Respiratory protection is a significant concern for welders due to the release of fumes and gases as part of the process. In addition to the metal fumes and toxic gases, welding hazards include burns and radiation from the flame/arc, molten metal splashes, sparks and heated surfaces. The 3M 8514 welding respirator provides lightweight, effective and comfortable respiratory protection in applications like welding, soldering and other operations where metal fumes may be present. The 8514 respirator is also compatible with other 3M personal safety products, e.g. eyewear and earplugs.
The lightweight, disposable N95 particulate respirator is designed to help provide respiratory protection for certain non oil particles in applications such as welding, soldering and other operations in which metal fumes may be present. 3M uses a variety of innovative technologies and features to help you meet your respiratory protection and comfort needs. The specially designed cake resistant filter media provides longer respirator life. The respirator incorporates 3M's proprietary technology with advanced electrostatically charged microfiber filter media, designed for ease of breathing.
The 3M™ Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve helps release warm and moist exhaled breath from inside the respirator. These combined features, along with the foam face seal and fully adjustable straps are designed to help enhance user comfort and increase wearability:
