CRYO GLOVES® protect from -160°C (-250°F).

2. Are CRYO GLOVES®, CRYO INDUSTRIAL® GLOVES and CRYO APRON® washable?

Yes, they can be machine washed and dried on a gentle cycle. However, we recommend air drying for the waterproof styles.

3. Are CRYO GLOVES® autoclave-able?

Yes, but there is approximately 4% shrinkage with steam autoclaving.

4. Are the gloves approved for clean rooms?

CRYO GLOVES® can be cleaned to a class 1000 clean room rating. All items should be cleaned in a Class 10 clean room laundering facility.

5. Can the gloves be used to handle liquid nitrogen?

Yes, we recommend the waterproof styles for liquid nitrogen to protect against splashes. Gloves should be loose fitting with adequate cuff length to protect as much of the arm as necessary during different operations. No gloves, including CRYO GLOVES®, are recommended for immersion in liquid nitrogen.

6. Can the gloves be used with liquid oxygen?

CRYO GLOVES® will protect to the necessary temperature range and can be used for closed systems. Antistatic protection should be worn while handling free-flowing liquid oxygen.

7. For which applications would you recommend CRYO GLOVES® over
Waterproof CRYO® GLOVES?

Standard CRYO GLOVES® provide protection when working with closed cryogenic systems…where there is no risk of exposure to cryogenic fluids.

8. When would you recommend using Waterproof CRYO® GLOVES?

Waterproof CRYO® GLOVES are necessary when there is the possibility of exposure to cryogenic liquids.

9. When would you recommend using CRYO INDUSTRIAL® GLOVES?

CRYO INDUSTRIAL® GLOVES were designed for use in any environment where durability and high abrasion resistance are necessary, i.e. delivering cylinders of cryogenic liquids, attaching metal mesh-covered hoses, maintaining cryogenic systems, cold treating metals, driving forklifts or stocking shelves in freezers.

10. If I call the company will I get a human being to answer my questions?

Yes you will. Please call any weekday between 9.00 AM and 5 PM and someone will
Cheerfully answer any questions.
