RZ offers four distinct mask models to fit almost any task you might have.

+ M1 Neoprene
+ M2 Nylon
+ M2 Mesh *Shown above
+ M2.5 Mesh

Our BPA free, plastic exhalation valves work to let air out but not in. This keeps the inside of the mask cool and dry while closing off for inhaled air. This ensures everything you breath is through the filter for maximum protection. Valves are pointed out and down in order to prevent glass fogging.

+ Asbestos
+ Arsenic
+ Cadmium
+ Lead
+ Silica
+ 4,4-methylene (MDA)
+ Abrasive blasting

The life expectancy of the RZ Filter depends on many variables, such as; particulate exposure density, particulate exposure duration, user breathing rate. With that said; below are our general guidelines:  As the user you will have the final call given your exposure.

+ 20-30 hours of continuous use in heavy dust exposure to Grain bins, Off-road, construction/demolition etc.

+ 30-40 hours of continuous use in light dust exposure to Grain Bins, off-road, construction/demolition etc.

+ 50-60 hours of continuous use when protecting against allergens, pollutants, odors etc.

The lifespan of the Active Carbon in the F1 and F3 filters will depend on what you are using it against and the concentration of the matter in the environment. It is recommended to change the filter if you notice any odors coming through the filter.

It is recommended to store your F1 and F3 filters away from a contaminated area.

To change your RZ Mask filter, gently unscrew the exhalation valves on each side of the mask. This allows the filter to easily detach and be replaced with a new filter. Gently and firmly screw exhalation valves back in place before additional use.

Activated carbon has the ability to absorb almost any type of vapor, organic molecules, solvents, volatiles organic compounds (VOCs), odors, and a very wide variety of chemicals. It also has an extreme ability to catalytically destroy ozone; this is a major component of smog and other air pollution. Activated carbon works well under most temperatures and moisture contents, releasing the attracted moisture to absorb chemicals. This material is inert and safe for use and handling.
