Respirator

Question

Can I mix-and-match different brands of cartridges and respirators?

Answer

Only same brand cartridges and filters can be used with the respirator. Do not cross brand any parts of the respirator. Respirators will not provide respiratory protection if parts are of a different brand. Interchanging different brand parts is against OSHA regulations and illegal.
