Note the MSDS data sheet on the paint you plan to use. Compare it to the respirator performance. There are common chemicals in a lot of the paints we use that ARE NOT filtered by a run of the mill respirator...
My comment was in the context of a dusty environment from using a scotchbrite wheel for deburring (the topic of this discussion)
Protection from paint is a totally different discussion and yes the mask I posted a photo of, if used with charcoal paint filters would not be appropriate for all
I have spent many hours on the breathing end of a forced air respirator system so I know that a painting respirator is not appropriate for all paints (particularly any that contain isocyninates)
