When choosing heat-resistant gloves, one first has to determine whether the heat is dry or moist; whether the exposure is thermal or atmospheric; if open flame or spark is present; and of course, what the temperature is in any of these conditions.
Terry gloves trap air for good insulation, and are great for handling rough, sharp metal parts because terry is also cut resistant. When made with Kevlar®, cut resistance is increased while also withstanding direct flame. An outer layer of Temperbloc® (silicone-coated Kevlar®) allows for direct contact with hot surfaces without burning or melting.
Our SilaChlor®-lined styles offer such high dexterity we were able to make gloves instead of mitts. And finally, for extreme heat hazard, our Dragon series offers multi-layer protection with styles inspired by workers in the steel fabrication industry.
ASTM heat-level 3 light duty gloves for conductive heat resistance up to 400°F/204°C. Available in terry-knit, marl cotton or composite fibers.
ASTM heat-level 4 medium duty gloves for conductive heat resistance up to 500°F/260°C. In cotton terry or canvas, some with Nitrile or Kevlar®.
ASTM heat-level 5 heavy duty gloves for conductive heat resistance to 600°F/315°C and over. In terry knit or carbon fiber, with Kevlar® and more.
Welding arc flash, spark and flame resistant gloves in mechanics or drivers styles. Hi-viz anti-impact, Kevlar® lined or mechanics with carbon backing.
Flame resistant, will not melt or drip when exposed to open flame. Rhovyl® or neoprene palm knit, Kevlar® lined mechanics, or cowgrain fitters.
Gloves with Kevlar® outer shells or lining. In terry knit, string-knit, carbon fiber reinforced knits, heavy-gauge stainless-steel or leather drivers.
