V-Gard® Visors for Welding, Cutting and Brazing Applications

V-Gard polycarbonate shaded visors are thick and molded to protect against damage from impact, elevated temperatures, weld spatter and infrared (IR) radiation. Ideal for autogenous welding, metal pouring, gas soldering and light cutting/brazing, they’re engineered for heavy-duty use.
