3M offers innovative products and product guidance to help protect welders. 3M has more to offer to welders than any other single-source supplier: prep, personal safety, finishing and continuous end-user technical support.
3M offers a full line of safety products that help protect workers: welding helmets, auto-darkening filters, powered-air purifying respirators, supplied-air systems, eye, head and hearing protection and more. Welders have to be comfortable and properly protected. Of course, it's important to protect yourself against heat, sparks and arc burn. However, metal oxides, metal particles and gases produced in some welding operations may result in serious respiratory hazards.

The lightweight, belt-mounted valves permit the welder to adjust the temperature of the air entering the headpiece +/- 45 degrees, making it ideal for very hot or strenuous jobs.
