Heat Protective Gloves
Nomex gloves & gauntlets are designed to offer highly effective protection against high temperatures yet still provide comfort, dexterity and outstanding durability. Offering Category III protection, they are autoclavable and unaffected by washing. Nomex gloves can withstand heat contact of 250°C for 13 seconds without any harm to the user and for 40 seconds at 100°C – enough handling time for most practices.
Manufactured to European standard EN407, EN388 and EN ISO 21420:2020 and UKCA/CE certified.

The gloves give full protection, having double thickness of material in the front and back. Inserts in the sides of the fingers and a shaped, inset thumb provide a comfortable fit. The gloves extend well over the wrist, giving important protection to that area, and are elasticated at the front of the wrist. For comfort and surer handling a knitted Nomex® fabric is used, rather than a woven one.
The gloves give protection in very hot environments because of the low thermal conductivity and the double thickness. However, care should be taken to keep the gloves reasonably dry or water in the interstices will conduct heat across the surfaces. Nomex® withstands temperatures up to 370°C when degradation begins. When exposed to flame, Nomex® does not melt or drip. It simply chars, without offensive odour and with little smoke, to leave a ‘crust’, which continues protection. In normal usage a maximum working temperature of 260°C maintains most physical properties over a number of hours. However, short exposure (e.g. flash fires) gives protection at considerably higher temperatures. This glove can withstand heat contact of 250°C for 13 seconds without any harm to the user and for 40 seconds at 100°C – enough handling time for most practices.
