Thermal Packaging

Thermal packaging is designed for temperature sensitive products that require a defined temperature to be maintained during transportation to the end user.

Thermal packaging comprises of an outer pack made of corrugated board, moulded polyurethane foam and frozen gel packs. 

The licensed and patented solution is designed to hold a pre-defined temperature range even when subjected to a range of external physical and thermal conditions in the supply chain.

Used widely for new drug therapies in the pharmaceuticals industry, where regulatory requirements and company liability demand reliability and repeatability.

We currently offer over 50 pre-qualified thermal packs, or they can be manufactured bespoke to your product and supply chain requirements. 

Thermal packs can also be printed with product or handling information.
