Applications of the Cryogenic Gloves

The Frosters Cryogenic Gloves offer protection against the extreme cold, including when handling materials that have a temperatures that typically 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. Recommended applications include:

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

What Temperatures Can the Frosters Gloves 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. These gloves are proven to prove suitable when handling solid materials that are typically between -120°C and -190°C, without becoming stiff.

What are the Main Uses of the Frosters Range?

One of the main uses of the Frosters range is to protect against spills and splashes of cryogenic materials, including liquid nitrogen. This can occur when pouring, or just generally working with, ultra-cold cryogenic materials. Please note that these gloves are not suitable for immersion in liquid nitrogen.

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 gloves to protect their hands towards the end of the below video.

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. 

For greater protection, 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?

The interior of the Frosters Gloves is filled with cotton, meaning that they are incredibly comfortable to wear. This cotton stretches up the elbow, offering exceptional protection when working in dangerous environments. This level of comfort for high risk work, when working with things such as liquid nitrogen.

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.
