Applications of the Cryogenic Gauntlet Gloves

The Cryogenic Waterproof Gauntlet Gloves are designed for the extreme cold. Recommended applications include:

Please note that these gauntlet 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, then these gauntlet gloves are ideal.

What Temperatures Can They Protect Against?

These gauntlet 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 gauntlet gloves are proven to prove suitable when handling solid materials that are typically between -120°C and -190°C without them becoming stiff.

What Are the Main Uses of the Frosters Gloves?

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.

How Waterproof Are the Frosters Cryogenic Gauntlet Gloves?

The Cryogenic Gauntlet Gloves are designed to offer superb insulation, with their superb synthetic fibre outer layer offering total water resistance. This is particularly ideal for cryogenics, as you will be expected to come into contact with extremely cold substances that may be in liquid form. If this is the case, then these gloves will completely protect your arms, hands, wrists and fingers from injury.

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.

How Do The Frosters Cryogenic Gauntlet Gloves Work?

The Scilabub Gauntlet Gloves feature a special outer layer that is designed to resist water, ideal for handling freezing items that have been submerged in substances such as liquid nitrogen. 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 Gauntlet Gloves Fit Feel Like?

The Frosters Gauntlet Gloves offer superb protection from the fingertips to the arms. However, it isn't just protection that they offer, with a soft liner ensuring excellent comfort from the start of your work until the end. The soft liner is warm around your fingers, ensuring that you can work continually without having to worry about hand fatigue starting to set in.

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 Gauntlet 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.
