I am a pilot. Pilots gloves are made of Bones with only the palms a soft leather. Bones is used on most of the gloves because leather shrinks quickly in a fire. The flight suits are also Nomex and along with the Nomex head cover under the helmet in combination with the o2 mask and visor combination should protect the pilot from a fuel fire for up to 10 or 15 seconds. More than enough time to eject.

I am looking for feedback - positive and negative =E2=80" from actual users of "Pilot's Gloves" for thermal protection when handling pyrophoric liquids. I am also looking for incident reports of splashes to the hands when any gloves - or no gloves - are worn.

Responses off the list are OK and I will summarize what I get
