TIG Welding Gloves
TIG welding gloves, or TIG gauntlets, are a type of welding glove that is designed to protect the welder’s hands from the heat, sparks, and spatter that are generated during TIG welding. TIG welding is a type of arc welding that uses a tungsten electrode to create an arc between the electrode and the metal being welded. The arc melts the metal and a filler rod is used to add material to the weld.
TIG welding gloves are typically made of leather or a leather-and-fabric blend. The leather provides protection from heat and sparks, while the fabric provides comfort and breathability. TIG welding gloves also typically have a gauntlet design, which helps to protect the welder’s wrists and forearms.
