MP Global Products' ThermoPod division has introduced new ThermoKeeper packaging liners for extended timeframe mail order shipments of chocolates, pies, cakes and other temperature-sensitive foods.
According to the company, the packaging liners save pallet and shelf space at retailers and fulfillment houses that would be occupied by bulky foam containers.
ThermoKeeper super-thick insulated packaging liners are resilient and pliable, store flat until ready for use and assemble quickly into packaging designed to fit comfortably in shipping boxes.
The box liners are said to be friendly alternatives to space-occupying foam coolers that can crack, chip or break prior to being fully packed and sealed.
The liners are made from a combination of recycled pre-consumer natural textile fibres formed into a soft flat panel laminated between a perforated and a solid film, enabling optimal performance with shipper's choice of coolant.
The packaging's waterproof poly film surface, which is un-perforated, has been designed to accommodate gel packs, and has tiny scores to allow any unwanted condensation or moisture from the gel packs to absorb moisture away from the payload.
Also included in the insulation are an EPA-approved anti-microbial additive and super absorbent fibres, for cross-contamination prevention and containment of accidental spills or undesirable condensation from thawing gel packs, respectively.
With a capability to achieve a substantial 60% to 70% on floor or shelf space, the ThermoKeepers can easily assemble in two easy steps into an air-tight, stand-up container with a full flap-over lid custom sized to fit inside customer shipping boxes securely.
ThermoKeeper packaging inner liners are made with a cotton insulation, which is biodegradable and has been tested to biograde within a year.
