Emergency & Pandemic Preparedness
The 3M 1870+ particulate respirator is personal protective equipment (PPE) that is primarily intended to protect health care workers by reducing exposure to harmful airborne particles that are small enough to be inhaled, typically particles less than 100 microns in size. These include airborne particles that may contain biological material, e. g., Bacillus anthracis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, mold, and the viruses that cause Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and influenza.
It has a tri-fold cup design also called a new fish-type mask that allows a user to breathe while wearing the mask. The design also makes it easy to remove the mask when needed.
These respirators help reduce exposures to certain airborne contaminants. Before use, the wearer must read and understand the User Instructions provided as a part of the product packaging. In the U.S., a written respiratory protection program must be implemented meeting all the requirements of OSHA 1910.134 including training, fit testing, and medical evaluation.
Do Not Use For
- DO NOT use in industrial settings.
- DO NOT use for gases or vapors (i. e. Anesthetic gases such as isoflurane or vapors from sterilants such as glutaraldehyde.)

FIT-CHECK THE FACE-SEAL AS FOLLOWS:
. Place both hands over the respirator do not disturb the position of the respirator.
. Inhale sharply (a negative pressure should be felt inside the respirator).
. If you detect air leaks, readjust the head straps and/or the nosepiece.
- It is recommended that fit testing be conducted before assigning a respirator to an individual. If you cannot achieve a proper fit then do not enter the contaminated area. See your supervisor.
- Inspect the respirator before each use to ensure it is in good working condition. Examine all the respirator parts for signs of damage including the two straps, nose clip, nose foam, and staples.

- The respirator is designed for occupational/professional use by adults who are properly trained in its use and limitations. The respirator is not designed to be used by children.
- Individuals with a compromised respiratory system, such as asthma
or emphysema, should consult a physician and complete a medical evaluation before use.

What they're saying
The N95 masks overall have a great fit and are pretty comfortable to wear for long hours at a time.
3M1870 is out of stock for a long time after the epidemic. When we noticed it was in stock, we ordered one box. Got it in one week.
The N95 masks that I ordered came in good shape and work as they should. They feel pretty sturdy and are different from other N95 masks I’ve used.
