    I’m looking for advice on what respirator I should be using when handling liquid polyurethane ( eg. Easycast), addition cure silicone rubber (eg. mold star), and epoxy resin.

    I’m currently using this with I believe P2 filters: https://www.bunnings.com.au/protector-respirator-kit_p5822368.

    I guess these would be considered vapours/gas? I’m a little lost looking for info online. Thanks!

    You will probably find that relevant industry bodies can offer you this type of advice.

    Cheers

    I wouldn’t be asking on a business forum, I would be going to the people who manufacture the polyurethane and ask them. Here you will get guess’s or personal opinion.

    The manufacturer of the products you’re using has a requirement to provide a safety data spec and it should be available either on the product or from where you bought them (usually online as well).

    I use the same type of mask a lot and you can get the filters separately…P2 sounds a little light on for the fumes off what you’re using imo. That could be mitigated a bit if you’re operating in a well ventilated area or using extractor fans.

    Your looking for SDS’s Safety Data Sheets…they’re available on the pages I’ve linked.
