    On rubberzone, somebody posted a thread recently about asbestos and gas masks and linked to this article:
    http://www.accc.gov.au/content/index...mItemId/621537

    I've been thinking about buying a gas mask, but this has put me off. Safety first, remember.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi Trackrubbr,
    if you want to use a mask with a filter on it, check the manufacture date of the existing filter. If it is stamped with a date later than 1980 it is highly unlikely to have asbestos in it. If it is dated earlier then it is possible it may have asbestos in it. If it has, then it will be white asbestos which isn't the real dangerous form of the substance, and will only be present in a very small quantity in usually the first particulate layer of the filter, and would have to get past the other filter layers before you could inhale any fibres.
    That said, you would be better not to take any risk and getting a newer filter from either a surplus shop or from somewhere like ebay, where there are often new and sealed british S10 mask filters available at a sensible price.

    Wow, I read that post after I had ordered one of those masks, and before I had received it! I was sweating for a bit, because I know that Customs don't take any prisoners, and it was part of a package with other masks. It all turned out OK, and I received the package intact.

    The filter that came with the black mask is massive! From galleries online, it looks like the same size as a soup can, but is actually about 8 inches high by 6 inches diameter. I can't see any fibrous material exposed in the mask, so they must be concerned about the massive, heavy filter. As far as I know, the small canisters available virtually everywhere are all activated carbon, and contain no asbestos. I strongly suspect that due to the known health dangers and legal liability, the filters containing asbestos were swiftly withdrawn and destroyed, and replaced with the activated carbon type.

    Just wondering how many and what kinds of masks all of the fine people that visit these forums have? In the past six months or so, I have got quite a few, and it now includes:

    • 2 S10s
    • 2 Israeli civilian masks
    • 2 Israeli Army M15 masks
    • US Army M17
    • Canadian C3 or C4 mask
    • 2 Soviet grey PMG masks
    • 2 black GP5s
    • Black Soviet officers mask with front hose and large filter
    • US MCU2P (?)
    • 2 Belgian M51 masks
    • Industrial gas mask with a shaped visor section, like a pair of safety glasses


    I've got one of just about all of the common masks around. Want a Soviet PBF "gorillaface", an S6, a German M65, and heaps others.

    I like my gas masks

    Default Gas Masks Needed for Project!

    Hello

    Recently our supplier of gas masks has run dry and we are curious about purchasing 4-8 or more at a time from a company that can get a constant supply. Our current fetish projects depend on these supplies.

    We seek:
    Israel Style (youth is okay)
    Belgium/French Style

    If anyone knows of a good vendor out there (preferably US based) it would be a appreciated. Surplus vendors are okay.

    If you're a cheapskate, then definately try Ebay. The Israeli civilian and the French masks are very common there, and so are very cheap! As compared to the cost of getting them from a security/armament store, they will be $15 vs $100. If you need lots of them, just buy more in a mass order. It is very unlikely that the surplus market will suffer a shortage of these kinds of masks in the near future!

    Default Modifying Gasmasks?

    Does anyone know what I should use to PAINT my gasmask? I have a Russian GP-5 in grey, and was thinking about some more exotic colours. Maybe red? Purple?

    I just don't know if I can use regular paints like acrylic, or maybe liquid latex. What will stick/adhere to the gasmask?

    Thanks for reading,

    ~twisto
