Requirements on welding glovesHandsand wrists should be protected during the welding process by welding gloves against the following hazards
:small splashes of molten metal, brief contact with limited flame exposure,convective heat/contact heat,UV rays from the arc,mechanical loadsWelding gloves are divided into two versions
:Version A: low dexterity, Version B: high dexterity z. DIN EN 12477 defines
the performance requirements for welding gloves for mechanical and thermal resistance.
Tips for choosing the right welding gloves:Like all other protective gloves, welding gloves should be correctly marked. In addition, sparks or small metal splashes should not be able to settle in seams, but should roll off the glove well. The seams should be made of heat-resistant yarn (e.g. Kevlar).

General requirements Heat protection gloves
All heat protection gloves must comply with EN 420. It defines the general requirements for gloves.
Here, pictograms, labels, instructions for use and the CE marking are also specified as standards. The calculatedelten values are incorporated into
standards such as forms and labels.
heat protection gloves are divided into three categories
Classification of glovesThe
:CE KAT I: minimum risks, low protection requirements, declaration of conformity, CE mark, article no. size, naming the manufacturer.
CE KAT II: Medium risk, protection against e.g. mechanical and thermal (up to 350 degrees) risks, as in KAT I but with pictogram and power levels.
CE KATIII: Highest risk, protection against irreversible damage and fatal injuriesefahre, like KAT I but with pictogram and performance levels, identification number of the testing and monitoring institute.
Heat-protective gloves up to 250 degreesEveryCE category
glovecan be used. A single insulated glove made of typical outer materials is sufficient for low thermal stress:
cotton loop fabric, leather, single insulated Kevlar knitted gloves. Applications: Baking ovens, light laboratory work, simple welding work, etc.
