Sandblast gloves are not very exciting but are a must when using a sandblaster. They offer the user’s hands protection during the blasting process. When considering sandblasting equipment gloves are critical. A few factors with sandblasting gloves are material, length, and lining. Most sandblast gloves are rubber or neoprene. Both are tough and work well to protect the hands during blasting.
Glove length is important because when you are using the blaster, say in a cabinet, your reach into the cabinet is going to be as long as the gloves. So if your sandblast cabinet is 36″ deep (front to back) but your gloves are only 18″, you won’t be able to reach to the back of the cabinet. Cyclone offers 18″ and 24″ gloves and we match that length to the cabinet so that you can comfortably reach inside the cabinet. And speaking of comfort lets talk about lining.
Lined gloves are slightly more comfortable than unlined gloves. More importantly, however, lined gloves can help reduce static shocks during blasting. During blasting, the abrasive media inside the cabinet can produce amazing amounts of static electricity for some users. A static band can also help reduce static shocks.
