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