Tempshield promises to put your safety first by developing and manufacturing the highest-quality cryogenic personal protection products. Guaranteed.

Tempshield has delivered on this promise from the start, when we pioneered an innovative design for high-quality, cryogenic personal protective apparel. We launched the first cryogenic glove in 1980, and since then Tempshield has continued to specialize in the exclusive development and manufacture of cryogenic personal protection apparel (PPE).

Tempshield’s focus on cryogenic safety led to the development of a line of personal protection products known worldwide for outstanding workmanship, maximum thermal protection, dexterity, and comfort. To ensure Tempshield’s high standard of quality, we monitor every phase of production from product development to distribution at our state-of-the-art facility located in the United States.

Tempshield’s innovative design for thermal protection apparel and unsurpassed workmanship has earned us the trust of the leading medical and scientific firms worldwide.

Tempshield personal protective apparel includes Cryo-Gloves, Waterproof Cryo-Gloves, Cryo-apron, Cryo-industrial Gloves and Cryo-industrial Aprons.

A Range of Functions, Superior Protection

  • Cryo-Gloves provide a high level of thermal protection from direct contact with cold objects and in cold atmospheres where there is no risk of exposure to cryogenic fluids.
  • Waterproof Cryo-Gloves provide a high level of thermal protection in cryogenic atmospheres where the exposure to cryogenic fluids might exist.
  • Cryo-Apron provides thermal and splash protection to the torso and legs.
  • Cryo-Industrial Gloves and Aprons provide a high level of thermal protection and abrasion resistance in cryogenic atmospheres where the exposure to cryogenic fluids might exist.

Superior Thermal Protection Stems from Tempshield’s Unsurpassed Workmanship

When safety and dexterity are paramount, people who work in hazardous ultra-cold environments are confident Tempshield products will keep them safe and protected. Our cryogenic gloves and aprons are designed for maximum thermal protection, dexterity, and comfort. Each product undergoes a rigorous series of inspections to ensure you have the very best thermal protection available.

Anyone handling cryogenic liquids should be familiar with the hazards presented by such materials and trained in how to handle them safely. Emergency procedures should be established and rehearsed, proper training in the operation of all equipment provided and knowledge and appreciation of hazardous properties of the materials instilled. Cryogenic liquids should never be handled without proper protective gear.

Generally recommended protective apparel for handling cryogenic liquids include the following:

  • Proper fitting gloves*
  • Protective face shield or goggles
  • Protective apron without pockets
  • Pants without cuffs
  • Shoes without laces or spats covering shoes and area unprotected by apron

Proper Fitting Gloves For maximum dexterity and safety, cryogenic gloves must fit properly. Although gloves should be loose enough to allow for quick removal if necessary, a glove that is too large impairs dexterity and function. A tight glove leads to thermal loss.
