Special Instructions for 3M Mercury Vapor or Chlorine Gas Cartridge
3M™ Mercury Vapor Cartridges (6009 and 60929) are equipped with passive 3M™ End of Service
Life Indicators (ESLI). The color change indicator must be readily visible when wearing the
respirator without manipulation. If you cannot readily see the ESLI, do not use. The mercury vapor
cartridges must be discarded when the ESLI changes to the discard color found on the mercury
vapor cartridge label; or within 30 days of opening packaging; or when ESLI becomes dirty or
damaged; or when odors of vapors or gases become noticeable, whichever occurs first. Mercury
vapor has no odor.
