    Angry ProTech 8 Gloves

    I heard that the ProTech 8 Gloves have been de-listed last week. Anybody know the reason? I heard that they did not pass some of the NFPA tests. This job is hard enough without gloves that do not pass NFPA. We need to stay with certfied product.

    The gloves were delisted because they had a fused polyester liner. This liner melts well below the criteria for the innermost lining of the glove.
