Tillman Welding Safety Equipment

Wearing protective safety equipment is crucial when you are welding. The two most important areas to protect when welding are your eyes and hands. There are a range of welding helmets available online, and below is are a selection of safety gloves and clothing from Tillman.

Tillman Welding Gloves

Tillman make some of the most comfortable, durable and effective gloves in the welding industry. They pride themselves on their ability to protect your hands from hot surfaces, sparks, sharp edges and radiation. Take a look at some of their popular products below.

1. Tillman 50 MIG Welding Glove, Pearl

Tillman 50M MIG Welding Glove, Pearl, Medium

  • Make: 50M/50L
  • Weight: 10.6oz/11.4oz
  • Color: White & Tan
  • Material: Leather Cowhide & Fleece Lining

One of the immediate features of this glove it that there’s plenty of dexterity and comfort. Fleece lined makes them comfortable and it also adds extra protection. The cowhide palm is long lasting with strong reinforcements, however, the soft leather can struggle a bit with higher heats so don’t use this for stick welding. This is also available at a great value price, which is why it’s one of Tillman’s most popular gloves.

2. Tillman 24CL Premium Top Grain Pearl Kidskin MIG/TIG

Tillman 24CL Premium Top Grain Pearl Kidskin MIG TIG

  • Make: 24CL
  • Weight: 1lb
  • Color: White & Tan
  • Material: Kidskin Leather

These quality gloves are made from premium top grain goatskin. You won’t feel heat for MIG welding but you’ll feel a bit of heat if you decide to use these for stick welding. There’s no lining to these, which helps if you’re using these for TIG welding because the dexterity is slightly increased. There’s also a straight thumb to improve gun grip, so these are best suited for TIG welding.

3. Tillman 875L Premium Top Grain Elk Welding Gloves – Large

Tillman 875L Premium Top Grain Elk Welding Gloves - Large

  • Make: 875L
  • Color: Black
  • Size: Large
  • Material: Elkskin

I really love this pair of gloves, I like the finish and they perform exceptionally for both dexterity and protection with a great fit. The elkskin is super heat resistant, especially considering how thin it is, so you’ll be fine using this for either TIG, stick or MIG welding. They’re only slightly more expensive that the 50L and 24L and I’d definitely recommend these for the price.

4. Tillman 822L Leather and Aluminized Kevlar Aluminized Welding Glove

Tillman 822L Leather and Aluminized Kevlar Aluminized Welding Glove

  • Make: 822L
  • Color: Silver & Tan
  • Size: Large
  • Material: Leather & Aluminized Kevlar Back with Wool Lining.

These gloves are designed primarily with heat resistance in mind. The aluminized carbon back is designed to reflect heat of up to 1500F and resist spatter. There’s also wool lining for added comfort and insulation and a cowhide palm t0 further add to the quality and insulation of this glove. The only downfall of this glove is that the dexterity is limited so I don’t recommend them for TIG welding.
