The quality of the gloves that we use for our milling operations has been deteriorating over the last year. We have now reached a point that we would like to change to a different glove. We were wondering if anyone could offer any recommendations of gloves that work well from them. We are looking for a glove that is heat resistant and also will not shed possible contaminates into our products. Our current glove is a loose fitting unlined goat skin model. The problem that we are facing is that they have been getting progressively thinner to the point now that they no longer provide adequate protection from the rubber temperatures. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I would suggest a 5AV90 size L or 5AP60 size S 16 oz. loop in terrycloth glove.  This glove is rated at 250 degrees.
