Founded in 1902 as Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company, 3M grew from humble beginnings to a Fortune 500 company, thanks to their commitment to constant innovation and consistent quality.
The 3M face mask line builds on that tremendous legacy of innovation. 3M respirator masks feature patented Cool Flow Exhalation Valves, allowing wearers to breathe more comfortably. They also feature head loops and an M-nose clip for ideal fit and comfort.
A securely-worn cloth, paper, or fiber face mask has been shown to reduce the spread of airborne bacterial and viral infections by blocking the respiratory droplets and aerosolized particles that might carry viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants when the wearer coughs, sneezes, or talks.
3M masks are made from a specialized process called “melt blowing.” This creates an inner protective layer that acts as a powerful filter, allowing air molecules to pass through but not larger particles. The distinctive “ducks bill” design of the 3M full face mask offers the maximum level of comfort and flexibility, without compromising the fit of the mask.
Every 3M respirator mask is rated N95 by NIOSH, an American standard for personal protective equipment that certifies the mask to filter out 95% of all airborne non-sticky particulates.
This means that, when properly worn, a 3M N95 mask protects not only the people around the wearer, but also provides significant protection to the user as well. 3M N95 respirator masks are the gold standard for personal protection in medical, industrial, educational, and front-line and emergency service industries.
Properly worn 3M N95 face masks fit more tightly around the face than a standard medical mask, forming a tight, suction-like seal around both the mouth and the nose.
The 3M N95 medical mask exploded in popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the few ways consumers could protect themselves in circumstances where social distancing was difficult or impossible.
Every 3M N95 mask in stock undergoes extensive testing and is certified by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Many 3M N95 surgical masks have also been cleared with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We make that documentation available to our customers upon request.
3M masks are meant to be worn once and then disposed of. Follow the manufacturer’s usage instructions carefully for optimal protection.
