Revco 35KF Alpha Black Stallion Kidskin GlovesBearing the Black Stallion name, these Revco 35KF TIG welding gloves are designed with protection and quality in mind. An affordable glove, this personal protection equipment (PPE) safeguards against the intense heat and metal splatter than often occurs when welding.
These gloves have a longer cuff, which provides protection to the upper arm and makes it possible to tuck the gloves into a safety jacket or thick shirt. The thick CushionCore insulation on the back of the hand protects against accidental contact with the welding surface, and the Kevlar stitching increases the durability of the seams. Gloves stitched with cotton or nylon often fall apart prematurely, which results in having to replace them frequently.
Safety Gloves for TIG WeldingTIG welding produces the lowest amount of heat of all welding types, so gloves don’t have to be as thick. Radiant heat and the heat buildup on metal still necessitate the need for hand protection. One of the most important things to consider when choosing TIG welding gloves is the touch sensitivity level. TIG welding requires a light touch, so gloves should be thin and lightweight. They should also fit snugly to allow for a full range of motion.
TIG welding also doesn’t create slag in the same way that MIG welding does, but extended arm protection is still a must. This prevents overexposure to ultraviolet radiation, which can cause a host of health-related issues. The lifespan of your gloves depends a lot on how much welding you do. If you find your gloves wear out quickly, it may be time for an upgrade.
Importance of Safety ComplianceIt’s no secret that welding poses a wealth of health risks. Welders put out a lot of sparks, metal fragments, heat and fumes. Most welders spend a full day exposed to these conditions, so quality safety gear is a must.
Safety generally starts with the worker, but contractors, business owners and worksite managers should also be aware of the importance of safety equipment. The Occupation Safety and Health Administration regulate the type of safety equipment needed for workers, so it’s important to remain compliant to avoid fines.
Understanding KidskinKidskin is a type of thin leather that is extremely thin and soft. It’s often made from the skin of young goats but may also come from lambskin or calfskin. Goatskin has a smoother and softer grain that makes it comfortable to wear. It also has an excellent tensile strength and abrasion resistance, so it resists tears and punctures, which is important when handling metal.
Though kidskin is just as durable as adult goatskin or cowhide, it generally is more affordable, which makes it an excellent choice for those on a budget or for companies looking to outfit an entire workforce. Kidskin is extremely flexible, which provides a greater range of motion when TIG welding.
