What does a P100 filter protect you from?

P100 filters are strongly oil-resistant, which means they can protect against all types of solid and liquid particles in the atmosphere and can be used (but degrade faster in) atmospheres with oil-based particles.

Does P100 protect against ozone?

The 3M 2097 P100 (HEPA) Particulate Filter with Nuisance Level Organic Vapor Relief and Ozone Protection. Use this filter for protection against toxic dusts, such as lead and asbestos, and for mold cleanup and remediation.

How long can you use a P100 cartridge?

6 months
o The P100 filters used with Elastomeric Respirators lifespan is dependent on manufacturer but is typically at least 6 months. This increases long term capacity during a pandemic to provide PPE to providers.
