3M 6000 Repirator
The 6000 Series is not a typical high-maintenance respirator because it can be disassembled, cleaned and reused many times. Its also not a typical reusable respirator because it has no parts to replace (except filters). Lightweight, cost effective, comfortable and reusable are a few of the advantages of this respirator. NIOSH/MSHA approved. Contains natural latex which may cause allergic reactions in some individuals.
