Do I want to get 60923 or 60926 cartridges for VOC filtering? They both claim to filter organic compounds. I have the 60923 that came with my current mask that I use for typical spray painting from a can and they seem to work well.

These are the ones I used. I also have pre-filters on them as well. That helps them last longer.

The ones you linked to will definitely work, but I think are an overkill. Those you could probably take into chemical warfare LOL.

Yep, I looked them up and both appear they should work fine. I just happen to work for 3M and can fairly easily get to product documentation.
