      HOT MATERIALS HANDLING CHART

    HIGHEST HEAT
    To reduce seam exposure and heat transfer, mittens are suggested at the highest heat applications. Different combinations of heavyweight fabrics and linings are recommended to protect from heat. Cover mittens and cover gloves should be used in these high heat situations to add additional layers between the source of the heat and the hand. Fabrics to be considered at the highest temperature ranges include PBI , PBI and Kevlar blend, and treated fiberglass.


    HIGH HEAT
    Combinations of fabrics and materials are still very important in this temperature range. Although several layers of each should be used to protect from the heat, more dexterity can result by reducing the number of layers due to lower heat exposure. The same fabrics can be used in this category as the higher heat category, only in lighter weight versions. 22-30 ounce fabrics can be considered.


    MODERATE HEAT
    In moderate heat applications, fiberglass and Kevlar outer fabrics are used. Although layering is still important, more options are available in regards to abrasion characteristics. As with the other two categories, large full cut patterns are still suggested in this category.


    LOWER HEAT
    In lower heat situations, single layers of fiberglass and Kevlar in combination with wool and other liners are suggested. Leather is also considered in conjunction with wool and Nomex linings. In the lower levels of this category, single ply leather and liner products can be used.

      COMFORT AND DEXTERITY CHART

    TIG LEATHER GUIDE
    Choosing the right leather makes the difference! Use the cart below to help decide on the right TIG leather for the job. In general, thinner, more supple leather has the least loss of dexterity while thicker leather provides more durability.


    DEERSKIN

    By nature soft and supple. Maxim dexterity and warmth. Used in applications where sensitivity and feel are required.
    CAPESKIN

    Sheepskin, hair sheep, capeskin sot and supple grain leather used in applications where maximum dexterity and sensitivity are required.
    GOATSKIN

    A strong leather with natural lanolin content. Lanolin provides a small degree of water repellence and also comfort to the hands. For light to medium applications.
    COWHIDE

    Grain cowhide is commonly used in drivers and linemans gloves. Strong and supple, conforms to the wearer's hand.
    PIGSKIN

    somewhat comfortable but extremely tough and flexible even after becoming wet. Hair follicles go all the way through the grain. Therefore, pigskin leather is naturally "air conditioned".
