Product Information:

This classic disposable N95 particulate respirator is designed to help provide comfortable, reliable worker respiratory protection against certain non-oil based particles. The respirator incorporates 3M's proprietary technology with advanced electrostatically charged microfiber filter media. It's adjustable nose clip and cushioning nose foam help provide a custom fit with secure seal and reduces potential for eye wear fogging. These comfort features, along with the welded strap attachment and lightweight construction promote greater worker acceptance and may help increase wear time.

Authentic 8210 respirators feature:
- Classic disposable N95 particulate respirator
- Welded strap attachment
- Cushioning nose foam
- Adjustable nose clip helps provide a custom fit and secure seal

N95 filters are required to filter at least 95% of airborne particles. They are not resistant to oil.

The popular 8210 respirator is popular target of China counterfeiters. Working with 3M's anti-counterfeit products team, police found 18 locations where the phony masks were being produced, stored or sold. In recent raid on counterfeiters, police confiscated about 900,000 counterfeit 3M masks. Not only can counterfeit masks fail to perform as expected, counterfeit masks can cause allergic reactions.
