Subject: Re: Eye protection for working w/borosilicate glass
You can find a wide variety of glasses and face shields at these two vendors - they offer far more than just the basic set of glasses you're likely to find from the major lab houses. Neither I nor my company has any affiliation with these:

One of our labs uses sealed borosilicate glass tubes for some experiments. A tech seals several dozen of the tubes with a torch (I know he is using oxygen, I think the fuel is propane, I know it is not acetylene) at one time. He was complaining about the brightness of the light, so is now wearing safety sunglasses that block 99+% UV.
Anyone have experience with something similar to this? I have seen the didymium glasses that hobbyists use for glass blowing, but I am not sure what eye protection to provide. He has tried welders goggles, but found them too dark.
