Protect Your Hands With Tillman 1018 Welding Gloves
Stick welding is still one of the most popular and widely practiced techniques for welding regardless of which industry you work in. It’s versatile, and has proven its worth over decades of construction and other industrial work. But just because it’s an older, well understood technique, that doesn’t mean that it’s safer than other forms of welding.
Like any type of welding, there are huge amounts of heat, light and sparks generated during the stick welding process, but in order to get the job done correctly, there needs to be an experienced welder holding that torch. That means that the hands, one of the most useful and delicate parts of the human body, needs to be right in the thick of the action, holding the torch and directing the weld. And that means there’s a need for quality protection, which Tillman provides.
Tillman Quality Gloves
Tillman is a California company that has been catering to the needs of heavy industry since 1928. Initially Tillman served the oil district of southern California with a handful of protective items, but today, they have over 1000 products used all over America by professional welders and others.
Tillman’s reputation is well deserved. They cover a broad range industrial needs including driving, general work, and, of course, welding. In the case of stick welding, it’s obvious that an extra layer of protection is required because this particular technique still draws the hottest temperatures and creates the most sparking of any welding practice.
Extra Protection For Stick Welding
Tillman’s 1018 Stick Welding Gloves are designed to address head on the extra heat that comes from this type of welding. Because stick welding requires less dexterity than other techniques, this means that the glove can go the extra mile in terms of padding and protection. The 1018 is part of Tillman’s standard line, and is made with shoulder split cowhide. The interior is lined with cotton for comfort, but reinforced with foam for insulation and protection.
The thumb on the 1018 has been reinforced in consideration with its proximity to the welding, and the fingers have been “welted” with a thin layer of leather between fingers for added durability. Lock stitching with Kevlar completes the glove with added strength and flame resistance.
