These Torch Work Glasses
utilize Schott Technology's ACE (Amethyst Contrast Enhancer) rare earth
oxide glass for the lenses. While effectively filtering the harmful
wavelengths produced by the sodium flare, the ACE composition enhances the
red, green and blue wavelengths. This renders a more realistic appearance
of your glass as you work the bead in the flame.
The Phillips 202-ACE lenses
filter out harmful UV to 390nm wavelength.
Well suited for working with System 96, Bullseye or Moretti/Effetre glass
- in other words, anything you will find at SunshineGlass.com,
NOT for borosilicate, pyrex or fused quartz.
The Phillips 202-ACE Didymium glasses
are quickly becoming the choice of torch workers everywhere. They are
comfortable for viewing for longer periods. Made by Phillips Safety, a
leader in vision protection.
NOTE REGARDING LENS COLOR: In sunlight or incandescent light, these
lenses will have a light purple cast. Under fluorescent bulbs, the lenses
will appear to be a light steel blue.
