Formulation: Non-toxic, Non-caustic & Reusable
Our +30° F formula is used to keep products chilled for an average
duration of 24 – 48 hours in a well-insulated container. Other
formulations can be special ordered.
ice packs freeze at 5° F lower than water, requiring an average
freezing temperature of 28° F before use. Packs must be frozen solid
to achieve maximum results. Recommended freezing periods for gel
icepacks are 24 – 48 hours when laid out individually and 5 – 7 days
in cartons. Ventilation holes in cartons provide circulation and
shorter freezing times.
Uses for Gel Ice Packs
Gel ice packs are ideal for products that cannot tolerate the
melting water of ice or the extreme cold of dry ice.
ice packs are great for shipping or holding medical supplies, fresh
