Care & Maintenance

Welding Safety

Some 3M equipment requires regular checks and maintenance to ensure optimum performance and protection for the wearer.

In addition to potentially reducing protection levels, poor maintenance can also reduce the effective lifetime of equipment, resulting in the additional cost of replacement.

Guidance on the appropriate checks is provided in the instruction booklet with each new item or system. Care and Maintenance Packs make this information accessible on a day to day basis and provide a strong, visual reminder.
