Answer: 
Hello,

Grainger has contacted its face shield manufacturer (3M and Oberon) and there is no one specific face shield that is suggested for use with Hydrofluoric acid. You can use many different brands, styles and material types. For example, a face shield with a polycarbonate shield may be a good option. Hydrofluoric acid can cause hazing on a face shield, so it may need to be replaced frequently. Typically the polycarbonate options are more economical.

Thank you,

Answer: 
Grainger offers the Oberon Gold Heat Reflective Face Shield 3NMA6.

According to Oberon this shield is very efficient in reflecting away UV and IR (radiant heat) - reflects 99%. It is not temperature, but the intensity of the heat that is important. The intensity of the heat depends on the size or volume of the heated object. For instance a golf ball has much less surface area than a basketball and therefore would not emit as much radiation as the basketball.

Answers

Answer: 
Some possible options of eye/face protection for someone who wears reading glasses would be: 1. Safety Readers such as part number D7976. These are safety glasses AND readers in one. 2. If splash protection is needed, one could wear Safety Readers and also a face shield like 4EZC2. 3. If you want to wear your current readers, you could also try adding Over The Glass (OTG) clear safety glasses or goggles.

Answer: 
Grainger has contacted the product supplier and have been advised by them of the following:

There is no faceshield material that would be compatibile with liquid nitrogen. Faceshields are meant to be used as a secondary form of personal protective equipment (PPE) so you should be wearing the appropriate eye protection in addition to the face shield. What you need is something that is considered a cryogenic face shield. It is not a product we offer, but if you contact your local branch we can check to see if this is something we might be able to source for you as a special order item. It's not a standard stock item, however.

Grainger has contacted the product supplier and has been advised by them of the following:

Any faceshield that is rigid enough to protect from the force of the expected splash. The hot water will then run down the face shield protecting the skin on face and neck from scalding.

Answers

Answer: 
Dust masks and face shields are not ideal protection from silica dust and impact in a sand blasting application. A blasting helmet and supplied air system may be required depending on the specific application. For more information on silica exposure and the OSHA abrasive blasting standard, see Grainger Quick Tips Document 354: Crystialline Silica and Silica Exposure.
