Premier new hot mill gloves deliver unrivaled comfort, durability, protection and value
May 19, 2021 -- Northbrook, IL -- Saf-T-Gard International., Inc. continues to revolutionize the hand protection industry with the availability of the new Saf-T-Gard® Therma-Gard® HeatWave TGH-15000 Hot Mill Gloves. Made from a proprietary 2-layer seamless machine knit construction, the Saf-T-Gard® Therma-Gard® HeatWave TGH-15000 Hot Mill Gloves are the first-ever hot mill gloves of its kind and showcase a variety of features and benefits that are not currently available in traditionally cut and sewn hot mill gloves.
Not only do knitted gloves provide more comfort, dexterity and tactile sensitivity, but they also deliver better abrasion resistance and twice the durability of woven gloves of the same fabric weight with no seams to wear out or weaken. The two layers are affixed together at the fingertips to prevent the lining from pulling out when the gloves are doffed. Moreover, a reversible design fits either hand to reduce waste and extend product usage in the field, while the gray color also helps to hide dirt for longer wear.
In addition to providing enhanced comfort and exceptional durability, the Saf-T-Gard® Therma-Gard® HeatWave TGH-15000 Hot Mill Gloves are the only hot mill gloves that are tested in accordance with the ASTM F1060-08 standard and offer an ANSI/ISEA 105-2016 Level 5 Conductive Heat Resistance - the highest possible - for superior heat protection in temperatures up to 605°F (320°C). The double material thickness throughout the gloves further adds to the heat resistance, while the loops-in Terrycloth outer layer helps maintain the air pockets between the two layers to provide the ultimate heat insulator.
“The Saf-T-Gard® Therma-Gard® HeatWave TGH-15000 Hot Mill Gloves were specifically designed and manufactured to meet the needs of a diverse set of high-heat applications including die casting, milling, metal
working/processing, forging and rubber molding all while delivering better comfort and durability,” said Richard Rivkin, Saf-T-Gard CEO and Chairman of the Board. “The Saf-T-Gard® Therma-Gard® HeatWave TGH-15000 Hot Mill Gloves combine unsurpassed comfort and flexibility with 50-90% more heat-absorbing material when compared to traditionally cut and sewn hot mill gloves. Furthermore, heat resistance is a combination of how hot, how large and how long, and these gloves are the only hot mill gloves to have the ANSI testing, and to that end, offer the highest level of heat resistance available.”
Available in a universal size, the Saf-T-Gard® Therma-Gard® HeatWave TGH-15000 Hot Mill Gloves include a wide, extended knit wrist cuff that secures the gloves to the hands and also allows for a quick and easy removal. The gloves are sold by the dozen, packaged 12 pairs per master polybag, 6 dozen pairs (72 pairs) per case and are available for immediate shipment.
