Activated charcoal masks

From: Cyndie Lack <cyndielack>
Date: Sunday, September 3, 2000
Comfortable activated charcoal masks called "Carbosorb Plus" masks
were previously available from a British company (Charcoal Cloth
Limited) which appears to have now gone out of business.  Many
British restorers may be familiar with this product, which was
useful when working with "nuisance" levels of solvent vapours (of
relatively low toxicity, such as mineral spirits) for extended
periods of time.  Activated charcoal masks are available from many
other companies such as 3M, but are typically hard form (not
soft-sided) and uncomfortable, having an abrasive feeling against
the skin. I would like to find a supplier of a comfortable
activated charcoal mask, if anyone can help.
