Respiratory protection for USP-lasers
Superfine smoke and Aerosol arise as a byproduct of laser material processing. Especially with ultrashort pulsed lasers particles with a typical dimension between 1 μm and 0,03 μm is created. The main absorption of these nano particles takes place in the respiratory system.
Particles with a diameter of <1 μm are able to penetrate the lung and accumulate there. In order to take care of the health of the employees involved, respiratory protection is of vital importance among personal protective equipment. It is recommended to use masks with P3 or P2 protection rating. The offered uvex respiratory protection masks are FFP3 rated. Due to their ergonomic design with an inclined nose section they are especially suited for the combination with the F14/R14 frames from laservision. After use or whenever needed only the filter part of the mask system needs to be replaced. The frame is designed for multiple use.
