Extreme Temps and Superior Glove®

Industrial Work Safety Hand Protection

This is part two in a series of articles about Cryogenics and three companies making innovative personal protection equipment for humans working with extremely cold temperatures. This article focuses on Superior Glove®, a Canadian glove company using innovation to make some of the most advance gloves on the market.

Superior Glove® is one of North America’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of multi-dimensional industrial work safety gloves. A respected source for thousands of customers, Superior Glove® has been in the business since 1910.

We start by looking at some of the cryogenic and extreme temperature gloves from Superior Glove®.

The first, the Snowforce™ Extreme Cold Cryogenic Glove features 3M™ Thinsulate™ and a Porelle™ waterproof liner to trap body heat while allowing moisture to escape. Designed for the extreme cold, these cryogenic gloves are perfect for lab work where dry ice and other cryogenic specimens are handled. Lightweight and comfortable to wear, they are constructed with an extended cuff for extra protection and provide nearly 4 ½ minutes of direct contact with dry ice.

For more extreme conditions, try the Snowforce™ Cryogenic Leather Palm Gloves. These premium gloves feature an abrasion-resistant elk grain leather palm for greater gripping capacity and improved dexterity. They also feature 3M™ Thinsulate™ and a Porelle™ waterproof liner to contain body heat while wicking away moisture. Designed for the extreme cold, these cryogenic gloves are perfect for cryogenics laboratories and other settings where extremely cold materials are being handled. As with most Superior Gloves, they are lightweight and comfortable to wear to reduce fatigue. These gloves are constructed with an extended cuff for extra protection and provides almost 10 minutes of contact with dry ice!

Not all situations are going to call for the most extreme hand protection. For situations that do not call for direct material handling, but do call for working in extreme temperatures, Superior Glove® SnowForce™ Freezer Gloves are ideal.

Whether you are transporting freezer or refrigerated goods, working on heavy equipment, moving building supplies or simply performing outdoor maintenance, SnowForce™ Freezer Gloves will help you stay warm in cold conditions to -13°F. These SnowForce™ grain cowhide gloves provide comfortable, dependable hand protection. Constructed of durable split-leather with double leather palm and thumb patch for increased wear and protection. Extra-long orange knitwrist cuffs seal in warmth and keeps the cold out. Full Thinsulate™ lining adds almost twice the insulation value of down, without being water-absorbent; gloves retain their insulating ability even in damp conditions. SnowForce™ gloves are a real asset to the worker exposed to winter elements, or any type of cold conditions.
