Scott, Why not call the company and ask their technical service people?
While Kerik's suggestion is a good one, if the one you have provides
protection, I am sure they will let you know.

I did a search on the OSHA site or NITSA, don't recall for sure, a short
while back. There was an extensive research area that spelled out what mask
did what. I didn't have a need to look up Formaldehyde, but I am sure it is
there. I try and look through the browser history and favorites to see if
there is anything good for you. I think I found it by googling fume
mask,OSHA standards.
