Charcoal respirator-no. My paint dealer says they are. Worst person to ask is a salesman. They are safe if you have a way to measure the iso's-you don't. Is safe for bodyshops with downdraft paint booths and a regular change schedule. Gemplers catalog sales has always said their masks were safe except for isos. They changed that for about one issue of the catalog, said they were safe, then went back to saying no. HOWEVER some "claim" they are safe if they used one time and thrown away. The only way a charcoal mask can come close to being safe is if it is brand new and fits perfectly. That makes it more or less pass the new thing, but none of them fit perfectly. And if they are safe, you have to buy one a day. Since it takes me several days to paint a stripped tractor, they would cost more than the paint. I don't believe any are safe, even if the manufacturer says so, its only sales talk and has not been proven. There is no way to tell.
