Phenolic / Micarta Safety Equipment

Recommended Posts

When working with canvas, linen. or paper micarta scales, what are the basic precautions I need to take? I am having difficulty figuring out a basic standard on the internet.

Currently I use a 3m half mask with a P100 2091 filter. I also wear wrap around safety goggles, but they are not sealed.

That should be fine for genuine micarta.  The fine dust is a respiratory irritant, but that's about it.  The P100 filter is all you really need.  It's a bit different with homemade stuff that isn't really phenolic based.  That might make you want a cartridge rated for organic vapors.
