TIG/MIG Gloves for TIG/MIG Welding
The glove of choice for most TIG applications is goatskin or another thin, pliable material.
They provide excellent movement for the precise welds made with a TIG torch. Since the
process creates less spatter, TIG gloves won't provide as much protection for hotter
processes that create more spatter.
Some of Miller's TIG gloves provide extra padding inside the palm or on the outside of the
hand. They have performed well in reviews, but simple goatskin gloves by Tillman remain one
of the stop selling gloves for TIG welding because of their excellent fit. Welding Tips and
Tricks recommends using a Tillman glove with some added padding on the fingers that can rest
alongside any hot surfaces.
Another feature to consider is whether you want to be able to "sling" your glove off if it
gets too hot. Gloves with a Velcro strap make it impossible to quickly remove it should it
become uncomfortable from too much heat during the welding process.
Other important features to consider include heat-resistant Kevlar thread and either a wool
or cotton-foam lining for additional protection.
Though some welders use high quality goatskin gloves with a heat-resistant lining for some
MIG welding applications, the higher amounts of heat and spatter created during the MIG
process make a thicker glove desirable for some welders. Top-grain cowhide, goatskin, or
deerskin are all common leather choices you'll find in MIG welding gloves.
A top-grain deerskin glove that molds to your hand offers the protection and flexibility
that MIG welders need.
