Quite a lot, actually, as 3M is one of the leading PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) manufacturer in the world. 3M offers a wide range of products that are used to enhance the protection of people, facilities, and systems. They offer an expansive line of PPE like reusable & disposable respirators, face protection, protective eyewear, hearing protective equipment, accessories to enhance visibility in low-light conditions, and much more.
Here’s some information to reassure that 3M provides the best masks on the market:
From the company’s origins in 1902, the five founders had the same spirit of innovation and collaboration that forms the foundation of 3M today. Scientific and technical innovations produced success over the years, eventually making 3M a regular name on the Fortune 500 list.
Today, more than 60,000 3M products are used in homes, businesses, schools, hospitals, and other industries. One-third of 3M’s sales are from products invented within the past 5-years, thanks to innovations from thousands of researchers and scientists they employ around the world. With corporate operations in 70-countries and sales in 200, 3M is committed to creating the technology and products that advance every company, enhance every home, and improve every life.
There’s a difference between a mask and a respirator, and luckily 3M manufactures an assortment of both. It’s essential to make sure you are taking care of yourself by selecting the proper respiratory PPE.
In a medical setting, masks help protect the sterile field and are designed to protect the patient from the exhaled microorganisms from the healthcare provider. All 3M masks are FDA cleared.
Additionally, 3M respirators meet the CDC Guidelines for Mycobacterium Tuberculosis exposure control. They are certified by NIOSH as N95’s are designed to provide a secure face-to-respirator seal. This seal helps reduce the wear’s exposure to airborne particles, making them appropriate for protection from laser and electrocautery plume.
