The CM-6M tactical gas mask must be stored in a dark, cool, and dust-free place, free from sudden temperature changes. The storage room should be ventilated regularly. Temperatures may vary between 10°C and 25°C, with a relative humidity of up to 65%.
Note that full-face gas masks must not be exposed to radiant heat or sunshine. Furthermore, fuels, solvents, lubricants, and other inflammable substances–including chemicals–must not be stored with masks. And above all, there must not be any electrical machines or appliances that produce sparks or discharges during operation (ozone creation).
When storing the CM-6M, avoid deformation of the rubber parts of the facepiece and internal CBRN gas mask.
Each NBC-77 SOF gas mask filter is sealed in a plastic bag by the manufacturer. Store the filters unopened in a clean place at an even temperature, ideally at -5 to +30°C, with relative humidity below 80%. Sealed filters also tolerate conditions of -30 to +50°C and RH below 95%. The storage period (month and year) for filters is marked on the filter label. Do not try to regenerate the filters. Never clean the filters with compressed air or compressed water.
Store the drop-leg pouch in a dark, cool, and dust-free place that is ventilated regularly and without sudden temperature changes. Temperatures may vary between 10°C and 25°C, with relative humidity up to 65%. Stored products may not be exposed to radiant heat or sunshine. Fuels, solvents, lubricants, and other inflammable substances may not be stored with the masks, as well as any electric machines or appliances producing electric sparks or discharges during operation (ozone creation).
Avoid deformations of rubber parts of the facepiece and internal mask when storing. Inspect regularly to ensure effective sealing.
Potassium iodide tablets should be stored at 20-25°C (68-77°F), dry and with foil intact.
