Split-leather SnowForce™ cryoprotective gloves with a Thinsulate™ lining. Available in a large (9) one-size-fits-all. Sold in pairs.
Superior manufacturer’s code: 678AFTLK
This level of protection is expressed by a pictogram followed by four numbers, in this case 4244, where the resistance to abrasion is 4/4, the cut resistance is 2/5, the tear resistance is 4/4 and the puncture resistance is 4/4.
Regarding thermal protection, this glove scored 32X, which means it provides a resistance to convective cold of 3/4, a level resistance to contact cold of 2/4 and the X means it is waterproof.
This cryoprotective glove is quite something to wear out and offers an unparalleled protection against cold, cuts and other mechanical hazards. Palms and thumbs are reinforced with a second layer of split-leather and the long and stretchy orange knit cuffs traps the heat inside the glove. The glove is completely lined with Thinsulate™ which doesn’t absorb perspiration thus ensuring dry and warm hands.Moreover, its Gunn cut feature, a design often used by workers from all walks of life since its almost seamless features with seams only at the top of the hand allows a better resistance to abrasion, wear and tear.
Side-split leather properties:
Side-split leather comes from the slitting of thicker hides in two sheets: the surface of the skin, the finest part known as ‘full grain’ is the real leather as opposed to the subsurface, known as split-leather. Split-leather is quite resistant to abrasion, but thicker and may feature a more raw aspect and irregularities.
Thinsulate™ is a unique material made of microfibers which insulates by trapping air molecules between the skin and the outside of the protective clothing. Indeed, the key to the right insulation is air pockets and the more air a material traps in a given space‚ the better it insulates you from the cold outside air. It’s quite easy: when the body sweats, water molecules in gaseous form and heat are liberated. That heat pushes by conduction the water molecules out of the Thinsulate™ lining, thus out of the protective gear. This is how Thinsulate™ is breathable, non-absorbent and easily washable. Thinsulate™ is considered to be the best insulating material with a 9/10 score. It is moreover the most compact insulation to this day which provides an excellent dexterity compared to other insulating materials. Thinsulate™ is the number 1 choice for workers in extreme and cold conditions.
This glove are recommended for workers in refrigerated warehouses, on construction sites in winter conditions, for agriculture and ranching activities, in cryogenic laboratories, to handle parts that may be cold and even for cryogenic cleaning.
Do not use for:
Of course, this glove offers no sure protection against frostbites, cuts, wear, tear and puncture so mechanical risks should not be overlooked.
Maintenance and service life:
It is not recommended to wash this glove since water and soap tend to rob leather of its natural oils which makes it stiffen and become brittle. If the nature of your work requires that you wash them, we recommend that you dry clean them.
