What's the difference between dust mask and particulate respirator?

particulate respirator


The disposable dust masks are broken down into FFP1 dust masks, FFP2 dust masks, FFP3 dust 

masks. The dust masks are only designed to filter out dust and should not be used to 

safeguard the wearer in an oxygen deficient atmosphere of where harmful gasses and vapours 

are present.


FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3 dust masks can reduce the amount of dust you breathe by factors of 4, 10 

and 20 respectively and if you’re working in an environment of heavy dust or where there’s 

the possibility of spores (such as places with dry and / or wet rot) you should always 

choose the FFP3 dust mask.


Dust masks are generally disposable as well, and the wearer should be encouraged to change 

them regularly, during and between tasks as they quickly become contaminated and clogs by 

dust particles.
