I purchased these for my respirator, and I can't thank 3M enough for creating them. I use them for painting (shellac, lacquer, urethane, etc), and stripping of furniture. Although we work in a well ventilated area, there isn't even a hint of chemical smell of any kind when breathing through these, no matter how close to the project I have had to get to see something.

Note: If using sporadically, it is best to put them on, use them for a project, then take them off as soon as you're done and put them in an air tight bag until next use. I heard this will keep them from reacting with the open air, which would cause them to be used up after only a few days.

My friends use these exact cartridges as well, and we all enjoy the product, as well as their pink air filters for sanding dust, drywall dust, working with insulation, etc.

I build model airplanes and use various glues which are irritating to my lungs and nose. Having tried various filters for my 3M respirator, this one works the best. All the filters seem to reduce their effectiveness after about 8 hours of use. I would have them a 5 for effectiveness and 3 for longevity.

My husband purchased respirators for both of us when we got ready to paint the interior of our house. First of all, a respirator is WAY more comfortable to wear than those paper masks. Second, the disposable filters keep all the nasty VOC's out of your lungs. I wouldn't paint without them.

The first time I used it I was grinding metal. (By the way these are for organic NOT GRINDING METAL, you need the pink round ones for that). Turns there was an awsome person in the kitchen making BACON! I LOVE BACON. I worked away till I was done with the project and removed the mask and the bacon smell hit me in the face. Made my day for two reasons, one: there was bacon! Two: they worked great, if I couldn't smell the bacon then they must be easily filtering organic mater.

P.S. You need the P95 Prefilter for the metal shavings the cartridge is for organic matter.

I work on boats for a living and deal with 2-part polyurethane paints and fiberglass all day long. You can't go wrong with 3M.

These fit my old mask (model unknown, sorry) and work like a champ. I've used these while spraying stain on all our cabinets throughout our house. That was a dirty job, but I could breathe with ease. As far as fit goes, do your research.

Since the house is finished, I use this mask while mowing our 7 acre yard. It's really dusty, and I got tired of those flimsy paper masks that don't fit the bridge of my nose and still leave me with dirt encrusted nostrils. Also, my 3m mask doesn't leave my safety glasses fogged up all the time like the paper masks do. You probably think I'm a wimp, but when I mow it kicks up clouds of dust that leave me covered when I'm done. Dry, dry North Texas.

Use these when painting or finishing wood and they work great. Keep my nostrils and throat nice and comfortable.
I use the Pink P100 when welding because these aren't recommended for that but for organics and painting these are "the bomb".

One thing I like is that while they seem to do an excellent job of filtering out "stuff" they still are easy to breathe through so I don't mind wearing them while working and afterward if I'm still in the area where the paint fumes are.

If you go to the trouble of using a filter and cartridge system, you want the protection it promises- keep your cartridges wrapped in a foil pouch when not in use and they will last longer. If you can smell solvents through the cartridge you've waited too long to replace them. These work very well, and the mask they work with is more comfortable than the ones I used before.

These organic vapor cartridges are a must when working with solvent based sprays and paints, and brush cleaning with solvents. I notice no odor when using these with the #M 7500 mask, which is the only way I have of telling they are working. Perhaps 3M could come up with a "wear indicator" to let the user know when to change them.
Breathing through them is effortless.

Definitely impressed by these. Although I love the smell of oil-based paints, I do realize they're not good for you, especially when painting in an enclosed space. Upon wearing these for some serious priming of parts in my basement the other day, I was absolutely amazed that I did not smell anything - anything at all. And no associated headache for that matter.

I also love the fact that I can just switch them out for the cheaper and lighter particle filters when all I need is to avoid dust. A great system and a great product in itself.
