Call Conney Safety Products at 800-356-9100 (voice) or
800-845-9095 (FAX) and ask for their catalog. It has
every kind of safety gear you could ask for. Their
selection is vast and their service is excellent.
Their catalog has 26(!) pages of nothing but gloves. There
are two pages of temperature resistant gloves, ranging from
terrycloth (good for 300 degrees F) to Zetex-Plus (good for
2000(!) degrees F). A photo shows a piece of orange-hot pipe
on one of these gloves.
