Thermal proof gloves, such as heat resistant gloves and cold-resistant gloves, protect against extreme temperatures and are fabricated from a variety of materials, including:Neoprene:
Neoprene gloves are used for protection against frost and burn injuries, as in the case of firefighting gloves. Besides its thermal resistant characteristics, this flexible and durable material is effective for various operations as it outlasts and outperforms even natural rubber when exposed to extreme temperatures. Some of the common applications for these gloves include petrochemical and wire manufacturing operations.
Aluminized Material: Aluminized material is capable of handling and withstanding extremely high temperatures (depending on the specific formula, up to and exceeding 2,000° F). Combined with the material’s insulating and reflective properties, gloves made of this material are suitable for high-temperature operations such as welding, furnace and foundry, and some laboratory applications.
