     Avon Protection Systems, Inc. - Our History
     Avon Rubber p.l.c, our UK parent company, has manufactured
     high-performance rubber products since 1885.

     Established in Wiltshire, England, Avon Rubber (trading as
     AVON on the London Stock Exchange) is a worldwide provider
     of superior respiratory protection, dairy and defense industry
     products.

      In response to its award of the JSGPM program by the US
      Department of Defense, Avon divested of the automotive,
      aerosol gaskets and product mixing business units to focus
      primarily on the Respiratory Protection and Dairy products.

       Warnings, Cautions & Notes
       WARNING
       WARNING User’s safety depends on properly sized and fitted mask assembly.

       Before putting on and adjusting mask assembly, users shall remove all hairpins,
       combs, hair knots, buns, or braids that will interfere with mask assembly seal.
       Users must be clean-shaven to prevent mask assembly leaks.

       DO NOT wear contact lenses (soft or hard) while wearing CB Protective Masks.
       Inadequate oxygen supply to the corneal surface, exposure to dust, dirt, and
       smoke/gas may cause serious vision loss or eye damage. Users requiring vision
       correction are provided optical inserts for their protective masks.

        NOTE
       Masks are to be cleaned as often as is required. However, MASK MUST BE
       CLEANED AND SANITIZED BEFORE TRANSFERRING TO ANOTHER USER.

       Initial sizing and fitting should only be accomplished by trained personnel and is
       conducted without the hood installed.

  Sizing Procedures w/Sizing Gauge
   Note: It maybe more convenient to size and fit using a sizing set consisting of 1 of
   each size C50. Once correct size is determined, a new mask can be issued

  1. Place the gauge to the face diagonally along
     the line from the point of the chin to the widest
     point of the cheekbone.
  2. Read the size of the mask where it touches
     the cheekbone.
  3. If between two sizes pick the larger size
  4. Have the user don the selected mask, and
     assist in correctly tightening the straps

 Sizing Procedures w/Sizing Gauge Cont.
 Note: ensure the your eyes are at the same level as the users.

  1. Using the eye locator on the gauge, locate
     the bottom edge of the guide on the rubber
     lip at the bottom of the eye lens. Locate the
     “Top of Lens” mark with the top of the eye
     lens.
  2. If the pupils are within the “correct size”
     zone the mask is properly sized.
  3. If the pupils are in the “too small” zone,
     select a larger mask. Repeat the last three
     steps.
  4. If the pupils are in the “too big” zone, select
     a smaller mask. Repeat the last three steps.

  Alternate Sizing Procedures
      1. Visually assess the size of the user and select the
         most likely size mask
      2. Have the wearer hold the selected size mask on their
         face with the chin positively located in the
         chip cup
      3. Pull the head harness over the head and tighten the
         cheek, brow and temple straps
      4. Check to see that the center of the pupils is slightly
         above the centerline of the visor
      5. If the eyes appear to be too high, the mask is too
         small; if they are too low, the mask is too big

  Alternate Sizing Procedures
         1. The mask should make firm contact with the face
            around the entire perimeter of the facepiece
         2. The distance between the edge of the mask and the
            lobe of the ear is typically in the range of
            .5 to 1.5 inches
         3. If the distance is less, then the mask is probably too
            large and gaps at the forehead and chin may
            be observed
         4. If the distance is greater, then the mask is too small
            and may appear to be perched on the face
         5. Remove the initial mask and issue the warfighter the
            selected mask size

         3. Install optical correction if required
         4. AVON recommends that canteen caps be changed to
             the Avon canteen cap at this time.

           tested.

         • Before either of the tests begin, the mask must be set up
           properly.

  Fit and Leak Test Theories
          • Just because a mask is worn does not mean that the user is
            breathing clean air. If the mask is donned improperly or it is not
            functioning correctly, articles can enter the mask through various leak
            paths.

          • When a leak exists within the mask system, the user is not properly
            protected.

          • These tests ensure that the user is wearing the mask properly and
            that the mask is functioning properly.

          • Mask fit testing is performed by sampling the air inside the mask and
            comparing this to the amount of particles contained in the air outside
            the mask.
