The difference between molten metal spatter and small metal projections when we weld

Sometimes one term is confused for the other.
 

When we are in a metal foundry such as, for example: steel, iron, stainless steel, aluminum, nickel, chrome, copper, etc. we always speak of protection to the ISO 9185 standard (according to EN ISO EN11612)

Where we will find fabrics and garments with protection at different levels: E1, E2, E3.

And for Aluminum: D1 – D2-D3. This test certifies the protection against big quantity of molten metal.

And on the other hand, in welding works , we always talk about metal protection (welding projections and related techniques) with ISO 9150 (according to EN ISO 11611).

Where we will find fabrics and garments with protection at 2 levels: Class 1 – Class 2.

This test certifies protection against small splashes at high speed of metal drops.
