Particulate protection half mask


The Force Typhoon 8 is a NIOSH-approved particulate protection half mask manufactured with lightweight durable thermoplastic rubber. It offers protection against airborne particulates, is resistant to oils, and meets the Respirator APF 10 requirements in OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1153. The PressToCheck P100 filter system provides daily face fit check reassurance, enabling users to perform an easy seal check each time the mask is worn. To fit the mask, simply press both filter covers together to stop air from entering, then complete a seal check by inhaling sharply while looking up, down, left and right.
