MSA Advantage 290 Elastomeric half-mask respirator provides healthcare professionals a secure protection solution. The Advantage 290 enables user protection up to P100 level which is above N95 requirements. It is also a solution for source control which is achieved by eliminating an exhalation valve, thereby providing filtration of exhaled breath. Elastomeric respirators are a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative over filtering facepiece respirators such as N95.

Note: The Advantage 290 is approved for use with Advantage style particulate filter cartridges only. It is not approved for use with flexi, chemical or combination cartridges.
