Brushing/sanding paint

Particular caution must be taken when brushing or sanding coats of paint on wooden surfaces as many paints (especially those that are older) contain hazardous materials such as copper, chrome and arsenic. If there is any uncertainty about the type of paint being used, it would be advisable to err on the side of caution and wear an FFP3 respirator (only respirators in this protection class offer sufficient protection against carcinogenic particles such as chrome). If you are certain that the paint contains no hazardous materials, choose a protection class FFP2 respirator (although a respirator in protection class FFP3 would be more suitable if dealing with hardwood which requires sanding and therefore presents risk of exposure to wood dust).  You can find product suggestions for FFP2 respirators below. Please ensure all appropriate and requisite personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn, for example safety goggles and hearing protection as offered by uvex.

The suggested products listed below carry general, non-specific recommendations. For a detailed product analysis, please refer to our guide to help choose the right mask for your requirements: Basic knowledge/correct choice

Please do not hesitate to contact your relevant professional association should you have any queries or questions.
