Sylprotec offers a wide range of disposable respirators for respiratory protection. Several models are available on the market and to choose right one must identify the type of contaminants in the work environment as well as the type of environment. Indeed, not all respirators will protect one from, for example, organic vapours. It is also not recommended to use a disposable respirator in an oxygen deprived environment or one displaying less than 19% oxygen.

Of course, it is important to know how to fit your respirator. We offer a fit test service because an adjusted mask means a protection form up to 10 times a permitted exposure limit set by the CNESST or any other government regulation applicable. Exposure limits are specific to each contaminant and must not exceed the limits beyond which workers could die.

Designations N, R or P are assigned according to the degree of resistance to oily particles:

  • N for not resistant to oil particles
  • R for resistant oily particles, a shift of 8 hours
  • P permissible to oil, unaffected by oily particles for their entire service life

Hereon, numbers such as 95 or 100 represent the respirator’s performance in percentage against a 0.3 micron particle. Let’s take a N95 disposable respirator for example: it is not resistant to oily particles and capture 95% of the particles in the air which pass through the filter.

Some models have exhalation valves or simply are of different shapes. Exhalation valves improve the wearing of respirators with safety eyewear because it avoids the fogging of glasses. Those which may feature folded borders such as the R9211 model are convenient since they fit in the pocket between uses.

You now just have to try one of our many models:
