  • Hello, hoping you can provide some insight into a filter on my dads old army gas mask, its a S10 gas mask and the filter is  a round black canister and has GD 21.5.79 PR 245 A RTC/EXP. on the underside there are 2 circles, one has GD BD and the other has GD KS

    Is this filter safe?

      Loading editor
    • yes

    • Thank you, looks like the same filter found on the S6 MKII thst I've seen pictures off and the haversack the s10 was in was for an S6 MKII and with the date 21.05.79 I assumed that was the expiry date so thats what concerned me as the S10 didn't come out until the 80's I believe.

    • Filters are still safe even after the expiration date

  • Some time ago i bought on E-bay a Gp-5 original military gas mask with his original filter. On the filter there are 1-91-33 And BKF Is it a safe filter to use? Thank you for your time and for help

    • No. Every soviet filter have asbestos in it

    • You sure? I asked with the guy who sold it to me. He said that this filter was made during 90’s so it won’t contain asbestos in it. I couldn’t find anything about that BKF filter on internet, so if you are sure I will not use it. If you want I can send to you a pic of the filter

  • So, just a question, are the filters for the Yugoslavian M-1 gas mask safe? Because my brother wore one for like 10 minutes and I want to know if it has anything super bad in it.

    • It's right within the period that asbestos was in use, which puts it at risk.

      Unlikely to cause immediate harm if you've used it, but if you still have concerns, speak to your healthcare professional.

    • Thank you! I’ll tell my brother that.

    • High likelyhood of asbestos contents. 

      Contact your healthcare provider if you are concerned regarding exposure to asbestos.

  • So, i've recently bought a Polish MC-1 Mask that came with a sealed (completely, even had the tape on the covers) MS-4 filter made in '92. Do you happen to know anything about MS-4's, if this one (i know they're not safe, but this one is a '92) is safe by any chance? Thanks in advance.

    • Hi, I’ve got your message and will reply shortly - I’m away from my PC at the moment (and didn’t want you to feel that I am ignoring you)

    • Of course. Take your time, i'm not in a rush. Just answer back when you are.

        Loading editor
    • Right, as to your question.

      I don't know a whole lot about the MS-4 specifically, but I would recommend that you air on the side of caution and avoid wearing or using the filter as I can't say for certain one way or another.

      It's towards the end of when filters commonly used asbestos or other notably dangerous chemicals to filter, but I can't guarantee that it wasn't made with them.

    • Alright, so i'll just leave it sealed and here just for collectability. Thanks for answering. If you someday know for certain, be sure to let me know. Again, thanks for the answer!

  • Hi. I’ve just bought a Russian gas mask for my son (touring Russia) and I’m not sure if the filter is safe. As I have to take it back to Australia I want to make sure it’s not prohibited because of asbestos and also that it’s safe for him to use. The can is green and has this writing:

    EO-1-08-01

    4-89-921

    • As a general rule of thought, avoid soviet filters like the plague, a lot of them have been confirmed to contain asbestos. My recommendation is to buy a modern GOST filter (russian 40mm thread, FP-5 filters are also good) or just using the mask without the filter.

    • Great thanks. I will just take the mask home then and leave the filter. Many thanks.

  • I just bought a gas mask yesterday and the only thing I could find about it that it's probably german but theres no writing on the mask and the filter, just some numbers and I need to know if it's dangerous to breath trough it beacuse I've heard that some filters contain asbestos. And if you can recognize tell me what kind of gas mask is it. Oh and also if I shake it it makes a noise like it has a bunch of particles inside. Thank you for reading I hope you reply!

  • You analize the gp5 filter,and its safe to use?

  • I was wondering why the Gp-5 article is semi-protected and thus not editable for me. There was a bit of information that did not seem to be correct in the article.

      Loading editor
    • The GP-5 article was protected due to a series of bad faith edits back and forth. To prevent further bad faith edits, we opted to protect the article against editing from new and unregistered users.



      As you have mentioned this, I will re-evalute the need for the article to be protected.

      If you have any information you would like to contribute immediately, please let me know and I will edit the page.

    • It has a picture of the "black GP-5" or the ShMP variant. In the overview, it says the mask is made of white rubber, but does not mention that a black variant of the GP-5 exists (the ShMP). I know this kind of information is minor, tedious, and of debatable usefulness but I bring this up because it might help people who buy the GP-5 online and are confused when they read up an article that appears to imply that GP-5's were solely white. I was thinking that at least informing those who are curious about the variants of the mask will be helpful and increase clarification of the information. After all, how can you tell the whole story of the GP-5 without including some of the variants.
