Woodworking can expose your lungs to all sorts of damaging substances.
A lifetime of exposure to even fine sawdust can affect your lungs similar to the way asbestos affects them!
That's not counting any of the exotic tropical hardwoods that evolved poisonous saps and resins to protect themselves from insects. Then, when you add the organic vapors and other chemicals released by curing finishes or epoxies, you can see why it really pays to have a good respirator.
Epoxy artists, and woodworkers who regularly apply finishes in poorly ventilated areas should upgrade to a mask that protects from organic vapors and gasses.
The minimum level of protection in these circumstances is the GVS Elipse High-Performance Gas Mask.
To include eye protection, because some finishes and epoxies are hard on your eyes, choose the Elipse Integra 3/4 Face Mask.
These masks will filter out all dust as well as most of the chemicals you run into as a woodworker.
Please note that there are no refunds or exchanges on masks as they are Personal Protection Items. There is an accurate sizing guide available for your reference - please utilize this information to avoid any issues with your mask. We appreciate your understanding.
