This product is designed to measure how well a glove can withstand convective contact cold.
The hand size has been developed to match a standard porcelain hand model used for manufacturing gloves. It is made from carbon composite and is heated to provide a uniform surface temperature to simulate the surface of a human hand. There are two measuring zones – the hand and the forearm, separated at the wrist by a guard zone. Both areas are heated to the same temperature and the temperature loss of each one is recorded separately, providing data to measure the effectiveness of the gloves.
