We all know of some now famous artist who wasn't recognized until after their death. That's no reason for us to rush out and kill ourselves, now is it?
Many of the materials and processes we use are hazardous. Taking a little time to protect ourselves will allow us to stay alive longer, so we can produce more work.
In our report, How to select the right High Temperature Glove, I state that gloves can usually be thought of as a consumable, and I recommend that you buy the least expensive glove that does what you need it to do.
For general use, we carry the Steel Grip line of Kevlar gloves, mitts, sleeves, and cover mitts. We have found these to be a high quality and cost effective line.
Sometimes, though, your particular situation requires something more. So, we also carry the Newtex brand of Zetex gloves, mitts, and cover mitts. Their propritary Zetex and Zetex Plus materials offer additional thermal protection over standard Kevlar gloves.
