I have a 3 m 6900 and am painting what cartridge do I need?
Paint Spray Cartridges 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Cartridge To be used with 3M 6000 and 7000 Series Half Face and Full Face Respirators with bayonet attachments. The very popular 6001 Organic Vapor Cartridge is ideal for spraying. The 6001 is NIOSH approved for certain organic vapors. Will be fine for this mask. You will also need the 3M 5N11 Particulate Filter, N95 our part # mmm-5N11 and the retainer rings part # mmm-501.
I need a full mask like this but can you wear glasses under it ok?
Not really. The mask seals around your face, so I don't think it would work.
The fullface mask is great. I used it to paint the interior of lockers on my boat. There were a few occasions where I needed my glasses to remove items from inside the lockers that were fastened in place. You can do it for a short period of time but it makes the mask leak outside air and defeats the mask's effectiveness. Maybe 3M has a device like they use in scuba masks to hold eye glasses?

Can this mask safely be used to spray Interlux perfection? Can't justify the expense of a forced supply mask.
I like the mask. It fits well and has protected me while dry sanding Micron Extra every spring, but I have not used it during the application with roller and tipping. Bill
Thanks, yes, I'll spray outside!
Interlux? Can you be more specific on what job you will be using this mask for? I work for the motion picture industry and we spray all kinds of materials, works fine for me and protects my eyes and face great! Only problem I've had is sometimes I have to wipe the face of the mask to see fur to HIGH over spray.
I have no experience with Interlux Perfection. I do use this mask to shoot the original Awlgrip paints. I do the painting outside so there is less concentration of VOC's in the air. Best advice is to be careful. Maybe you can rent a forced flow mask.
How to size the 3m 6000 full face respirator?ThanksJerry

Jerry, I cannot remember how I sized the mask. I'm large@ 225 lbs. and if 3M had sizing guidelines, I would have followed them. I am sure they do for the thousands they sell for OHSA compliance. I wish mine had more face volume to accommodate glasses.Excellent productWard G
Fred,Which size do you use? which model?Jerry
I don't know Joe to size it. I already had a half face respirator that fit me so I ordered the same size for the full face. It fir fine, even with wearing my glasses inside.
The 3M respirator has rubber straps that have quick release buckles. In other words, one size nearly fits all. I wear glasses, a bushy beard, and my hair in a ponytail and still find a way to easily take the mask on and off. I fit the mask to my face with the straps loosened. While holding the mask with one hand, I tighten the head and chin straps until snug. Removing the mask reverses this process. Holding the mask, I loosen the quick release buckles enough to lift the mask from my face, being careful not to break my glasses in the process. Note: the retainers for the filters sometimes fall off during mask mounting and removal. This is one product improvement that 3M should consider Wearing the mask for extended periods is not a problem for me. Breathing is very normal, filtration is excellent, visibility is superb, and the feeling of claustrophobia is nonexistent.
can I wear glasses with this?

A heavy frame would be a problem for two reasons. One, the rim of shield would put pressure on the frame arms and put a possible point pressure on the sides of your head. Second, a tight seal around the shield would be broken negating the respirator protection. If the shield is to be used as a direct line particle protector as when grinding or wire brushing, then the respirator is being used as a face shield and small frame glasses like the Flex Frame could be used.

No. Glasses may fit inside the mask, as mine do, but the earpieces break the seal so the respirator lets unfiltered air in. Best respirator I've used, though.
No they will get in the way of the seal. I use contact lens while using mask
Not really the seal goes right down the putter cheek. You will not get an airtight seal unless u have flexible temples on your glasses.
It is a great mask, but you can not wear glasses in it. It makes a seal around the outline of your face pressing right against your temples.
Well, I'm able to wear my glasses under the 6000 fullface respirator, although adjusting the straps to keep pressure off the bridge of my nose is a bit fiddly. If I'm doing the sort of work where the respirator is on and off me a lot, I usually resort to my half-face mask. -David
CAN YOU TELL ME THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDIUM AND LARGE ?
My 3M 6898 mask doesn't have a size designation that I can see. The head straps are completely adjustable so head size should not be an issue. I wear a Large size crash helmet for my motorbike, and this mask fits me perfectly. In fact it is amazingly effective with noxious paint fumes. I really like it.
I wasn't sure what size I needed and got the medium. It fits perfectly'Im 6' 190 lbs
WILL THIS MASK BE GOOD FOR CHLORINE GAS?
With the proper filter and adjustment of the mask? Certainly. If you are working in an environment that contains more gas than breathable oxygen then I would recommend going to a full respiration system like one used by professional automotive painters.
Be careful with chlorine gas...no Earth born organism can survive in a chlorine enviroment. I do not have experience nor do I have filter elements to use with chlorine gas. I have protection from organic compounds mostly paint solvents. If 3M makes a filter for chlorine the mask will work just fine. Very effective at vapor control. BUT WATCH THE LEVEL OF CONCENTRATION OF CHLORINE. Also do you have an escape plan if the mask is knocked off accidently? Have you considered forced fresh air systems?
I am in the process of removing all of the rotted balsa wood on the port and starboard side of my boat. So I had to do a lot of sawing and grinding to do so. The full face mask I bought saved me a lot of itching eyes. Probably more.
Very comfortable and provides excellent protection. Wish I had bought one years ago. Easy to seal yourself off from dust and fumes. Use mine for bottom work and now don't get any dust lines on my face from wearing separate eye shield and dust mask while sanding. Nice to have easily replaceable dust filters and I do recommend the replaceable lens covers though I don't see them listed in the Jamestown catalog. Also takes care of fumes from epoxy and bottom paint. I bought the medium size and have no issues with fit.
Fits like a glove and is really easy to put on and take off. Like a previous reviewer said, I wish I'd got one of these years ago. It's recommended you buy a pack of the disposable face protector shields if you'll be using it to spray paints.
What a product!!!
Well...if you've ever sanded the bottom of a boat and used the simple goggles, and the little mask...then I'm sure your eyes felt as good as mine. YIKES. It was brutal. This mask is awesome. I sanded for nearly 4 hours no fogging, no leaking. My eyes were clean, and it was a pleasure to sand (the iPod helped too). This is the way to go. Great visibility, protection, and comfort. I can't wait to sand again next year (OK that's a stretch, but it was great)

Very good if you don't need glasses
I use it to sand and fiberglassing epoxi composite boats, but it becomes almost useless to me because I need to use glasses, and the arms of it causes air leakeage around the mask vedation, and the nose piece is too large to accomodate the glasses. I think that this limitation must be better displayed on the product especification. Excepting by that, it's a very good mask.

Save your lungs and protect your eyes
My favorite thing to use sanding old bottom paint- keeps the dust and flakes out of my eyes and lungs. The fullface mask does a good job when making sawdust too.
