The 9X series of MSA gas and combination filters are in full compliance with the REACH regulation and do not include any toxic materials listed in the European Regulation.
Limitation of use: filters for respiratory protection may be used everywhere, except for some inherent limitation e.g. containers or confined spaces. Principally, the following conditions must be known:
- Type, property and composition of contaminant
- Oxygen content of the inhalation air must be sufficient [> 17 vol.-%]
- Local or national restrictions or conditions should be observed
For all gases and vapors which may be present in combination with particles [dust, smokes, mist, spray] a combined filter [protection from gases and particles] must be used.
The filter recommendations are based on pure substances. With mixtures, by-products, or decomposition products, the impurities must be taken into account.
For compounds with a boiling point below 65°C, AX Filters must be used.
If the above list mentions a particle filter [e.g. A–P2] for a specific substance, particles are commonly found with the gas or vapor.
