How to Use of the Welding Parts Suppliers Process

Knowing what your hands will be exposed to will help you select the best glove for each application. Depending upon the Welding Parts Suppliers (XINGHUI) process we use, will also influence the type of gloves that we use. Gas tungsten arc welding tends to use lighter gloves with thinner materials in the fingers for more sensitivity, but they offer the least heat resistance. Gas metal arc welding gloves have more insulation in the fingers, but not as much is the heavier gloves used for shielded metal arc welding and flux core arc welding. Air arc cutting, flux core arc welding and shielded metal arc welding are going to create the highest demand for hand safety of the welding and cutting processes.

Leather seems to be the most durable and reliable choice for welding gloves. The weather themselves can come in many different types. Cowhide, pigskin, sheepskin, deerskin, and other types of leathers are not at all uncommon. The cowhide and pigskin gloves tend to stand up to more rough use, sharp edges, as well as heat. On the other hand, the sheepskin and deerskin tend to be more supple and more sensitive then the cow and pig type leathers. We see those a lot in gas tungsten arc welding gloves were sensitivity is one of the key factors in glove construction.

Gloves cannot give us much protection if our hands end up in the wrong place and get crushed or squeezed between two surfaces that we cannot remove our hands from. Also care should be taken, even with the best gloves, around sharp objects. It’s not uncommon to see a very sharp piece of sheet metal out of the back of a shear or some other piece of equipment that slices right through the best of gloves. Protection against heat just depends on how much insulation and how many layers of protection exist in the gloves.
