Did you know
When welding
galvanised steel, zinc
oxide particles are
produced. These can
cause metal fume
fever.
A 3M Adflo particle
filter will help protect
against this.
Did you know
MIG Welding stainless
steel can create fume
containing particles of
nickel and chromium,
some of the most
common occupational
asthmagens and also
known carcinogens.
A 3M Adflo particle
filter will help protect
against this.
Ask any experienced welder about the hazards of the job
and eye protection usually comes top of their list.
But here at 3M we’ve never lost sight of the bigger picture.
And nor should you. Here’s why...
For more than 30 years some of the welding world’s most advanced eye and
face protection has been developed and manufactured by 3M.
Yes, like you, we take eye and face protection extremely seriously.
Unfortunately, there are other less obvious hazards that may affect your welders’
health and productivity. Respiratory issues resulting from long-term exposure
to airborne particles, gases and vapours are becoming increasingly evident,
presenting additional responsibilities for welding managers and safety officers.
Yourresponsibility.
n Shortness of breath was the most frequently reported work-related problem, whilst
n 62% of workers also had nose and throat symptoms that could be attributed to welding fumes.
n Of those studied only 6% were considered able to continue welding.
Study reveals cause for concern.
A study investigating Occupational Asthma* suggests that an average-aged
45 year-old stainless steel welder may accumulate 22.4 years of exposure
to varying degrees of harmful particles/fumes throughout his working life.
An integrated modular solution.
Thankfully, 3M is able to offer an elegant modular solution that will both protect your welding
teams from eye and face injury whilst helping to prevent work-related respiratory problems.
On average, however, it may take up to 18 years before the onset of respiratory
symptoms become apparent. Like smoking, inhalation of certain welding
contaminants may take years before their effects are revealed.
By integrating selected 3M helmets and headtops with our 3M Adflo Powered Air Respirator,
it’s easier than ever to configure bespoke eye, face and respiratory protection as well as providing
a cooler and more comfortable environment for each welder in your team.

When it comes to high-level protection, comfort and versatility
3M Speedglas Welding Helmets and Headtops have always kept
one step ahead of the competition. And a rather big step at that.
But now, hooked up to our latest generation of lighter, more comfortable
3M Adflo Powered Air Respirators or the 3M Versaflo V-500 Regulator,
they create a complete welding protection system that will keep your
team safer and more productive than ever before.

Did you know
Welders without
respiratory protection
are more prone to a
lung infection that can
lead to severe and
sometimes fatal
pneumonia.
Did you know
Arc eye is caused by
UV light emitted when
welding. It damages
the cornea and
conjunctiva and feels
like sand has been
rubbed into the eyes.
It is extremely painful
and can last for up to
24 hours.

The 3M Versaflo
V-500 Supplied Air
Regulator provides a
constant air flow from
a compressor to a 3M
helmet or headtop.
Welding metals with
paints and greases on
them can create toxic
gases, which may
require the use of
gas and vapour filters
as well as particulate
filters to protect
the welder.

Did you know
Metal fume can have
a wide variety of
particle sizes from
0.001microns to
100 microns.
Most of these particles
are too small to be
able to be seen by the
naked human eye.
The average width
of the human hair is
100 microns.

gases and vapours can
or cannot be filtered?
