Scilabub Frosters Cryogenic Gloves with Elasticated Wrists
A range of industries require workers operate in dangerously cold environments. It's therefore essential to have proper PPE that enhances dexterity, comfort, and of course safety. The
Scilabub Frosters Cryogenic Handling Gloves with Elasticated Wrists guarantee all this and more using robust, flexible materials for optimum hand protection. What's Included?
With your purchase you will receive:
1 x Pair of Scilabub Cryogenic Gloves 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.

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. Some tasks where we would recommend these gloves include:
Bottle handling Cryogenics Dry ice handling Freezer work Scientists Sub zero work
Please note that this gloves are designed for handling extremely cold materials. We wouldn't recommend them for simple, cold outdoor work, however if you work means that you have to handle items that are far below freezing, then these gloves are ideal.
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. Although there is no real answer, these gloves are proven to prove suitable when handling solid materials that are between -120°C and -190°C without them 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. See the Scilabub Gloves in Action
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.
VIDEO Why Should I Trust These Gloves?
Working with temperatures this low can cause serious damage to your hands and arms, so you'll want to know that you can trust what these gloves say. In order to do that, these gloves have been tested to EN standards EN 388 and EN 511, measuring their resistance to mechanical threats and the cold. They achieved the following scores:
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 N/A 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. 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 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. If you are concerned that the gloves aren't long enough, then you can always buy Frosters Gloves with longer arms.
Are They Available in Longer Sizes?

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.
