3M Company MMM recently introduced a new line of organic vapor respirator cartridges with 3M Service Life Indicator technology. The new cartridges feature an end-of-service-life-indicator (ESLI), which visually gives users information regarding the correct time for replacing the cartridge.
The 3M Service Life Indicator is likely to help protect workers from dangerous airborne organic vapors by helping them with proper cartridge replacement, thus giving users adequate protection. Using a respirator cartridge beyond its service life can prove to be fatal for workers and this new line of cartridge is likely to resolve this issue. In an appropriate environment these cartridges can be changed based on individual work hours, exposure levels and breathing patterns.
3M remains focused on inventing new products and maintaining its competitive advantage worldwide. The diverse portfolio of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) by 3M provides various solutions for protection, safety, monitoring and other active communication equipments. The rise in demand for such innovative 3M product services is likely to augment its overall revenue.

Moving ahead, 3M continues to exploit dynamic growth opportunities in a broad range of sectors with its flexible product lines, ensuring a continually expanding global footprint.
