Adjust your welding helmet, not yourself.

  • Three images showing a piece of metal being welded with a circle superimposed that contains the text Variable Dark State Colours.
    Variable colour technology with G5-01VC

    Choose between natural (A), cool (B) or warm (C) tones for your dark state. You determine which colour tone provides the best viewing contrast for your welds, and the most comfort for your eyes.

  • A welding mask with a light shining under the viewing window.
    Light up your workspace

    An optional helmet-mounted task light (46-0500-01) provides hours of powerful lighting and runs off the 3M™ Adflo™ Brand battery pack, enabling welders to enter and work in poorly lit spaces.

  • A diagram of two faces with welding masks on them, showing the different directions air can flow.
    Adjustable airflow

    Airflow adjustments can be made while wearing the helmet. Direct the airflow to either your face (1), your visor (2), or some combination of both. Adjust the amount of air coming from the top outlet (3) vs. the two side outlets (4), or choose a blend of both.

  • Two 3M™ Speedglas™ Auto Darkening Filter Series G5-01, the G5-01 and the G5-01VC.
    A more natural light state

    There are two options of 3M™ Speedglas™ Auto-Darkening Filter (ADF) Series G5-01. Both standard (G5-01) and variable colour (G5-01VC) ADFs offer Natural Colour Technology with great clarity before, during and after welding.
