Our society is becoming ever more health-conscious, as science becomes better able to explain the cause-and-effect of diseases and ailments. Conditions that used to be considered as "acceptable" (metal fume fever, arc eye etc.) are now being questioned by many welders. This new generation of welders greatly appreciates the complete eye and face protection of ADF (auto-darkening filter) technology. They also appreciate the protection and comfort benefits of powered respiratory protection.
