One such success is the bent visor created to meet the specific needs of a Fortune 500 aluminum products company. Tru-Vision Plastics created the patented Visor Cover® for multiple faceshield uses.
Choosing Visor Material
Popular visor materials include:
• Polycarbonate This material is suited for high heat applications where there is little or no exposure to chemicals, and is the best choice for higher energy impact hazards. Polycarbonate visors also provide 100% UV protection at wavelengths below 385 nanometers.
• Polyester This material is an economical choice that offers light to medium impact protection against sawdust, wood chips, grinding particles, or machining debris.
Polyester is not appropriate for jobs in which workers are exposed to chemicals.
• Tinted Visors These visors reduce light transmission and are an option for use in variable light, sunlight, or glare.
