High temperature insulation zetex fibre gloves and mitts

Overview: Gloves and Mitts

Final Advanced Materials has expanded its product shelf for high temperature protection with a range of Zetex® gloves and mitts by Newtex.

For nearly 40 years, Newtex has been a pioneer and leading global producer of high-performance materials and engineered solutions for thermal management and fire protection since 1978. Newtex is an ISO 9001:2015 certified, vertically integrated manufacturer of an impressive portfolio of heat & fire-resistant fabrics, tapes, personal protective apparel, and custom high temperature solutions.

Hand Protection

Newtex high temperature, heat, and fire-resistant gloves and mitts are made from Zetex®, ZetexPlus®, Z-Flex®, and aramid fabrics to resist temperatures up to 1,095 °C while providing outstanding comfort, insulation, wear resistance, and protection from sparks and molten metal splash. All hand protection is double stitched and reinforced for durability. They are only made of inorganic fibers to ensure that they will not produce hazardous out-gassing. All hand protection is one size fits all, designed to fit loosely so that they can be removed quickly. Custom products are available with minimum order requirements.

Applications of Gloves and Mitts

  • Kiln & furnace operations in laboratories,
  • Heat processing facilities
  • High temperature industrial environments
  • Foundry & glass operations
  • Welding
  • Hot works
  • Industrial and proximity fire fighting

Comparative

Gloves vs. Mitts

We recommend gloves for applications that require dexterity, and mitts for applications in which additional heat protection and longer wear are important.

Mitts are reversible, as either mitt can be worn on the left or right hand. If the palm of a mitt gets damaged, the wearer can flip the mitt and wear it on the opposite hand to extend the life of the product.

Our Range of Gloves and Mitts

Zetex® 100 Series Gloves & Mitts

Zetex® fabrics are woven from highly texturized continuous filament yarn that has been treated with a proprietary texturization process. Zetex® is a superior insulator and provides excellent heat protection, withstanding continuous operating temperatures up to 540 °C and intermittent temperatures up to 700 °C. Made from inorganic materials, these gloves and mitts will not produce hazardous out-gassing

Applications

  • Kiln & furnace operations in laboratories
  • Heat processing facilities
  • High temperature industrial environments

Product range

Zetex® 100 Series Gloves & Mitts: 100 % Zetex® construction for basic heat protection to 700 °C. Available as 28, 36, or 58 cm gloves or 28 or 36 cm mitts.

Zetex® 110 Gloves, aramid palm: Zetex® construction with an aramid palm and thumb for abrasion & puncture resistance and heat protection up to 400 °C.

Zetex® Finger Cots: 100 % Zetex® construction for temperature resistance up to 700 °C. They are commonly used in laboratories and other environments in which the wearer must handle small or delicate hot objects, like test tubes.

Zetex® 200 Series Gloves & Mitts

ZetexPlus® fabric is woven from highly texturized continuous filament yarns and treated with a proprietary vermiculite-based coating. The proprietary coating allows heat to dissipate evenly across the surface of the fabric, significantly boosting its temperature rating and improving abrasion resistance. ZetexPlus® gloves and mitts can withstand continuous operating temperatures up to 815 °C and intermittent temperatures up to 1,095 °C.

Applications

  • Kiln & furnace operations in laboratories
  • Heat processing facilities
  • High temperature industrial environments

Product range

ZetexPlus® 200 Series Gloves & Mitts: 100 % ZetexPlus® construction for temperature resistance up to 1 095 °C and moderate abrasion resistance. Available as 28, 36, or 58 cm gloves or mitts.

ZetexPlus® 220 Series Gloves & Mitts, double palm: ZetexPlus® construction with a double layer of ZetexPlus® at the palm and thumb for greater durability and extended protection from temperatures up to 1,095°C. Available as 36 or 58 cm gloves or mitts.

ZetexPlus® 250 Investment Casters Mitts: The 250 Mitts feature added layers of fiberglass insulation for extended protection from extreme temperatures. These mitts are specifically designed for investment casting operations.

ZetexPlus® 255 Over-mitts, 25 cm: 100 % ZetexPlus® construction, designed to be worn on top of another pair of high temperature mitts to provide extra protection and to extend the life of the more expensive mitts worn underneath.

Zetex® 300 Series Gloves & Mitts

Z-Flex® Multilayer Aluminized gloves provide superior protection from extreme radiant temperatures, sparks, and molten metal splash. They can withstand radiant temperatures up to 1,650 °C and reflect up to 95 % of radiant heat.

Applications

  • Foundry & glass operations
  • Welding
  • Hot works
  • Industrial and proximity fire fighting

Product range

Z-Flex® 302 Gloves (ZetexPlus® Palm): Z-Flex® construction with a ZetexPlus® palm and thumb for radiant heat protection and protection from direct contact with objects up to 1,095 °C.

X20 Proximity Gloves: Premium X Series gloves with a gauntlet style wrist and fleece lining in the fingers for additional insulation; Leather palm for superior grip and dexterity up to 315 °C. Also available with an aramid palm for abrasion resistance.

Core spun aramid 400 Series Gloves & Mitts

Core Spun Aramid gloves and mitts combine the abrasion & puncture resistant benefits of para-aramid with the heat resistance of fiberglass. The 400 Series products are ideal for environments where high temperatures and sharp objects, like glass, are both present.

Applications

  • Glass & metal work
  • Foundry applications
  • Welding
  • Construction sites and processing facilities

Product range

CS Aramid Plus 422 Gloves (Double Palm): with a ZetexPlus® vermiculite coating for additional temperature resistance. The ZetexPlus® coating causes heat to disperse evenly across the surface of the gloves, boosting the operating temperature resistance to 540 °C and the peak temperature resistance to 650 °C. These gloves also feature a double palm for superior durability and extended protection from extreme temperatures.

Kevlar® Sewing Thread

Kevlar® Sewing Thread

Kevlar ® sewing thread is perfect for making high temperature resistant garments. It can also be used in the manufacture of safety clothing and composite materials. Very easy to use during the making, it is however necessary to use a suitable cutting system (special aramid chisel for example). The Kevlar ® yarn is available in 0.23 mm, 0.30 mm, 0.40 mm, and 0.51 mm diameters, sold in 3000 m reels.
