Particle penetration through dust masks and facepiece respirators. Test material was NaCl, flow rate 85 l/min and values shown are mean, unless noted otherwise. Panel A: Dust masks. Results shown are the mean and most and least efficient of 7 commercially available dust masks, as purchased in home improvement/hardware stores [225]. Panel B. N95 respirators. (Circle) Results from 6 3M Engineered nanoparticles and particulate respirators [http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/mediawebserver?mwsId=66666UuZjcFSLXTtN8T_NXM2EVuQEcuZgVs6EVs6E666666--]. (Square) Results from n = 2 [226]. (Triangle) Results from n = 1 at face velocity of 8.6 cm/sec [210]. (Diamond) Results from n = 5 [227]. (Hexagon) Results from n = 1 [212]. Panel C. N95 respirators at two flow rates. Results from n = 2 [226]. Panel D. N99 respirators. Results from n = 2 [212]. Panel E. FFP2 respirators. Results from n = 2 [228]. Panel F. FFP3 respirators. (Circle) Results from n = 1 [228]. (Square) Results from n = 1, with graphite at a face velocity of 9.6 cm/sec, flow rate not reported [211]. (Triangle) Results from n = 1, with graphite at a face velocity of 5.3 cm/sec, flow rate not reported [211]. Panel G. FFP3 respirators. (Circle) Results from n = 1, with graphite at face velocity of 5.3 cm/sec, flow rate not reported [217]. (Square) Results from n = 1, with titania at face velocity of 5.3 cm/sec, flow rate not reported [217]. Panel H. P100 respirators. (Square) Results from n = 2 with silver particles [229]. (Triangle) Results from n = 2 with NaCl [229]. (Circle) Results from n = 2 with NaCl [228].
