Here is a good safety tool when working with certain Special FX materials.
The 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Cartridge is NIOSH approved for a wide variety of organic vapors. Each cartridge contains granulated charcoal that is treated to absorb organic vapors from the air that passes through the cartridge as you inhale. It is used mainly to protect against solvents, such as those in oil based paints. Other organic vapors it absorbs would include paint thinner, lacquer thinner, turpentine, acetone, and fuel vapors.
The 6001 Organic Vapor Cartridge will fit the 6000 series half mask. When you put on the mask, with cartridges attached, you should not smell or taste the solvents. When you start to smell it, then it is time to change the cartridges. Whenever possible, work in a well ventilated area to help avoid solvent contact with your eyes as an added precaution.
It is also important to remember that if you are going to be spraying any of these organic solvents a prefilter needs to be used in conjunction with the 6001 cartridge. For paint spray and pesticide applications, use with a prefilter such as 5N11 and filter retainer 501 to hold them.
