What is Microporous Insulation?
The Skytec Tromso Gloves are coated in a unique microporous nitrile material. What does microporous mean? It means that the nitrile fabric contains pores that are less than 2nm (nanometres) apart, resulting in improved thermal efficiency, less heat loss and improved temperature stability.
Complete Water Protection
Dipped entirely in its microporous nitrile coating, the Skytec Tromso Gloves offer total protection from water and other forms of liquid. The textured surface of the coat also helps to ensure a high-performance grip, no matter how slippery your tools or materials get.
Contact Cold and Contact Heat Safe
Tested to both EN 511 and EN 407 EU standards, the Skytec Tromso offers protection on both ends of the temperature scale. Whether your handling frozen produce or scalding hot pipes, these gloves will prevent your hands from blisters and burns.

Thermal waterproof gloves tend to sacrifice comfort for warmth, but this isn't the case for Tromso. With 360° of breathability and a sanitised antimicrobial finish, these gloves will keep your hands feeling fresh and odour-free throughout a long shift.
