IMPORTANT : Single-use respirators against solid and liquid aerosols are classified according to one of three categories – FFP1 NR D, FFP2 NR D and FFP3 NR. Before reading the fallowing information, please check the category to which the respirator belongs – this is indicated on the packaging and on the respirator.

 

APPLICATIONS :  •FFP1 NR D : protection against non-toxic solid and liquid aerosols (e.g. oil-mists) in concentrations up to 4,5 x MAC/OEL/TLV or 4 x APF.  •FFP2 NR D : protection against non-toxic and low-to-average toxicity solid and liquid aerosols (e.g. oil-mists) in concentrations up to 12 x MAC/OEL/TLV or 10 x APF.  •FFP3 NR : protection against non-toxic and low-to-average toxicity and high toxicity solid and liquid aerosols (e.g. oil-mists) in concentrations up to 50 x MAC/OEL/TLV or 20 x APF.

 

FITTING INSTRICTUONS :  1.Hold the respirator in hand with the nosepiece at your fingertips. Allow headbands to hang freely below hand.  2.Cup the respirator firmly against your face with the nosepiece on the bridge of your nose.  3.Stretch and pull the lower headband over the head and position below your ears. Stretch and pull the top headband on the back of your head above your ears.  4.Respirators with adjustable headbands only: while maintaining the position of the respirator, adjust tension by pulling tab of each headband. (Tension may be decreased by pushing out the back of the buckle)  5.Press soft nosepiece to conform snugly around the nose.  6.(a) To test fit for respirator without exhalation valve : cup both hands over the respirator and inhale sharply. A negative pressure should be felt inside respirator. If air flows around your nose, tighten the nosepiece. If air leaks around the edges, reposition the headband for better fit.  7.Change respirator immediately if breathing becomes difficult or respirator becomes damaged or distorted, or a proper face fit can not be maintained. Careful observance of these instructions is an important step in safe respirator use.
