Respir-X's dust masks meet FDA approval. These standards warrant Respir-X's dust masks in both surgical and non-surgical applications.

Respiratory contaminants can be divided into two basic groups: particles and gases. How you protect yourself depends on which type of hazard it is.
Particles are very tiny pieces of matter. If the particle is dry it is called a dust. If the particle is liquid it is a mist. And if the particle is created by burning material it is known as a fume. Breathing in these particles can clog and irritate you respiratory system.
