Insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and pesticides respirator masks
Pesticides are chemical products used as plants and crop protection against parasites, disease, bad weed, insects, etc. "Pesticides" is the global generic term for insecticide, parasiticide, fungicide, and herbicide weed killer products.
Today pesticides are watched closely and subject to several regulations around the world. This allows to bring more safety on applications for the users and for the envrionment. Today the use of a proper protection equipment and respirator masks is even highly recommended in most agrochemicals' user manuals
An A2P3 mask for crop protection products
Users of phytopharmaceutical, agrochemical products or pesticides can be exposed to dusts, particles (from powders or seeds) as well as gases and organic vapors (like carbamates or benzene derivatives) especially during the preparation phase of the application.
An A2 (gas and organic vapors) and P3 (dusts, and particles) combined filter catridge is recommended while using pesticides and agrochemical products. A gas mask with an A2P3 filter offers satisfying protection for using phytosanitary products in large crops.
Depending the the substances and application modes (pulverisation, spraying), a pesticide respirator against agrochemicals inhalation can be a half mask (mouth and nose protection) or a full face mask (mouth, nose, eyes protection) with an A2P3 filter. For longer and difficult works, a powered air purifying respirator with A2P3 filtering cartridges would be a more comfortable solution.
DR DIN40 universal gas mask or dual cartridge respirator
The advantage of single filter gas masks is that they feature a universal DR DIN40 thread connector for filter cartridges. On the other side, dual filter respirators usually offer better field of view and weight balance which is ideal for precision works.
