These Military Surplus M40 Gas Masks were issued and used in training exercises. They have been cleaned and inspected for operation and are in excellent condition.
This face piece has been NIOSH-approved with the 3M™ Cartridge FR-C2A1 or 3M™ Cartridge FR-64 for acid gases (including chlorine), CN, CS, and P100 particulate filter. The FR-C2A1 cartridge meets military specifications MIL-C-51560 and EA-C-1704. The FR-M40 Full Facepiece Respirator has the capability to mount a single FR-C2A1 DIN threaded cartridge on either the right or left side.
This mask comes with several unique design features suited for first responders. The silicone allows for excellent fit testing results and maximum comfort while the optional butyl rubber second skin protects the face piece increasing respirator life and decreasing decontamination costs. An optional butyl coated nylon hood is available that covers the head and neck and is easily donned to add additional protection against chemical agents and meets MIL-SPEC-C-51251. An integral drinking device permits the user to replenish fluids without having to remove the mask. A dual eyepiece format permits the respirator to easily interface with optics and to fold for storage.
We will include a green carrying case, one sealed 40mm cartridge and a butyl rubber second skin along with the mask.
