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.
