Dual Cartridge Silicone Full face Mask.-The Full Face Mask should be used when combined respiratory, eye and face protection is needed. Made of soft rubber, it contours to the face and is easily adjustable with five point harness system and five quick release buckles. Comes with a 30" convoluted hose, brass male connector and adjustable belt.
Designed for comfort
Organic Vapor Cartridge. Air purifying respirators with cartridges provide respiratory protection against gases and vapors by using sorbents to purify the inhaled air.
Note: Persons applying QWIK LINE® should insure they comply with local and state respiratory protection regulations.
Polyurethanes are produced by reacting diisocyanates with polyols and other chemicals. MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) is one type of diisocyanate used in the manufacture of polyurethanes. MDI or polymeric MDI (pMDI) is one component used in the application of polyurethane or polyurea coatings. Special handling and care is needed when spraying these lining products. When using a polyurethane "system," the MDI is usually the "A-side" or the "iso-side" of the system. The polyol (also called resin) is usually the B-side of the polyurethane system. Contact with excessive amounts of polymeric MDI can be harmful to your health. When MDI is sprayed, you may be overexposed by breathing high airborne concentrations of MDI, getting MDI on your skin or in your eyes, and swallowing MDI. If MDI is inhaled, it can cause irritation to the nose and lungs. If inhaled over a period of time, a person may feel tightness in the chest and have difficulty breathing. Continued over exposure may cause the body to become sensitized (or allergic) to MDI, which means even very low levels of MDI can cause serious health effects, including asthma attacks. Immediate medical attention is needed if this occurs.
Wear personal protective equipment to avoid over exposure from MDI. When cleaning application equipment, it is recommended that such personal protective equipment (PPE) as safety glasses or splash goggles, MDI-resistant chemical gloves, long-sleeve coveralls and safety boots be worn. Additional protection is needed when spraying. Personal protective equipment, such as splash goggles, MDI-resistant long-sleeve coveralls or full body suits with a hood, and MDI-resistant fitted boots and booties, will help protect from exposure. Respiratory protection, in the form of an approved supplied air respirator (as outlined in most companys Respiratory Protection Program) is also recommended.
To further minimize exposure to MDI, appropriate ventilation, combined with a properly designed spray enclosure, is needed. The use of a ventilated enclosure helps to contain spray mists and vapors that develop during the application process. Further, exhaust filters and stacks help to capture the spray mists, which reduce the potential for exposure to those outside the building. It is recommended that a preventative maintenance program for the ventilation system be established to ensure that all of the components of the system (filters, airflow, etc.) are maintained properly. A material should not be sprayed until the ventilation system is operating properly and the appropriate amount of personal protective equipment is worn.
