The specially designed Sundström Safety APP as well as the breathing protection resource guide (”PRG”) may be used to supplement general industrial hygiene knowledge. After identification of workplace contaminants and their concentrations, the purpose of the PRG is to enable the wearer to choose the suitable Sundström Safety mask. As actual conditions may vary on different worksites, it is emphasized that the PRG is only a guide and entails no commitment.
Finding the most suitable breathing protection products will depend on the situation at hand and will require a person who is knowledgeable about both working conditions and relevant properties and limitations of the actual breathing protection products.
In case of uncertainty about the selection and operation of the equipment, the work supervisor shall be consulted or the relevant sales outlet. Alternatively, please contact the Technical Service Department of Sundström Safety AB, contact info found on website www.srsafety.com.
Use of a mask must be part of a respiratory protection program.
For advice see Standard EN 529:2005.
WARNING Correctly chosen and used respirators may reduce inhalation of certain airborne contaminants but will not exclude them totally. Please observe that misuse of respirators may cause overexposure to contaminants and result in sickness or death. Consequently, appropriate respirator selection, training, operation and maintenance are mandatory for proper protection for the wearer. These respirators may only be used for the specific chemical compounds for which they have been approved and recommended.
General use instructions
General use limitations
CAS-No: Chemical abstract service registry number
IDLH: Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health
PPM: Parts Per Million (parts of contaminant per million parts of air)
Odor thresholds should not be used as the primary indicator for changing gas and vapor filters, instead filter change schedules based on objective data. Odor thresholds can be useful as a secondary indicator for filter change-out.
Sundström Safety recommended respirator is for exposure levels not exceeding concentrations such as the IDLH. When a gas filter mask is recommended, a filter change schedule must be established. The recommendations are for single substance. In case when two or more substances are present, a combination filter may be appropriate.
When using a spray paint that contains solvents, a mask consisting of a gas filter and a particle filter may be appropriate.
Sundström Safety´s compressed air fed breathing protection are to protect users working with contaminants that have poor warning properties, or cannot be absorbed in a gas filter, as well as with particularly toxic contaminants.
