Mask respirator filters for spray painting

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I hope this is the right section (we use spray paint in modding, isn't it? smile.gif ).

I have a 3M 6200 mask respirator and I need to know: which filters do you use for spray painting? Are 6001cn + 5n11 suitable?
USA filters and european filters have different codes, but I don't care about this (I want to buy USA filters because they're cheaper on web).

I tried to ask to 3M directly (USA and EU), but nobody replied to me. Great support, 3M thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif .

Thanks!!

Let's stop and think about this.

The 6001cn will protect you from organic vapors (the solvents in the spray paint), but not the particulates created when you spray
The 5n11 will protect you from the particulates, but not the organic vapors.

So, using both together would protect you from neither!

You really shouldn't be seeking advice for such matters on a computer overclocking forum. There's little, if any, good advice here.

3M will have a toll free, technical support phone number in Italy. Call then and ask.

6001cn and 5n11 are designed to be stacked, in fact there are bundles with mask+6001cn+5n11+501 (501 is a cover that allows to keep the two filters together).
They are not mutually exclusive. The EU combination should be A2+P2 or something similar (A2 is like the 6001cn and P2 like the 5n11 if I'm not wrong).

I tried to ask in this forum because hobbyists are often well informed about these things (especially those more experienced).

I sent 3 mails about a months ago, but nothing happened. I'll try to contact them by phone, thanks for your suggestion smile.gif.
Anyway, just to say, with Black&Decker not even the call was successful when I was looking for infos about a product (another "great" costumer assistance...).

Thanks for your answer smile.gif

AHhhh. That would work just fine.

As an aside, those mask/cartridge suppliers are used to working with industrial companies that, by law in the USA, must have a written, comprehensive respirator protection program.
If you have more thgat10 employees you can't just put a respirator on one! As such they are loathe to make specific recommendations due to the liability involved, but they are usually willing to bury you in data to help you make a choice.
