3M™ Aura™ 9300+ Series
Particulate Respirators
Description
Standards
The 3M™ Aura™ 9300+ Series Particulate Respirators provide
effective respiratory protection for use in industries where workers
will be exposed to dust particles and/or non-volatile liquid particles.
These products meet the requirements of recently amended
European Standard EN 149:2001 + A1:2009, filtering facepiece
respirators for use against particles. They should be used to protect
the wearer from solid and non-volatile liquid particles only.
• Tested and CE Approved to EN 149:2001+A1:2009
• Foldable, easy to store, proprietary 3-panel design
accommodates facial movement for wearer comfort
• Low breathing resistance filter technology gives effective
filtration with low breathing resistance for consistent high
quality performance
• Sculpted nose panel conforms to the nose and contours of the
face and helps improve compatibility with 3M eyewear
• Innovative chin tab designed for ease of donning and
adjustment to help achieve a comfortable fit
• 3M™ Cool Flow™ exhalation valve offers improved comfort
in hot humid environments and/or where work is hard and
physical*
• Embossed top panel helps reduce fogging of eyewear
• Individual hygienic packaging helps protect the respirator
from contamination before use
• Large, soft nose foam is comfortable on the skin
• Coloured headbands for easy identification: yellow for FFP1,
blue for FFP2 and red for FFP3
Materials
The following materials are used in the production of the 3M™
Aura™ 9300+ Series Particulate Respirators:
• Straps
Polyisoprene
• Staples
Steel
• Nose Foam
Polyurethane
• Nose Clip
Aluminium
• Filter
Polypropylene
• Valve*
Polypropylene
• Valve diaphragm*
Polyisoprene
These products do not contain components made from natural
rubber latex.
Maximum mass of products:
• Unvalved (9310+, 9320+ & 9330+) = 10g
• Valved (9312+, 9322+ & 9332+) = 15g
Products are classified by filtering efficiency and maximum total
inward leakage performance (FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3), also by
usability and clogging resistance.
Performance tests in this standard include filter penetration;
extended exposure (loading) test; flammability; breathing resistance
and total inward leakage. Reusable products are also subjected to
cleaning, storage and mandatory clogging resistance tests
(clogging is optional for non reusable products). A full copy of
EN 149:2001+A1:2009 can be purchased from your national
standards body.
Designations:
R = Reusable
NR = Non reusable (single shift use only)
D = Meets the clogging resistance requirements
Approvals
These products meet the requirements of the European Community
Directive 89/686/EEC (Personal Protective Equipment Directive) and
are thus CE marked.
Certification under Article 10, EC Type-Examination and Article 11, EC
quality control, has been issued for these products by BSI Product
Services, Maylands Avenue, Hemel Hempstead, HP2 4SQ, UK
(Notified Body number 0086).
Applications
These respirators are suitable for use in concentrations of solid and
non-volatile liquid particles up to the following limits:

This selection guide is only an outline designed to focus on products which may be appropriate for typical applications - it should not be used as the only means of selecting a product. Selection of
the most appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) will depend on the particular situation and should be made only by a competent person knowledgeable of the assessed risks, actual working
conditions and limitations of PPE. Details regarding performance and limitations are set out on the product packaging and user information. If in doubt, contact a safety professional or 3M.
For respiratory training and advice please contact your local 3M representative.
Storage and Transportation
Fit Check
The 3M™ Aura™ 9300+ Series Particulate Respirators have a
shelf life of 5 years. End of shelf life is marked on the product
packaging. Before initial use, always check that the product is
within the stated shelf life (use by date). Product should be
stored in clean, dry conditions within the temperature range:
– 20°C to + 25°C with a maximum relative humidity of <80%.
When storing or transporting this product use original packaging
provided.
1. Cover the front of the respirator with both hands being careful
not to disturb the fit of the respirator.
2. (a) UNVALVED respirator - EXHALE sharply;
(b) VALVED respirator - INHALE sharply.
3. If air leaks around the nose, re-adjust the noseclip to
eliminate leakage. Repeat the above fit check.
4. If air leaks at the respirator edges, work the straps back
along the sides of the head to eliminate leakage. Repeat the
above fit check.
Disposal
Contaminated products should be disposed as hazardous waste
in accordance with national regulations.
If you CANNOT achieve a proper fit DO NOT enter the
hazardous area. See your supervisor.
Users should be fit tested in accordance with national requirements.
Fitting Instructions
For information regarding fit testing procedures, please contact 3M.
See Figure 1.

bottom panels to form a cup shape. Bend slightly at centre of
the noseclip.
Ensure both panels are fully unfolded.
Cup respirator in one hand with open side towards face. Take
both straps in other hand. Hold respirator under chin, with
nosepiece up, and pull straps over head.
Locate the upper strap across the crown of the head and
the lower strap below the ears. Straps must not be twisted.
Adjust top and bottom panels for a comfortable fit, ensuring
panels and chin tab are not folded in.
Using both hands, mould noseclip to the shape of the lower
part of the nose to ensure a close fit and good seal. Pinching
the noseclip using only one hand may result in less effective
respirator performance.
The seal of the respirator on the face should be fit-checked
before entering the workplace.

a) Breathing becomes difficult.
b) Dizziness or other distress occurs.
•
•
For suitability and proper use follow local regulations, refer to all information
supplied or contact a safety professional/3M representative.

becomes excessive or at the end of the shift.
•
Never alter, modify or repair this device.
•
Before use, the wearer must be trained in use of the complete product in
accordance with applicable Health and Safety standards/guidance.
•
In case of intended use in explosive atmospheres, contact 3M.
