Welding gloves and welding gauntlets are essential personal protective equipment (PPE) for welders. They are used to protect the hands and wrists from the intense heat, sparks, and harmful UV radiation generated during welding processes such as MIG, TIG, and Arc MMA welding.
MIG welding gloves and gauntlets are typically made from leather or synthetic materials that are heat-resistant and provide a good level of dexterity. They are designed to protect the welder's hands from the intense heat and sparks generated by the MIG welding process while still allowing them to manipulate the MIG torch with precision.
TIG welding gloves and gauntlets are made from a combination of thin leather and other synthetic materials. They are designed to provide the required level of dexterity and sufficient protection. They are typically longer in length to provide additional protection for the wrists. The index finger of the glove is sometimes left open to allow the welder to manipulate the filler wire with precision.
Arc MMA welding gloves and gauntlets are made from more heavy-duty leather materials that provide a high level of heat and spark resistance. This is because MMA arcs are particularly ferocious compared to other welding processes such as TIG/
All types of welding gloves and gauntlets are manufactured with strict quality control to ensure they meet industry standards for protection and durability. They are subject to rigorous testing to ensure they meet the necessary safety requirements and can withstand the demands of the welding process.
