4. 3M™ Speedglas™ 'Super Light' Welding Shield

3M ID:
Speedglas SL Welding Shield  

At 360 grams, our lightest shield yet!

The Speedglas SL welding shield is made from strong, lightweight material with excellent protection. Unlike other materials that can absorb moisture and become heavy, the Speedglas SL shield is non-absorbent, so it retains its performance in high humidity.

Using new liquid crystal designs and manufacturing techniques, we are able to make the Speedglas SL auto darkening welding filter much lighter than other models but with the same outstanding optical quality and switching performance.

- For most arc processes such as MMA, MIG/MAG, TIG and plasma welding
- Variable (8-12) dark shade
- 4 sensitivity settings
- Battery life: 1500 hours
