Improves efficiency, reliability and safety
Clear and reliable communications are critical to success in most military operations. To be
able to communicate whilst at the same time being protected from harmful noise levels is a vital
necessity, both for exercises and actual combat situations. Noise levels are often so high that they
can cause immediate and permanent damage to the hearing if protection is not worn. At the same
time, communication is of prime and vital importance. Orders and information must be heard and
understood, both via radio and directly person to person.
Mission Essential Products
Peltor™ and E-A-R™ provide the appropriate equipment regardless your mission.
From the Classic™ earplug for optimum attenuation and best comfort, to complex communication systems
adapted for army, navy and airforce.

3M™ Peltor™ E-A-R™
Military Solutions
Sharpens your senses when
it matters most…
Soldier´s senses must be sharp to enable successful operations. Hearing is just as critical as vision, both in
darkness and daylight. He or she must be able to hear incoming radio signals without the risk of revealing the
actual location. A snapping twig or a whispered message must be heard and located. The communication over
the radio must be unhindered, even in deafening combat situations.
All these are situations where hearing is critical to success. In combat, on a reconnaissance mission or at your
post, Peltor™ communication products sharpens your hearing.
Peltor™ Standard System, a communication standard
Peltor™ standard systems use the same connectors and adjustments to PTT buttons and
adapters and are used for all headsets, facilitating usage and ensuring safer communications
by reducing the use of product specific solutions. You can chose a personal headset for your
individual situation and specific task, and yet be able to easily and quickly connect to other
communications systems, should the need arise.
Peltor™ adapters are equipped with an audio input via standard J11 jacks, which means that
our complete range of standard headsets can be used without any adaptation. The outgoing
cord is equipped with jacks for communication radios or telephones, fitting most currently
now on the market.
E-A-R™, hearing protection all over the world
E-A-R manufactures a complete line of hearing protection for anyone who spends time in
noisy environments. Over 30 years ago E-A-R introduced the yellow foam earplug, which
established brand new standards in protection and comfort. Today this earplug continue to be
the most widely recognised product in hearing protection all over the world.

Choosing the correct hearing protection is paramount to a successful

protection and offer a choice, for example a foam earplug, a banded
will not suit all workers and you are more likely to get some workers not
hearing protector and an earmuff, compliance will improve. Ownership
wearing their hearing protection.
and participation will strengthen implementation.
Disposable Foam Earplugs
Roll down earplugs, made from expandable slow-recovery foam, provide
the best combination of comfort and protection for most users. One size
fits most. Once in the ear, foam plugs expand to provide a snug and secure
custom fit. E-A-R™ offers a wide range of disposable earplugs, from the
famous yellow 3M™ E-A-R™ Classic™ earplug through to sophisticated
shaped options such as the E-A-R™ soft Grippers.
Passive Earmuffs
Peltor™ Earmuffs consist of rigid cups with soft plastic cushions that seal
around the ears to block noise.
They are a popular choice in hearing protection due to their ease of use
and ability to effortlessly check that workers are wearing their hearing
protection. They are available in headband, neckband, helmet-attachable
and folding models to meet virtually every application need and wearer
preference.
Pod Plugs
Pod earplugs are so easy to use they practically insert themselves. There
is no roll needed, just use the soft flexible grip to push the earplug into
position and achieve excellent protection. Because you do not have to
touch the foam during fitting it is one of the most hygienic types of earplug
available. Take a look at the disposable 3M™ E-A-R™ Push-In™ earplug
or for a reusable option try out the 3M™ E-A-R™ Express™ earplug.
Reusable Pre-moulded Earplugs
Premolded plugs are made from flexible materials that are preformed to
fit the ear. They are generally available with a joining cord to prevent loss.
These reusable earplugs are comfortable, hygienic and economical. No
sizing is required for these patented, pre-moulded, triple flange earplugs.
Available in a variety of styles and protection levels.
Semi-aurel
Banded hearing protectors and easy to use, convenient and extremely
comfortable. They are quick to put on and off and to store around the neck
when not required making them ideal for intermittent use. They are so
easy to fit, it’s very difficult to fit these products incorrectly so you ca be
confident that your workers are receiving the right level of protection. Most
models are available with spare pods making them an economical option.

Communication Earmuffs
Peltor™ communication earmuffs make it possible for users of hearing
protectors to communicate very effectively with their immediate
environment and with people further away. Communication with people
around you involves our active-volume function and intercom systems.
For longer distances, you have communication radios, DECT and mobile
phones. All communication options can also be combined with a sound
system such as an FM radio.

3M™ Peltor™ Optime™ I
Passive Hearing Protector
The Peltor™ Optime™ I earmuff has been developed for demanding noisy environments
and muffles even extremely low frequencies to a maximum degree. The sealing rings are
filled with a unique combination of liquid and foam. The result is an optimum seal with
low contact pressure, which provides agreeable comfort even during long-term use. The
sealing rings have ventilation channels and are covered with soft, patterned, hygienic foil.

The Peltor™ Optime™ III earmuff is a high performance hearing protector and has
been developed for use in extremely noisy environments. The protection is based on a
technology with a double casing minimising resonance in the holder casing resulting
in maximum high-frequency attenuation. An acoustic connection between the inner
volume and the volume between the casings in its turn provides maximum lowfrequency attenuation.

3M™ E-A-R™ Combat Arms™
Passive Hearing Protector, single ended
The ISL non linear ear-plug is designed specifically for use by military personnel in
active service. The intention is to minimize attenuation at normal noise levels but
provide protection from very high impact noise levels that result from discharges from
small arms and artillery. The attenuation according to the EN 24869-1 test method
(subjective testing as required by EN352).
From this we can calculate the following: H = 9, M = 4, L = 2 SNR = 7
At 110dB the ISL plug reduces the noise level by approximately 8dB, this then rises to
25dB at a peak pressure of 190dB, about the same as we would achieve with a
E-A-R™ Classic™ foam ear-plug.

One of five senses. Two ears for a whole life. And a damaged ear cannot be repaired. Noise in the workplace is the most common cause of hearing impairment.
We can only tolerate a limited daily dosage of noise. How harmful the noise is depends on the exposure time in combination with the sound level. Five minutes of
carelessness during an eight-hour working day could result in impaired hearing for the rest of your life. Full-time wear is therefore the only way to guarantee protection.
Most people are aware of this, but are still careless because they perceive hearing protection as heavy or uncomfortable, or because they can’t hear
what their colleagues are saying.
But how do you convince people to wear hearing protection all the time? Well, just make it easy to wear!

Advanced Optical Engineering by 3M
Advanced Optical Engineering is the true essence of 3M
protective eyewear, taking into consideration design,
protective qualities and comfort.
anti-static and chemical resistance. The DX coating is
continuously being developed and monitored in order to
provide optimum performance.
In 3M’s world, premium is undisputed. Premium Lens
Technology results in optimal optics with unobstructed
field of vision. Premium Lens Technology gives complaintfree wear with less eyestrain. Due to advanced optical
engineering, 3M has developed patented innovative lens
solutions considered impossible by many optical experts.
For example the patented Maxim aspherical lens featuring
100% distortion free sight and 180º of Pure Vision.
3M’s premium design may seem unimportant from a
protective perspective. However, if eyewear is attractive and
comfortable to wear, your staff will be encouraged to use
it. 3M’s premium design will therefore contribute to reduce
the 600 eye injuries which occur daily in industry. To assist
this, we are proud of the nomination of the Maxim model
for the German Design Prize 2006, the first time
ever that protective eyewear has been considered for this
prestigious distinction.
3M’s capabilities also include Premium Coating Technology,
which is evident in our proprietary 3M™ DX™ coating.
DX-coating offers a unique formula for the four critical
protective properties: anti-mist, abrasion resistance,

The Human Eye:
· The Cornea: in direct contact with external environment, plays an
essential part on the transmission of light rays. It is the structure
of the human body which has the highest tactile sensibility.
· The pupil: (light controller), situated in the middle of the iris,
works like the diaphragm of a camera. Its diameter changes in
accordance with the luminosity.
· The Lens allows focusing (near vision, far vision) thanks
to a control muscle. With age this muscle loses power and
impacts near vision (presbyopia). The lens can lose its
transparency due to exposure to IR (infrared light)
and UV (ultraviolet light), resulting in loss of vision (cataract).
· The Retina: where all light beams converge, transmits all
information through the optic nerve to the brain in order to create
your vision. Burned retina cells are lost forever which cause
irreversible loss of vision.

· Thermal hazards: hot liquid, molten splash, flames.
· Chemical or Biological hazards: splashes for
acids, solvents, alkalis, infected blood.
· Radiation hazards: ultraviolet, infrared,
visible, light, laser.
· Electrical hazards: direct contact,
