3M 6000 Fullface Respirators : WILL THIS MASK BE GOOD FOR CHLORINE GAS?

2 posts in this topic

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?
