New RADNOR Welding Helmet features 3M Speedglas Technology
Airgas®, an Air Liquide company and a leading supplier of safety and welding products, is partnering with 3M, a leader in personal protective equipment solutions, to launch a newly branded line of RADNOR® welding helmets and accessories using 3M™ Speedglas™ technology.
This new welding helmet line is a first-of-its-kind collaboration and brings remarkable rugged, reliable and enhanced welding performance to today’s welder at an affordable price point. The RADNOR welding helmets made by 3M Speedglas are designed for all-day comfort, with comfortable headgear, larger viewing areas and longer battery life.
Lenses using 3M’s proprietary Speedglas technology help welders clearly see the arc of the weld. The professional-grade helmets are lightweight so welders stay comfortable while hitting daily goals.
The new helmets are arriving in Airgas’ 900+ retail locations this spring and are also available via the Airgas Total Access® telesales channel and online at Airgas.com.
Rob Tessier, National Director – Advanced Fabrication, Airgas: “We rely on welders to build—our bridges, cars, spaceships and more—while wearing the equipment to help keep them protected. It is important that welders benefit directly from technological advances, including in personal protective equipment. We are thrilled to work with 3M to make an affordable, innovative and comfortable RADNOR welding helmet available for all.”
Jason Grouette, Vice President, USA & Canada, 3M Personal Safety Division: “We’ve committed ourselves to developing products that help improve the productivity and comfort of welders while helping protect them from the hazards of their trade. From the first ground-breaking auto-darkening welding helmet in 1981 to our current line-up of state-of-the-art welding safety products, we continue to revolutionize the space. This exciting RADNOR® made by 3M™ Speedglas™ collaboration with Airgas provides a tremendous opportunity to get 3M™ Speedglas™ welding safety products into the hands of more welders.”
