The soul behind 3M Science.

When lives are at stake, it’s not a quest for new compounds but the desire to protect human bonds that drive 3M Science. Providing world-class safety products is as much a reality as it is a necessity. We dig deeper, reach further, and push the boundaries of possibility—providing workers with more comfort, breathability, functionality, style, and of course, the peace of mind they so rightly deserve.

Being focused on much more than safety is what ultimately ensures 3M workers make it home to their families-each and every night.

And to us, having this mindset – this soul – is the value of science in its most purest form.

3M™ Gas And Vapour Cartridges

At 3M™ we don’t take breathing lightly. On the contrary, 3M science enables workers to breathe 25% easier. Our gas and vapour cartridges efficiently absorb hazardous organic vapour with unrestricted air flow, allowing your workers to breathe easier on the job so their families can breathe easier at home.

More than safety:

  • 25% easier to breathe through
  • Greater comfort and breathability
  • Absorbs contaminants to efficiently filter the air you breathe
