Cryogenic Protective Gloves
CryoGuard Standard Series Gloves are designed to provide protection to minus 160 degrees Celsius. They are comfortable, flexible, lightweight, and water resistant.
Industries and Applications: CryoGuard Standard Series Gloves are designed for the handling of aluminum canes, cryo boxes and vials, blood bags and cassettes, and dry ice. CryoGuard Standard Series Gloves can be utilized in low temperature environments within the pharmaceutical, medical, industrial, and food industries.
Available 2 gloves sizes and 3 length types.
No gloves, including CryoGuard Standard Series Gloves are recommended for immersion in liquid nitrogenLearn More About This Product
CryoGuard gloves are multi layer insulated gloves designed to provide protection to the
hands and arms from the hazards encountered when working with ultra cold or cryogenic materials.
They are light weight, flexible, durable, clean, allow for excellent dexterity even at the coldest
temperatures, can be worn for extended periods, and are extremely warm.
The CryoGuard line of gloves for cryogenic applications are manufactured in two configurations:
Standard Series Water Repellent and 100% Waterproof Series. The Standard Series is recommended for
use where the protection requirement is mainly against cold as opposed to protection against splashing
or dripping liquid, in which case the Waterproof Series would be recommended. Under no
circumstances should any of these gloves be submerged directly in liquid nitrogen or used with
liquid oxygen. All of these gloves are designed to provide protection against the hazards of extreme
cold. These gloves should not be confused with work gloves designed for heavy wear.
The CryoGuard gloves were designed to be used in cryogenic temperatures ranging from -85oC to -
196oC in areas where cryogenic gases, low temperature freezers, dry ice, cold rooms and cryogenic
dewars & auto-fill tanks are in use. Applications for these gloves can be widely found in industries
including medical research, biotech, aerospace, food processing, pharmaceutical research &
manufacturing, and within clinical hospital laboratories.
The sequence of insulating layers is the same for both series of gloves. The
insulating fabric utilized is 3M C200 with a temperature preservative parameter of 2.5clo. This consists
of three layers: two layers of insulation material are bonded together at the edges of each piece enabling
insulating air to be trapped without adding additional weight or bulk and is then complimented with an
inner lining that adds insulating value and is specifically designed to wick moisture away from the skin.
The Waterproof Series gloves incorporate a thin seamless, 100% waterproof inner protective layer.
The Wrist style gloves on both Series also incorporates an uninsulated knit cuff.
