The Best Heat Resistant Gloves

Unlike other utility and work gloves, Heat Resistant Gloves are made with a wide variety of various materials from fibers including Nomex and Kevlar to rubber including neoprene. Besides using them at home with cooking and grilling, they are most commonly used for personnel protection in many industries. They are most popular of the food, rubber, mechanical, and petrochemical industries but also widely used for boiler room work, handling of molds, adhesive manufacturing, construction and road work, medical autoclaves and sterilizing, and steam cleaning.  

With over 25 years of selling heat resistant gloves, we’ve managed to select the very best heat resistant gloves that meet everyone’s individual needs and requirements. We have also managed to eliminate any heat resistant gloves from our glove offerings over the years that didn’t perform well or that didn’t hold up well in everyday industrial applications. It should be noted that our offerings include models from neoprene to terry cloth and from knit to heavy gauntlet cuff styles.

We also carry a line of heat resistant arm sleeves for workers that require some arm protection from heat in addition to gloves. Additionally, we also offer some heat resistant gloves with long cuffs and sleeves that offer both hand and arm heat protection. You will find these on our category listing link at the end of this post.

Since we offer over 15 styles of heat resistant gloves that vary in many levels of heat protection from 2500 F up to 26000 F temperatures, I will not list each one here for brevity purposes. However, I will highlight a few models due to their uniqueness. Again, you can find all of our popular and best heat resistant glove models in the category listing on our web site which is linked at the bottom of this post.

Special Note: Keep in mind that some models listed in the Heat Resistant Glove category are also cut resistant in addition to their heat resistant properties.

Below, I am highlighting 3 Heat Resistant Models. I’ve selected these three not only because they are our most popular heat resistant gloves but since they are very distinct from one another.

MAPA Temp-Tec Insulated Neoprene Gloves

These heat resistant gloves are a heavy duty, double-layer glove with thermal insulation and extended length (17” overall) for extra arm protection. A multi-purpose chemical resistant glove with excellent thermal insulation due to a double-knit cotton lining. They also offer good grip of wet or slippery objects. Besides the high heat and chemical resistance against acids and aliphatic solutions, these gloves are also liquid and steam proof. Their heat resistant has been certified up to 480 F. See listing on web site for additional details.   

CarbonX Heat and Flame Resistant Gloves

These heat resistant gloves with a built-in 20” sleeve are made of CarbonX material which is extremely nonflammable. Originally developed for NASCAR, these gloves will not ignite or burn, even when exposed to 26000 F for 120 seconds. They will not melt or shrink. The material’s soft finish and multi-directional stretch make them exceptionally comfortable. The ambidextrous reversible design allows replacing one glove at a time, rather than pairs. The ambidextrous feature also permits the gloves to be worn on either hand, extending wear and reducing costs. See listing on web site for additional details.   

Wells Lamont Heat Resistant Gloves

These seamless knit heat resistant gloves are made with Nomex and Kevlar fibers and rated up to 5000 F.

This is the thinnest model we offer at this temperature range. This is a heat resistant glove that also offers cut resistance. The cotton lining provides comfort while the outside provides excellent thermal properties, allowing you to handle hot objects. The ambidextrous reversible design allows replacing one glove at a time, rather than pairs.
