What Are the Cryogenic Gloves For?

The Frosters Cryogenic Gloves offer protection against the extreme cold, including when handling materials that have a temperatures that range from -120°C to -190°C. As their polyolefin and polyester micro fibre middle liner works with a polyamide coating, the gloves offer effective thermal insulation that doesn't become stiff even when temperatures are extremely low. Some tasks where we would recommend these gloves include:

  • Bottle handling
  • Cryogenics
  • Dry ice handling
  • Freezer work
  • Laboratory
  • Scientists
  • Sub zero work

Please note that this gloves are designed for handling extremely cold materials. We wouldn't recommend them for simple, cold outdoor work, however if you work means that you have to handle items that are far below freezing, then these gloves are ideal.

What Temperatures Can They Protect Against?

These gloves are designed for people who work with materials that are far below freezing. This can include cryogenics, dry ice handling, bottle handling and scientific work where you can expect to experiment with freezing materials. Although there is no real answer, these gloves are proven to prove suitable when handling solid materials that are between -120°C and -190°C without them becoming stiff.

Scilabub Gloves are designed for handling items that have been submerged in liquid nitrogen. This includes in vaccine research, where Prime Minister Boris Johnson was seen visiting a vaccine research facility in September 2020. You can see scientists use Scilabub to protect their hands towards the end of the below video.

Why Should I Trust These Gloves?

Working with temperatures this low can cause serious damage to your hands and arms, so you'll want to know that you can trust what these gloves say. In order to do that, these gloves have been tested to EN standards EN 388 and EN 511, measuring their resistance to mechanical threats and the cold. They achieved the following scores:

EN 388

Hazard Level of Resistance
Abrasion Resistance Level 2
Cut Resistance N/A
Tear Resistance Level 2
Puncture Resistance N/A

EN 511

Hazard Level of Resistance
Contact Cold Level 2
Convective Cold Level 2
Water Permeability N/A

How Waterproof Are These Gloves?

The Frosters Cryogenic Gloves feature a polyamide waterproof coating that can resist condensed water on cold surfaces. Please note that this is not completely waterproof, and will only protect your hands when handling damp materials or in a place with cold water vapour. If you want to submerge your hands in liquids such as liquid nitrogen, we would recommend the following waterproof gloves:

How Do The Frosters Cryogenic Gloves Work?

The Scilabub Gloves feature an outer layer of woven polyamide, which has a waterproof coating that can resist water vapour and water on damp materials. However, the middle layer features a special polyolefin and polyester micro fibre that has twice the effectiveness of a normal thermal fibre. This then helps to minimise heat transfer without the material being too thick to handle materials.

What Does the Frosters Gloves Fit Feel Like?

As these gloves are extra long and feature an interior cotton lining, their comfort stretches from your fingertips to the top of your arms. They are designed to be lightweight too, which is ideal as the gloves will cover your entire arms. If you require shorter cryogenic gloves, you can access them by clicking on the links below.

Will I Retain Dexterity in Freezing Conditions?

When handling freezing cold materials you can expect to want to retain dexterity, as this helps to retain grip for yourself while minimising any risk. These gloves are designed to stay flexible even when handling materials that are lower than -100°C, helping to ensure that you can do your job with more productivity and more impact.
