Kite Packaging introduces new chilled packaging range

Employee-owned business, Kite Packaging, has introduced a new, innovative chilled packaging range to its product offering.

The new temperature controlled range includes five different products that offer high quality, thermal protection for a wide variety of temperature sensitive goods on the market.

When it comes to transporting produce from the food and drink industry, it can often prove challenging to maintain their desired temperature.

Kite’s new enviro-friendly insulated boxes are produced from materials with insulating properties that outperform polystyrene. The outer layer is produced from 100% recyclable, Kraft paper and the internal layer is made up of 100% biodegradable starch-based loose fill that preserves the in-the-box temperature and also provides cushioning protection.

The next product Kite has launched is its new insulated box liners. These are comprised of a metallised polyester outer layer to reflect heat away from the product, a bubble wrap middle layer to provide an interval of cushioning insulation and an inner HDPE foam layer offering high resistance against moisture and chemicals as well as further insulation.

For businesses who are distributing large pallet size quantities of stock requiring a temperature sensitive environment through transit, the Kite team recommend their new thermal pallet covers. These are equipped with the same properties as the insulated box liners.

Other essential chilled packaging solutions that can help maintain temperatures on the road are coolants. Ideal for overnight shipments, Kite’s new ice sheets and gel packs will maintain low, internal temperatures to ensure products such as food, fish and pharmaceuticals remain fit for purpose.

The gel packs simply require freezing, whereas the ice sheets need to be submerged in water for activation, turning them in to a gel pack which can then be frozen.

The final thermal product the Kite team have introduced is their temperature controlled pouches which act as effective insulating protection for smaller items for a shorter length of time.
