3M™ Speedglas™ Auto-Darkening Welding Filters


The key to remember with Speedglas Auto-Darkening Welding Filters (or ADFs) is consistency.                          Speedglas

Speedglas Welding Filters also eliminate the neck-strain of “shield flipping” while greatly increasing the accuracy of electrode placement. This, in turn, reduces the need for grinding and rework.

In addition, welders can get into tight spaces with their eye and face protection already in place. Their constant, clear view makes even extremely awkward welds a lot easier.


Meets or exceeds all applicable safety standards/approvals

Conforms to European Standard EN 379 for eye protection for welders, as well as other national (USA, Canadian, Australian) and international standards.

How Speedglas ADF's work

Each Speedglas Auto-Darkening welding filter is a laminate of seven different layers: a UV/IR filter, three polarizers and three liquid crystal elements. The UV/IR filter continually blocks harmful radiation, whether the filter cassette is ON, OFF, light or dark.

The level of protection from the UV/IR filter is constant; it equals a shade 13 traditional (non-auto-darkening) welding filter.
