When and why to wear welding goggles

Welding processes produce intense ultraviolet and infrared rays that cannot be seen and can cause eye damage immediately and even without realizing it. That is why it is necessary that in the welding process use of glasses with the appropriate protection filter and that the welder can see well the metal that is being welded. In addition, this type of glasses have side protectors that prevent the access of sparks.

 

Does the price influence in the quality of a welder’s goggle?

The price does not influence so much, but the filter you choose for the type or intensity of welding applied. That is, depending on whether it is more intense or longer, you will need a stronger level of darkness. This is what the different DINs refer to.

 

What filter or NOT to choose for my welding glasses

The DIN in welding goggles represents the degree of filtration offered by the lens. This is standardized by the DIN agency (Deutsches Institut für Normung) and the scale is established between 1 and 15, with 1 being a completely transparent glass and 15 a completely opaque glass. It is necessary to graduate the opacity in the glasses since each welding technique presents a flame with different characteristics and different emissions in the ultraviolet and infrared spectrum, and which requires more or less protection, so the lens must be able to withstand said intensity no risk of failure. You can consult us if you have doubts about which DIN is the most suitable for your job or welding activity.

 

Buy prescription welding glasses or wear glasses covers

If it is for occasional jobs you can buy a welding goggle that overlaps your graduated goggle, this is the most profitable and practical option. Now, if your welding activity is prolonged and daily, it is advisable to invest in a graduated welding goggle. At Pegaso we have the option of graduating a goggle with a superimposed welding filter, this will allow you to work much more comfortably and efficiently.
