What kind and what brand of gloves are people using for handling hot wave solder pallets? My operators are going through a pair a week. I need something better. Thanks

As long as your operator is grounded, a pair of welders gloves is fine. The leather kind do not build up static and do last a while. If the same pair of gloves is being used for dedrossing the wave, pay special attention to loose fitting gloves. I have seen operators scoop up solder by wearing loose fitting gloves.

we use welders gloves with cuffs. there are some other heat gloves out there as well, we like the durability of leather though
