Now that Bisons are raised for flesh consumption Weldas is able to introduce 3 types of new gloves made of Bison leather. With Bison leather the user does not have to sacrifice comfort for durability or protection. Weldas has discovered that North American Bison hides are tougher than cowhide and offering a better tear and abrasion resistance. This better tear and abrasion resistance can be found back also in the test reports from TÜV Germany who, like all other Weldas personal protection products, did the test for the applicable European norm on these products: the EN12477 for the 2 models welding gloves and the EN 388 for the driver model glove. Also the fit of the glove is better than deerskin which was considered the best on this subject. Heat and flame resistance is better than practically any other leather which gives better result against leather hardening as well as leather cracking. The applied Bison leather, which is considered to be Chromium free since the Chromium is less than 2 mg per Kg leather, is better for the users health but also for the environment. Another reason why it is better for the environment is that the leather is coloured by using a natural colouring process, like all other leathers which Weldas is using for their products. Whether it is welding, cutting or material handling: Weldas ThunderingBison gloves helps the user beat the toughest industrial challenges.
