Scilabubs 'frosters' range of gloves have been specially developed for the handling of very cold objects. Typically they are used for handling objects stored in the vapour stage of liquid nitrogen (ranging from -120°C to -190°C).
At actual liquid nitrogen temperature there is some stiffening of the material, but it still remains flexible enough for use.
These gloves are also very useful for other situations where low temperatures are an issue such as storage freezers, cold rooms, the handling of 'dry ice' and microtomes. They have recently been used as PPE in the development of the AstraZeneca vaccine and for the handling of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in the fight against Covid - see our 'In Action' page for more information.
The 'frosters' range is available in four styles; wrist, mid-arm, elbow and extended (shoulder) length and in small, medium, large and extra large sizes.
Manufactured to European standard EN511.
