  • 3m 2091
  • 3m 2097 particulate filter

3M™ P100 Particulate Filters fit 3M™ 6000 Series and 7500 Series facepieces.

  • P100 filters don’t gum up with saw dust
  • P100 for fine particulates, 3M 2091. And of course vapor cartridges 3M 502.

My suggestion is to buy a single mask. You can buy an organic vapour cartridge and use a P100 “pancake filter” on the outside of that. The pancake will filter out the fine particulate, while the organic vapour will protect you from the vapour.

Yep, to re-state (since I like repeating things) the particulate filter (e.g. the 2097 for P100 rating) for standard woodworking (dust), and the 6001 organic vapor cartridge for finishing. An adapter would let you use the 2097 on top of the 6001 Respirator Cartridges Filters
