The 3M VFlex Particulate Respirator is part of 3M's Classic range of disposable respirators.
It is suitable for working environments where Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) for dusts and mists is required for short duration or light duty tasks and also when RPE is frequently replaced.
Anja Buchan, product manager for 3M Disposable and Reusable Respiratory Products, explained: "Disposable respirators have become integral to many working environments where investment in reusable respirators may not be cost effective or where employers do not want to maintain RPE.
"The embossed front panel allows the respirator to hold itself away from the mouth, while the V-shaped pleats flex and expand so wearers can breathe, work and talk more easily.
It's also our most affordable FFP2 disposable respirator yet." The 3M VFlex Particulate Respirator is available in two sizes to accommodate a wide range of face shapes.
