Comfort Counts – try it for yourself

Our unique CoolFlow™ valve helps workers stay cool and breathe easily. Try it for free* when you purchase a box of 3M disposable respirators this spring.

The 3M™ CoolFlow™ Valve is designed for comfort. Built into a number of our disposable respirator models, it seals during inhalation but opens to allow hot, humid, exhaled air to escape quickly, preventing an unpleasant build-up of heat inside. To stop the frustrating effect of protective eyewear misting, the valve cover is positioned to direct air downwards and away from the wearer’s face. A CoolFlow valve makes these respirators ideal for longer periods of wear - especially in hot or humid conditions, or for tasks that are physically demanding – helping to keep workers cool, comfortable and breathing easily throughout their shift.

But don’t just take our word for it, experience CoolFlow comfort for yourself! From Monday 3rd February, each box (20 units) of the following best-selling 3M disposable respirators will include a sample of the equivalent valved model free of charge:

  • 3M™ Aura™ 9310+ Flat-Fold FFP1 Unvalved Dust/Mist Respirator
  • 3M™ Aura™ 9320+ Flat-Fold FFP2 Unvalved Dust/Mist Respirator
  • 3M™ 8710 Cup-Shaped FFP1 Unvalved Dust/Mist Respirator
  • 3M™ 8810 Cup-Shaped FFP2 Unvalved Dust/Mist Respirator

Each free sample comes packaged within the box, individually wrapped and easily identifiable. Information on the exterior of the box shows how the valve functions, alongside a QR code. Scan the code with a smartphone or visit to learn more, download the accompanying brochure and watch a video that uses thermographic imaging to demonstrate the valve’s effectiveness.

All orders placed from Monday 3rd February will automatically have promotional stock allocated to them*; there is no need to alter the way you or your customers order these products. Give CoolFlow a try – we think you’ll really feel the benefit.

*Whilst stocks last. Promotion expected to last approximately 6 months. Promotion applies only to products listed in this article.
