Are the included cartridges labeled for paint and pesticides?
I see they they are P100, but it is just for the particulates and makes them good for situations with oil in the air. For pesticides, you should have the filter and some type of organic vapor cartridge as well. Does it have an organic vapor cartridge or just a P100 filter? Thanks
GME-P100 is a combination cartridge with NIOSH approvals for use against
Organic Vapors, Acid Gases, Ammonia and Methylamines, Formaldehyde,
Hydrogen Fluoride and P100 (99.97% efficient against 0.3 micron particulates).
This Cartridge is effective against chemicals found in most cleaning agents.
This type of filter exceeds the EPA’s recommended minimum filter efficiency
(95%) to minimize exposure to mold spores. These cartridges are ok for use with pesticides.
