Selecting The Right TIG Welding Gloves
Featuring Elliotts New Additions to the TIG Mate Welding Gloves Range
In November 2017, Elliotts launched four new additions to the TigMate Welding Glove range. Elliotts is committed to providing quality safety gear to its customers, and the TigMate Welding glove range is a testimony to this statement. Each new glove was created because of an identified need within the Welding industry.
But which of Elliotts TigMate Welding Gloves is right for you? Let’s find out a little more about the range to help you decide…
The TigMate Pro TIG Welding Glove is made from soft goat-skin leather for extra sensitivity and touch and has a fire-resistant fabric on the back of the hand and cuff for additional heat resistance and breathability. The glove also has leather-reinforced knuckles, finger walls, and the back of fingers, and a padded wear patch on the side of the palm. The TigMate Pro glove is available in four different sizes.
TIGMATE PRO C5
The TigMate Pro C5 TIG Welding Glove is our first TIG Welding Glove with Cut 5 protection. The glove has a Cut 5 resistant palm, fingers, and thumb. Similar to our standard TigMate Pro glove, the C5 Glove has Fire-resistant fabric back of the hand and cuff for additional heat resistance and breathability. Made with a soft goatskin leather palm, this premium glove offers a great balance between sensitivity, comfort, and protection.
The RT TIG Welding Glove is manufactured using soft goatskin on the palm for extra sensitivity and touch, and a gold split leather cuff. The glove also features a leather-reinforced pull strip for ease of use and is available in four sizes.
The RX TIG Welding Glove is manufactured using soft goatskin leather on the palm for extra sensitivity and touch, and black split leather for the cuff for extra protection where it’s needed. The glove has a shirred elastic back for a snug fit, a reinforced first and second finger back for extra heat resistance and is sewn using heat-resistant Kevlar thread for additional durability.
TIGMATE SOFT TOUCH 279mm
The TigMate Welding Glove is made from top-grain pigskin leather making it soft, breathable, and comfortable. The glove provides optimal dexterity whilst providing the wearer with improved touch sensitivity. All seams are sewn with Kevlar thread to resist spares and improve durability.
TIGMATE SOFT TOUCH 380mm
The TigMate Soft Touch 380 mm is an exact replica of the above-mentioned TigMate Soft Touch 279 mm glove but with one big difference. The additional gauntlet length is there for those who require the additional protection.
