22%.
These masks are ideally suited for shift work in construction, DIY or general maintenance. For example, protection against inhalation of cement, saw dust, stone dust and plaster. They are not suitable for high levels of contamination or for medical roles such as protection against chemical powder, bacteria and viruses.
P1 – protects against low levels of dusts, fumes, water and oil based mists or aerosols in concentrations of up to 4 x WEL.
NR – non reusable. Disposable masks suitable for single shift use only. R – reusable. Can be used for more than one shift and fulfil the 120mg loading test with solids and liquid aerosols. D – these filters have passed the Dolomite clogging test, giving the user better breathing resistance.
