Respirator Recommendations

At concentrations above the NIOSH REL, or where there is no REL, at any detectable concentration:
(APF = 10,000) Any self-contained breathing apparatus that has a full facepiece and is operated in a
pressure-demand or other positive-pressure mode

(APF = 10,000) Any supplied-air respirator that has a full facepiece and is operated in a pressure-
demand or other positive-pressure mode in combination with an auxiliary self-contained positive-
pressure breathing apparatus

Escape:
Escape:
(APF = 50) Any air-purifying, full-facepiece respirator (gas mask) with a chin-style, front- or back-
mounted organic vapor canister having an N100, R100, or P100 filter.
