Newmarket ON – 2014 Claudio Dente, President of Dentec Safety Specialists, is happy to announce that Dentec has purchased the US Safety respirator operation from MCR Safety as of March 7, 2014. Mr. Dente said, “the Comfort-Air® and Comfort-Ease™ products have unique designs that will provide our customers with a reason to reconsider their half mask and full face mask needs going forward”.

In addition, the Diskit filter is a pancake style cartridge that is available with a patented sparkshield for the welder. All Comfort-Air® cartridges also feature a unique space plenum between the filtering material and the inhalation port for lower breathing resistance and longer cartridge life.  The patented Saf-Twist cartridge connecting system allows the cartridge to mounted on the facepiece in three different positions.  This allows our respirator to be used with other PPE such as faceshields and welding helmets.

Judy Dente, Vice President, stated, “this kind of innovation is appreciated by customers and makes a buying decision easy for them and for us”. MCR Safety and Dentec Safety will work together to ensure a seamless transition and uninterrupted service.
