Title: Decontamination Methods for 3M N95 Respirators

3M is working to quickly evaluate other decontamination methods on 3M respirator fit and filtration performance, such as Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide, UV, Low Temperature Moist Heat, amongst others, as reflected in the CDC guidance on Crisis Standards of Care Decontamination Recommendations. Other methods of decontamination are being discussed in public forums, including liquid chemical decontamination, ozone, and time-based methods but 3M is not prioritizing investigation of these methods at this time. 3M remains committed to providing data to the health care community as soon as possible. Considering the many variables involved in the process, decontamination of FFRs in the US should follow all requirements of the current EUA issued for each specific decontamination method.
