3M VFlex 9105 Particulate Respirator Details
The 3M 9105 provides 95% filtration efficiency against non-oil based particulate. This is an extremely low-cost disposable respirator with a smart new design. Aside from being a very economical choice, what really sets these respirators apart from the rest is their unique v-shaped pleats. The 3M VFlex breaks the mold for traditional respirators, taking on a new shape that flexes more easily with mouth movements so you can talk freely, without your mask getting in the way. These v-shaped pleats also increase the overall surface area of the VFlex mask, making it a breeze to breathe while wearing your respirator.
Prior to use, the 3M VFlex is a flat-fold mask, which means you can easily carry it in a pocket so you always have your respirator at hand when you need it. The mask is spacious when unfolded, with the v-shaped pleats and an embossed front panel helping the lightweight respirator to keep its shape. Though roomy, the VFlex has only a minimal impact on your field of vision so you can still see clearly while staying protected from airborne particulate. These respirators are compatible with a broad range of protective safety eyewear, as well as with most styles of hearing protection.
These masks are easy to use and comfortable. 3M's proprietary filter media helps make breathing easier, and the unique tabs at each side of the mask make it quicker than ever to position the respirator on your face. The adjustable noseclip allows you to get a customized fit and a secure seal. The clip is also metal-detectable and helps prevent glasses from fogging, too. The elastic headbands contain no natural rubber latex components, and the inner layer of the mask is soft but easy to breathe through. The result is a disposable respirator that is as comfortable and effective as it is clever and inexpensive.
Use 3M VFlex 9105 respirators for maintenance, emergency preparedness, agriculture, mineral processing, food preparation, laboratories, dry chemical handling, bagging, sawing, grinding, sanding, and sweeping. Note: not for use when oil-based particles are present.
3M VFlex respirators are available in two sizes: regular and small. These are the regular sized respirators.

More Information About Respirators
Choosing N-, R-, or P-Series Particulate Respirators
Filter efficiency shows how much filter leakage can be accepted. Higher efficiency means less leakage.
95%, 99%, and 99.97% are the most common filter efficiency ratings.
Used in particulate environments free of oil aerosols. N-series filters cannot be used if oil particles are present.
Used for oil and non-oil particles with time use limitations specified by NIOSH. If oil particles (e.g., lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerine) are present, use an R- or P-series filter.
Used for oil and non-oil particples with time use limitations specified by manufacturer. If oil particles are present and the filter is to be used for more than one work shift, use only a P-series filter.
