Employees Like Them
I bought these gloves for our welding and fabrication employees. They had used thinner Tillman gloves in the past, but complained they did not provide enough insulation from high amperage (heat) TIG welding. With a slightly thicker material than the Tillman gloves, these gloves are effective in protecting hands from increased heat. They are rigid when you first start using them, but after a few uses the flexibility is sufficient for most purposes.
I would recommend these gloves as our employees like them and have requested them ever since we purchased the first pair.
Pros-Thicker material offers better protection from heat.
-Rest patch provides added comfort when resting the wrists on a hard surface.
-Index and middle finger lining is thinner, improving tactility while handling TIG rod.
Cons-Thicker material reduces overall glove dexterity. For low amperage TIG welding, thinner gloves may be preferred.
