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 Level 1

Applications of the Cryogenic Elasticated Gloves

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

  • Bottle handling
  • Cryogenics
  • Dry ice handling
  • Liquid nitrogen handling
  • Freezer work
  • Scientists
  • Sub zero work

Please note that these 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 gloves are ideal.

Which Size Should I Choose?

The Frosters Gloves are available in four sizes that should be suitable for most users. To find your perfect pair, please measure the circumference and length of your palm and match the results to the table below.

Glove Size Palm Circ.  Palm Length Min. Length of Glove
Size 8 (Small) 203mm 182mm 240mm
Size 9 (Medium) 229mm 192mm 250mm
Size 10 (Large) 254mm 204mm 260mm
Size 11 (Extra Large) 279mm 215mm 270mm

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.

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

How Waterproof Are the Frosters Cryogenic Gloves?

The Cryogenic Gloves are designed to offer superb insulation, with their superb synthetic fibre outer layer offering total water resistance. This is particularly ideal for cryogenics and liquid nitrogen handling, 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 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 Gloves Work?

The Scilabub 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 Gloves Fit Feel Like?

The Frosters Gloves with Elasticated Wrist are designed to be comfortable, with a cotton interior coating that keeps the hands cosy and warm during use. The elasticated wrist can protect the hands from external risks too, preventing debris from entering the gloves.

Are They Available in Longer Sizes?

The Frosters Gloves are available in a range of different lengths. They are available 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 to minimise any risk. These gloves are designed to stay flexible even when handling materials that are lower than -100°C.
