Welding as a profession is all about specialisation. Welding requires specialised training, specialised tools and, of course, specialised gloves. When it comes to welding gloves, there are two types with important key differences between them. So, how do you choose between a MIG and TIG Welding Glove? What are these aforementioned differences, and why choose Buy Any Gloves as your provider of welding gloves? We’ll answer all these questions about welding gloves below.
What are MIG Welding Gloves?
MIG Welding gloves are designed for the semi-automatic process of MIG welding. They are thickly padded and loose on the hand – typically in a gauntlet style. A MIG Glove is all about protecting the non-dominant hand as it rests on the work surface. MIG Welding generates big arcs that require thick leather to protect against. In summary, MIG gloves are thick and protective of both hands, but especially the dominant.
What are TIG Welding Gloves?
TIG Gloves are designed for Torch Welding. The torch creates smaller arcs and requires greater finger control to operate it effectively. Because of this, TIG welding gloves are much lighter and thinner than their MIG counterparts. They prioritise dexterity over protection using thinner leather. Many still incorporate a loose gauntlet design, such as the gloves you’ll find on our site.
