  • EN 149:2001+A1:2009 Standard

    3M™ Disposable Respirators meet the requirements of European Standard EN 149:2001 + A1:2009, filtering facepiece respirators for use against solid and non-volatile liquid particles only. Products are classified by filtering efficiency and maximum total inward leakage performance (FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3), also by usability and clogging resistance.

    Performance tests in this standard include:

    • filter penetration and extended exposure (loading) test - evaluates the filtration performance when new and over time
    • breathing resistance - evaluates the ease of breathing (inhalation and exhalation) through the respirator
    • total inward leakage - evaluates the filter penetration, valve leakage (if fitted) and importantly the face seal leakage of the respirator when worn by a panel of different people whilst conducting simulated work exercises
    • clogging resistance - evaluates the ability of the respirator to continue to function effectively and provide respiratory protection in very high dust environments

    Reusable products are also subjected to a cleaning cycle (specified by the manufacturer) and 24 hour storage to confirm the product performance is not affected by re-use. Clogging resistance testing is a mandatory requirement for reusable products, but is optional for single shift use only (non reusable) products. A full copy of EN 149:2001+A1:2009 can be purchased from your national standards body.

    Marking designations:
    R = Reusable
    NR = Non reusable (single shift use only)
    D = Meets the clogging resistance requirements
