Gloves and Mitts

Gloves and Mitts

Final Advanced Materials is expanding its range of high temperature products with an assortment of Newtex® gloves and mitts.

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. Headquartered outside of Rochester, New York, 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. We are a minority owned, veteran-managed business that has proudly served the US Armed Forces and leading global industries since 1978. Newtex products are proudly made in the USA.

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 2000°F / 1095°C while providing outstanding comfort, insulation, wear resistance, and protection from sparks and molten metal splash.

Our hand protection is double stitched and reinforced for durability. We use only inorganic fibers to ensure that gloves and mitts 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. See Page 9 for more information. Newtex® Extreme Protective apparel is manufactured at our headquarters in Victor, New York, USA.

Gloves vs. Mitts

We recommend gloves for applications that require dexterity, and we recommend 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.

Zetex® 100 Series Gloves & Mitts

Zetex® gloves and mitts have been protecting crews all over the world since 1978. 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 1000°F / 540°C and intermittent temperatures up to 1300°F / 700°C. Made from inorganic materials, these gloves and mitts will not produce hazardous out-gassing.
