Welding gloves are personal protective equipment (PPE) that protect the hands of welders from the hazards of welding. These gloves allow digit articulation while protecting the operator from electrical shock, extreme heat, and ultraviolet and infrared radiation, and also provide abrasion resistance and enhanced grip.
Welding is multi-functional work, so your welding gloves need to be multi-functional, too. Make sure it provides protection not only for welding itself but all the other tasks a welder needs to perform.
Welding gloves can only protect you while they’re on your hands.
Welding gloves don’t last forever. They will need to be replaced according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
After all, your welding glove can protect you against electrical hazards, but only if there are no holes in it
