ThermoPod Introduces Protective Packaging That Enable Shippers to Reduce Their Packaging Footprint

Norfolk, NE: ThermoPod Protective Packaging introduces ThermoKeeper insulated box liners, the first and only cold chain packaging for food goods, beverage goods, and other temperature sensitive shipments made with ASTM tested and certified biodegradable components.

The company's environmentally green insulating liners are designed to create a temperature-controlled sipping system that is totally biodegradable, thermally sound, and that fit snuggly into a protective corrugated outer box.

The packaging is a smart, unique, highly efficient alternative to foam lined coolers and other non-biodegradable shipping containers. They will appeal to a growing customer base increasingly concerned about environmental hazards and difficulties related to the disposal difficulties of polystyrene based packaging waste. Adopting use of this new earth-friendly product will also contribute to the ability of the shipper to position itself as respectful of environmental and social responsibilities to the plant. 

The outer surface of ThermoKeeper box liner is a biodegradable waterproof poly film. The inner surface is a biodegradable perforated poly film. An innovative proprietary ultra-insulating padding, which is also biodegradable, is sandwiched between the outer and inner films. The insulation is made from a carefully selected blend of cotton and wool recycled textile fibers that are purified, flocked, and bonded together, producing a soft natural ultra-insulating material.

The insulation also includes an EPA-approved anti-microbial additive for cross-contamination prevention and super absorbent fibers to help draw away unwanted condensation from thawing gel packs and provide auxiliary containment of accidental spills or leakage (helping prevent contamination of an entire payload of sample specimens).

The flocked cotton/wool insulation material is formed into a soft flat panel and is custom sized and laminated with a perforated poly film to form a unique two-piece pliable insulated box liner. The two part shipping system folds together and is compressed to ship flat for lower in-bound freight costs and efficient warehouse storage.

When ready for use, ThermoKeeper easily assembles into an air-tight, stand-up container with a full flap-over lid custom sized to fit snuggle inside customer shipping boxes.  After use, the container is easy to collapse for re-use or for eco-friendly disposal.

The company's authentically sustainable eco-friendly box liners and other packaging products, including ThermoPod mailers and pallets, are available through a variety of sources. The company is happy to work closely with customers to supply ThermoKeeper box liners of most any size or thickness to fit into customer cardboard shipping boxes.
