Otherwise known as N95 respirators and KN95 masks, these masks are designed to protect the wearer with a filter barrier over their nose and mouth. The two strap design ensures maximum comfort while wearing your mask and is available across both types. What sets the 8210 plus version apart from the conventional 3M 8210 design is the addition of fabric straps that have been shown to feel more comfortable while wearing your mask.

How to wear 3M 8210 mask?
The 3M 8210 mask is not a reusable face mask and must be disposed of responsibly after use. Like surgical face masks used by healthcare professionals, they are for single use only and cannot be washed and reused. Ideally, the mask should not be worn for longer than 8 hours but ensure you check the manufacturer’s instructions to verify how long the filter will remain active in various scenarios to ensure you are wearing your mask for the correct amount of time. If the mask becomes moist then you must change your mask as soon as possible, disposing of the moist mask with the rest of your trash.
When disposing of any face mask, ensure that you place your used masks directly into the trash and keep your trash area clear of overflow. Germs may be present on the outside of the mask after you have taken it off and to ensure that any dangerous germs are contained, the mask should be thoroughly disposed of with the rest of your trash. Ensure that you wash and sanitise your hands once you have disposed of used face masks also.
It is vitally important that all wearers strictly adhere to the manufacturer’s instructions when wearing your 3M 8210 mask or you risk the mask not functioning as it was designed. This may result in your respiration remaining unprotected while you have the mask on, and you may find yourself vulnerable to inhaling dangerous airborne particulates. The 3M range of protective masks have multiple uses, including for use when working with materials like fibreglass.
All face masks should be as tight-fitting as possible while still remaining comfortable to wear. When the mask has been applied to the face, it should cover the entire area around the nose and mouth, and it should rest snuggly against the flesh of your face. The 3M 8210 mask requires a complete and tight fit to work effectively and given this requirement you may find that this type of respiratory protection is not the best choice for individuals with facial air or for very young children. They are offered as a generic adult size which may also be too large for children to wear effectively.
The 3M 8210 mask was originally designed to offer bulk protection against airborne particulates and the design includes a highly effective filter responsible for the safe filtering of particles while the wearer is breathing through it. This is to ensure that the air which enters your body is drawn entirely through the filtration layers and is therefore cleaner and safer than if you were not wearing a mouth mask. Due to its design and the necessity of breathing through the filter, some people have found the mask difficult to adjust to. It may increase the energy required for normal breathing, feeling unnatural and uncomfortable.
One why of adjusting to the filtration layers and the general look and feel of your protective face mask is to slowly introduce how it feels to wear and breathe through before you wear it for long periods of intensive use outdoors. Wearing the mask for short periods of time initially will help you become used to the feeling of the mask as it sits on your face, and of the regular act of breathing while you’re wearing it. Do not continue to wear your 3M 8210 mask if you are experiencing difficulty with your respiration or if you are experienced heavily laboured breathing. Ensure that you consult a medical professional, such as your personal doctor, as soon as possible if you are experiencing shortness of breath or acute respiratory distress.
