Weldcote (Kings Mountain, NC), a division of Zika Group, introduces its true-color, auto-darkening filters that feature clear, true-color blue, high-definition technology that enhances the visible spectrum for optimal clarity and reduced eye fatigue. Designed for passive-style welding helmets, the high-quality, auto-darkening filter, also referred to as a retrofit lens, provides users with vision accuracy, light diffusion and consistent shade. Specifically:
The new Weldcote filters fit all passive style helmets that feature a standard 2 X 4 passive filter lens, and some auto-darkening helmets, depending on style.
With a view area of 3.62-inches by 1.42-inches (5.15-square-inches) and a thickness of 0.2-inches, the fixed filter is available in 9, 10, 11 or 12 shade number. It has a start in shade 3-grind mode.
Weldcote’s new filters have two independent arc sensors, a near instant (0.3 second) switching time, a solar cell with a non-replaceable lithium battery backup.
The filters come with a two-year warranty and meet ANSI Z87.1, CSA Z94.3 and CE EN 379 standards.
