What kind of respirator do you use for spray painting?
A supplied-air respirator is the preferred respirator for use when spray painting. The head or face pieces for supplied-air respirators come in several types including half or full face masks, hoods, and loose fitting face pieces. Cartridge APRs work well for small jobs if maintained properly.
Should you wear a mask when using spray paint?
Keep your space well ventilated and, as they are low odor and non-toxic, all you need is a paper mask to protect you from inhaling paint particles and dust. Regular solvent-based sprays require a proper anti-fume mask that straps on tightly and covers your nose and mouth.

The commonly known “N-95” filtering facepiece respirator is one type of particulate respirator, often used in hospital to protect against infectious agents.
