You would think they would melt badly but they dont. I started using the blue extra thick gloves probably 10 years ago when I was working as an auto tech. The first reason was women dont like the dirty hands, after I got used to wearing them you could not tell what I did for a living by looking at the stains on my cuticles.
As far as them melting the only problem I have had in the whole time is big drips of molten slag. It takes quite a bit to melt them actually however if you grab something hot or touch something hot they retain the heat for a long time; but they come off easy.
