"3M has more than 30 years of experience in developing high performance auto-darkening welding helmets"

3M has launched the Welding Helmet 10 with Auto-Darkening Filter, which provides affordable welding protection for students and recreational welders.

High quality auto-darkening welding helmets are typically too expensive for non-professional welders. Competitively priced for the student or recreational welder, 3M’s newest welding helmet is lightweight and features an auto-darkening filter with three, user-selectable dark shades and two sensitivity levels, providing users with high quality welding protection. 

“3M has more than 30 years of experience in developing high performance auto-darkening welding helmets,” said Kimberly Gates, product marketing, 3M Personal Safety Division. “We’ve taken these insights and used them to address the wide range of welding challenges users face daily. We’ve given welders protection and quality in which they can be confident.”

The Welding Helmet 10 comes with adjustable ratchet headgear and can be paired with 3M disposable respirators, protective eyewear and hearing protection products for added protection.
