Disposable Respirators Market: Introduction

  • A respirator is a type of personal protective equipment (PPE) that is worn on the face. It covers the mouth and nose. Some respirators also cover the eyes and face.
  • The respirator forms a tight seal against the skin. It filters out some airborne particles.
  • Likewise, a disposable respirator fits over the mouth and nose. It removes very small particles from the user's breath. These particles include germs (such as bacteria, mold, and viruses) and other kinds of dust. A disposable respirator does not have any replacement parts. It is intended to be thrown away after use.
  • A disposable respirator has been certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to assure it can eliminate very small particles. Disposable respirators have the name NIOSH and a label like N95 on them.
  • A disposable respirator that is worn correctly removes 90% or more particles in the air
  • Respirators are segregated into three different groups: R-series, P-series, and N-series. Each of the three groups has three different efficiency possibilities 95, 99, and 100.
  • N-Series: N-Series respirators do not provide resistance to oil; therefore, N-series respirators provide protection against liquid and solid particles that do not contain oil.
  • R-Series: R-Series respirators are resistant against oil and they provide protection against both liquid and solid particles that may contain oil. However, these respirators are only certified for up to 8 hours of service life.
  • P-Series: P-Series respirators are similar to R-series; they provide protection against both liquid and solid particles. The service life of P-series respirators is substantially longer than R-series respirators.
