Look Under the Hood to See What Makes These Welding Gloves So Heat Resistant

Posted on

Welding is dangerous business, and it's important to choose welding gloves that can take the heat. 

Welding gloves are a welder's protection against burns and other dangers

Heat-resistant welding gloves are a necessity to keep your hands and arms safe. It takes advanced design and a bit of ingenuity to make a glove resistant to heat and flame, and that's exactly what you'll find when you look 'under the hood' of the Lincoln 4082 Heavy Duty Stick MIG Welding Gloves.

The Lincoln K4082 Welding Gloves Are Made to Last

The last thing you want is to spend time and money choosing a pair of welding gloves, only to have them fall apart when you need them most. That's why the 4082 gloves are made from premium black and tan split cowhide for superior durability and abrasion protection.

In addition, the K4082 gloves feature continuous welting and 5-ply Kevlar stitching throughout the glove construction for increased longevity. The double reinforced thumb also helps to ensure long product life while also providing extra protection.

Three Layers Of Heat Protection 

Welding gloves are there to take the heat so your hands and arms don't have to, and you don't want to trust that job to a glove that's not up to the task. That's why Lincoln Electric has developed the FlameSoft system. This 3-layer design provides burn protection while also increasing heat resistance and comfort.

The FlameSoft system consists of three layers. The outer layer consists of premium shoulder split cowhide. The middle layer is a flame-retardant foam liner, while the layer closest to your skin is flame-retardant cotton. In the K4082 Welding Gloves, the FlameSoft layer begins in the wrist area and continues through to the palm, back of hand, and fingertips.
