Leather Arc Flash & Flame-Resistant Gloves
Leather arc flash and flame-resistant gloves are used when performing electrical work such as de-energizing electrical panels, working on automotive electrical systems, and working on machinery in oil and gas facilities. Leather gloves resist wear and provide a balance of abrasion resistance and dexterity. PPE category (CAT)-rated gloves (sometimes called hazard risk category (HRC)) are flame-resistant and meet NFPA 70E standards to protect workers from arc flash burns. They must be worn with other CAT-rated clothing to provide complete protection.
