So i get a pair of Safety goggles off my Neice's Partner who works in a M.O.T Car Garage...
anyway the goggles are too dark for 445nm the dot looks green/yellow mixture and i cant see any beam at all (not too bothered) as i only use the goggles when burning or indoors.

So my question is whats the best color goggles for 445nm lasers ?

These goggles are for welding by the looks of it :)

Welding goggles are no good. 445nm glasses are red with a rating of what power they can handle.

Dont use welding goggles. The colour of 445 goggles can be anything from green to yellow to orange to red to brown. So there is no set colour.

It depends on the absorption characteristics of the dyes used in the glasses. Laser goggles will state what wavelengths are blocked and to what extent through their OD rating. Look in my sig for more info.
