Hi Kerik,

Looking at the respirator, the filter (3M 6001/60928) says rated for organic
vapor/acid gas/P100. I checked 3M's website and they do have a filter
(6001/60925) rated for formaldehyde/organic vapor/P100 that will fit my
respirator. I couldn't find any information whether my filter, being rated
for more dangerous substances, was suitable for use with formaldehyde. Do
you know if it will work or should I get filters listed for formaldehyde?

Best, Scott
