The respirator will indicate on the package it is safe for painting (vapors). Make sure it states this. The respirator (3M) comes in a sealed zip-lock bag. Store in bag sealed tight when not in use to preserve the charcoal filters.

Use a dust mask for the sanding. I use them for sanding walls in my house. I pay about $1.25 each for the 3M and it has a small exhaust valve (better than no valve, lol).

Good luck

Yes that is an acceptable dust mask. The larger one is a respirator designed to block out vapors, etc.

i dont think this will work for sanding metal and paint, it is for wood i think, and it does not work against paint and stuff, i was looking at the package
