How to choose a welding helmet
The right choice of welding shield affects the efficiency of the welder, helps to avoid retinal burns and other damage. The filters used in modern welding shields are coated with a special coating that protects welders from ultraviolet and infrared rays, and also protects against scratches, cracks and abrasion.

According to the type of dimming, protective equipment is divided into:

Traditional inexpensive helmets with a lifting light filter. The filter is raised to check the quality of the seam, and to return to welding, it is lowered manually or with just a nod of the head.

Price of welding masks Chameleon and other auto-darkening products are higher than traditional masks. But they are convenient in that the worker does not have to set fire to the arc at random, since the light filter darkens only after it is lit. The proximity of other ongoing welding operations also affects the degree of obscuration.
