Thermoshield Ice Packs FAQ's
What food transport solutions does Thermoshield offer?
At Highgate Group, we offer four Thermoshield product ranges: ice packs, ice blankets, pallet ice blankets and desiccant bags and strips. All Thermoshield ice packs and ice blankets are made with the same specially formulated cooling gel and feature a unique cell design that is flexible when frozen.
The main difference is the number of cells e.g. ice packs have three to six cells while blankets have nine to 15 cells. For pallets, we recommend opting for a pallet blanket for more coverage.
What can Thermoshield ice packs and blankets be used for?
Thermoshield ice packs can be used for transporting products using air, sea or road freight and are suitable for fresh produce, perishables, food products, dairy products, seafood, fish and meat products, and any other goods that need to be kept at a cool temperature during transit.
Can I order custom sized Thermoshield ice packs?
Yes! as manufacturers of Thermoshield, we can custom design an ice pack to suit any sized carton. For all custom product enquiries, please contact the Highgate Group team on 1800 089 456.
Are Thermoshield gel ice packs hard to use?
Thermoshield ice packs take the hassle out of shipping food. Thermoshield ice packs and ice blankets are delivered in ventilated cartons that can be placed directly into your freezer. No need for time consuming soaking or seperating. Thermoshield ice packs and blankets are flexible when frozen so you can easily mold them around the products. This makes the ice pack easier to use and also ensures no pockets of warm air get trapped inside the carton, which can lead to product spoilage. Alternatively, Thermoshield ice packs and blankets can be delivered frozen, straight to your door. Please contact the Highgate Group team on 1800 089 456 for more information.
Can Thermoshield ice packs pop or be damaged?
It is exceptionally difficult to damage Thermoshield ice packs — after all, they’re designed to be reused over and over again. The multi-layer outer film provides high puncture resistance and the packs have high-quality seals so there’s no risk of spillage or spoilage.
Can I use Thermoshield gel packs for overseas shipping?
Absolutely. Thermoshield gel packs are designed for both national and international shipping, so you can be rest assured knowing your products will not spoil in transit.
How do I dispose of Thermoshield ice packs?
Thermoshield reusable gel packs contain a non-toxic, environmentally-friendly biodegradable gel. We recommend reusing them for as long as possible to make them even more economical and reduce your business's environmental impact.
If you do need to dispose of gel ice packs for food, follow these steps:
1. Thaw — Ensure the ice pack is completely thawed.
2. Snip — Snip each cell of the ice pack.
3. Add — Pour gel into a sink or bucket (you can also throw it into your garden).
4. Mix — Add a teaspoon of salt (or more if required) and mix until the gel turns to water.
5. Pour — Add water and flush it down the sink or pour the liquid over your garden. The sodium polyacrylate in the liquid is great for increasing water retention in the soil.
6. Bin — Discard the outer packaging onto your kerbside waste bin. Alternatively, the entire pack (including the gel) can be safely thrown in the bin.
