FLEXIBLE ICE BLANKET is the original and most hygienic ice product to keep food cold for meal deliveries, fish and even live crabs and is used by Meals on Wheels throughout Australia. It is also used by Immunization Organizations for the transportation of sensitive pharmaceutical items and vaccines. You can use ‘Flexible Ice Blankets’ to wrap around perishables when doing your home shopping, children’s lunches or to prolong food staying frozen longer, especially when travelling. When camping, simply layer in our Sof-Pac® bag or Esky Cooler between sheets of frozen Flexible Ice Blankets for optimum chill factor.
Flexible Ice Blankets are more versatile than an ice pack because it is a flexible blanket of ice which can be wrapped around food and bottles ensuring they are totally insulated to stay cool longer. They are the best ice alternative when you discover how to keep things cool and frozen without everything floating in melting ice. While one ice crystal remains in the cell the temperature is still 0°C.
The ‘Flexible Ice Blanket’ film is a food grade and non-toxic product approved by HACCP. The liquid in ‘Flexible Ice Blanket’ is also food grade, non-toxic and will not contaminate any product should the cells be punctured.
The ‘Flexible Ice Blanket’ is made up of separate cells which distribute the cold evenly eliminating any hot spots. Unlike traditional gel and ice / cold packs the ‘Flexible Ice Blanket’ system will continue to work even if several cells are ruptured as only a minimal percentage of the chill factor is lost.
Unlike crystals which need to be soaked, the ‘Flexible Ice Blanket’ does not need to be hydrated and will not absorb any spills. It can be washed with mild detergent or bleach after each use avoiding any build up of germs and bacteria causing odours. Just place back in your freezer overnight ready to be used again and again. ‘Flexible Ice Blanket’ will last for years when due care is taken.
