ARC TIG Welding Gloves
Glove Safety Features
Dexterity is the tactile sensitivity (or flexibility) of a glove. In general, the thinner the glove, the more dexterity it has and the easier it will be to handle small objects. The test we use to determine 212 Performance glove dexterity is EN 420:2009. This test measures the smallest stainless steel pin that can be picked up. The smaller the object, the higher the rating on a 1-5 scale.
Glove flame resistance testing is done using the EN 407:2004 Protective Glove Against Thermal Risk standard. Six thermal hazards are tested in this standard: flammability, contact heat, convection heat, radiant heat, small and large splashes of molten metal. A glove might be tested for some or all of the thermal hazards and each test is measured on a 1-4 scale (4 being the most resistant).
The 212 ARC ECONOMY TIG is the epitome of affordable innovation. Made with a grade A goatskin leather palm, this glove is flexible enough to handle the tightest of conditions. The fire resistant cotton back of hand allows breathable dexterity to help keep you welding all day long and the extended cuff provides additional forearm protection.
