    Hi
    Looking to pick up a few masks for a crappy ceiling pull down job. Looked at these. Any one used them. Are they any good

    Would then use for tiling use. Cutting boards, grinding floors etc.
    Thanks

    Not sure how well that would seal to the face, also I think p3 is needed for us not p2

    I wasn't sure what p2 was or p3. So its a classification?

    P2 is for general dust etc, p3 is the better protection ( asbestos )

    Also you need to make sure you have a good seal around the mask

    I use that jsp force 8 but it’s getting a bit tired now, taking it on and off all day isn’t ideal. Do you use them for 1 day impish then throw them away? Would you trust that for heavy dust ?

    No, just nuisance dust. They aren't the easiest to breathe in for a length of time. Good for a quick dry cut, or mix though.
    I bought an M rated vac recently so that sucks up most dust from everything now.

    THe main hazard for us daily is mixing adhesive and grinding porcelain, even with a sponge on the grinder it’s still air bourne. If you mix adhesive on a sunny day with no wind you can see the cloud and it’s pretty immense

    Your not wrong local, outside yesterday, no wind, ardex white. Just plumes of white dust, takes a while to settle.
    I've opted for the jsp force. Thanks for the info fellas.

    Based on this thread and the very good reviews on screwfix I have just brought a force 8 and like many of the reviews say I wish I had brought one years ago. It feels so weird having a mask on and not breathing back my own hot damp air or altering my breathing cause I am forcing it through a piece of paper, with this you don't even know its on - breathing wise. just under £18 on offer at Toolstation.
