The most important safety device for DIY or professional operators removing old paint is a dust and VOC (Volatile Organic Vapor) FACE MASK. These NIOSH-approved P100 VOC face masks prevent harmful fumes and tiny, airborne dust particles from entering your respiratory system. Although effective Speedheater™ Infrared Paint Remover operation does not heat paint to the temperature at which lead fumes are created, scraping even the softened paint can generate some lead dust. Dry scraping lead paint obviously generates a lot of toxic dust.

These special face masks have many other benefits:

  • Protect against exposure to lead, asbestos, cadmium, arsenic, and MDA
  • Capture 99.97% of these particles
  • Are effective for concentrations up to 10 times the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL)
  • Are lightweight and offer a comfortable yet well-sealed fit
  • Provide quick and effortless exchange of cotton replacement filters, which last 160 hours
