How to Choose the Right Welding Glove

There are many different types of welding gloves to choose from, so it is important that you have a good process for selecting the right pair. You will save time and money when using the three P's: protection, performance, and price.

Protection - Think about what type of protection you'll need for the job. The higher the heat, the more insulation you'll need in your glove. However, it can be hard to hold a thick rod in small diameter with a thicker glove, so keep that in mind.

Performance - Think about what features will benefit you and make the gloves last as long as you want them to. The easiest way to figure out which glove is going to perform the best for you is to ask for an expert recommendation from a Dale Oxygen representative.

Price - Price shouldn't be the main deciding factor when choosing a glove. Find a pair that is comfortable and will last as long as you want it to, and then do some comparative shopping.
