    I'm looking for a decent respirator, but I'm a bit overwhelmed with the various codes and ratings.

    Can anyone recommend a decent mask and filter combo?

    Ideally I'm just looking at a half mask as I haven't got the money to splash out on a air fed system.

    Is it just for welding or for other uses too?

    The different codes mean suitability for different things - I use ffp3 base filters and add/change modules depending on what I'm doing...

    What are you planning on using it for? welding, painting (what paint), sanding. all ideally require a different filter.

    It will be used for welding and maybe a little painting.
