'Frosters' cryogenic gloves
Sizes : Small, Medium, Large
'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.
The 'frosters' range is available in three styles; mid-arm, elbow and shoulder length and in small, medium and large sizes.
