Default filters

good idea to keep the filters in a sealed zip lock bag when the mask isn't on your face . keeps the carbon from being activated/working for free

supplied-air respirator don't need no filters. Use one for any toxic environment.

even the off gassing from "intestinal distress" won't be noticed.

Is that listed on the specs?

Like to see the feds try to make that zero VOC.

Is there any good method to avoid killing millions of brain cells when using this stuff? It did work awesome tho.
cappaint,

Are you really running a painting business without having basic knowledge of trade safety standards? If so, I would highly suggest that you get proper training before continuing, for your safety, and for the safety of others.

If you're an employee, it is your right to demand and recieve proper PPE(personal protective equipment) from your employer.

Also helps keep the interior of the mask cleaner so you don't inhale a bunch of garbage when you put it on after digging it out of some supply bin or off a hook in your rig.

Thanks CApainter, that is a good point. Respirators are supposed to be fit tested as well.

a dust mask is used to block particles, a respirator is used to protect your respitory system

While some of the above posts read a little harsh they all bring up the valid points that you seem to be learning as you go. I always push for proper training because imo without it the end results is watering down the skilled trade.

I brushed oil paint on an interior yesterday and honestly did not smell a thing, I could not imagine feeling the effects on an exterior.

Wear a properly fitted respirator and make safe ladder moves.

Yeah I put it together right before the shot actually. Speaking of which, I should use it more than I do. Always kick myself when I don't and then feel hungover in the morning.
