What is a thermal lens paintball mask?
A thermal, or dual pane, paintball lens is a type of protective mask lens that greatly reduces fogging while playing. These are comprised of two separate lenses. A thermal lens combats this by sandwiching a layer of air between the lenses.
What are paintball masks made of?
If you wear glasses, make sure any paintball mask you choose can fit over them, because not all models are compatible. Paintball masks are usually made from solid plastic, while the visor is typically made of a polycarbonate material that won’t shatter.
When should I replace my paintball mask lens?
As a general rule, you should buy a replacement lens for your paintball mask once every year or when the tint scratches off and the lens starts to crack, whichever comes first. Most players do this at the beginning of paintball tournaments, but this only applies if you’ve taken great care of your paintball mask.

What is thermal lensing?

In many cases, it crucially limits the possible performance of such devices in terms of output power and beam quality.
Can paintball kill you?
Paintball guns cannot kill you instantly, but they can cause injuries or shock that can potentially result in death. Paintball projectiles can travel up to 200 mph. That said, players must be careful with where they’re shooting — avoid shooting the head or the eyes — mainly when players shoot nearby.
Can you eat paintballs?

How do you clean the dye on a i5 lens?
You need to take the lenses right out of the mask as soon as you get home and clean them with a damp microfiber then a dry one, on both sides of the lense. You can carefully run luke warm water over the outside of the lense but don’t let it run over the back side or you’ll ruin the seal on the thermal fairly quick.
