Force8™ Half Mask with Typhoon™ Valve comes supplied with twin cartridge A1P2 filters in a hang bag.
For health and safety during airbrushing or spray-painting, any liquid or particles atomised in the air should not be going down into your lungs - especially solvent-based paints, but even if the paint is water-based and non-toxic. These masks fit comfortably and are affordably-priced so there is no reason to take unnecessary risks with your health while painting.

- Durable thermoplastic rubber offering a superior fit to most face shapes comfortably

Replacing the filters:
Replacement twin cartridge A1P2 filters are available. Replace the filters periodically. If you start to smell the odour of the paint or it becomes difficult to draw air through the filter, then it is time to replace your cartridges. Preferably replace them before this occurs to ensure you are fully protected.
This short video shows how to fit the filters correctly. The video states the masks come attached as delivered, but please note that our stock is delivered with the face mask and filters separate so you will need to fit the filters as directed the first time.
When installing the filters to your mask, please note that the filters do require a reasonable amount of force to be applied to rotate them into the “locked” position. This is to ensure that the gasket between the filters and the mask body is well compressed and therefore sealing the interface efficiently. When carrying out this operation, just take care not to grip the exhaust valve body inside the mask. However, you may hold the overall mask body with the required force to rotate the filters into the “locked” position. Do not twist both filters at the same time.
