- Drugs storage
- Scientific work
- Sub zero work
- Handling between 0°C to -190°C
Please note that these gloves aren't limited to these tasks. The gloves are recommended for any situation which requires protection against sub-zero temperatures.
What Temperatures Can the Scilabub Cryogenic -70°C Gloves Protect You From?
The Scilabub Cryogenic Gloves are suitable for use in sub-zero temperatures ranging from 0°C through to -190°C. As the gloves are waterproof, we would recommend using the gloves for handling dry or wet items. This also means that the gloves are suitable for use by vaccine handlers.
Why Can I Trust the Scilabub Frosters Cryogenic 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 |
|Hazard ||Level of Resistance |
|Contact Cold ||Level 2 |
|Convective Cold ||Level 2 |
|Water Permeability ||Level 1 |
What Does EN 511 Mean?
EN 511 means that the gloves are suitable for use in sub-zero temperatures. Contact cold means that you can use the gloves to handle cold items, while convective cold means that you can use the gloves in cold environments. Additionally, the level 1 in water permeability means that you can submerge the hands in water, no matter how cold.

How Do the Scilabub Frosters Gloves Work?
The Scilabub Gloves feature an outer layer of woven polyamide, which has a special 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 efficacy of a normal thermal fibre and a third waterproof lining, for submerging the hands. This then helps to minimise heat transfer without the material being too thick to handle materials.
How Dexterous Are the Scilabub -70°C Cryogenic Gloves?
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.
Are the Scilabub Gloves Waterproof?
The Scilabub Gloves are waterproof, making them suitable for submerging hands in water. The gloves receive a Water Permeability score under EN 511 of 1, meaning that they are completely waterproof. If you require the gloves in different sizes, please take a look below.
