3M™ Corded Foam Earplugs seal the earcanal with soft, polyurethane foam for noise reduction and reliable hearing protection. The tapered earplugs are easy to roll down and fit and are engineered for all-day comfort. Soft, hypoallergenic polyurethane foam and a tapered design help provide a comfortable noise-reducing seal in the earcanal. The smooth, dirt-resistant surface helps keep the earplugs clean for good hygiene.
These soft polyurethane foam earplugs have a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 29 dB and are test compatible with the 3M™ E-A-Rfit™ Validation System.
Not only is noise present in our daily routines and recreational activities, but millions of Americans work in hazardous noise on a daily basis. Estimates from the National Institutes of Health suggest that hearing loss afflicts 28 million Americans. About one third of those cases are at least partially attributable to noise. Hearing loss due to noise is almost entirely preventable by judicious use of hearing protection.
*The NRR may overestimate the hearing protection provided during typical use. 3M recommends reducing the NRR by 50% for estimating the amount of noise reduction provided.
