About CooliMate®

CooliMate® is an insulative foil lining that you can conveniently place inside a standard cardboard outer box. This lining maintains a consistent temperature within the pack for up to 72 hours.

CooliMate® foil lining also serves a dual purpose by cushioning the items within. This protects the contents from damage caused by potential mishandling during typical shipping processes.

Moreover, the flexibility and slim profile of CooliMate® as a packaging solution means that the overall product is lighter, allowing for reduced shipping costs. Both the foil and cardboard outer pack allow for easy storage, assembly, and increased space efficiency.

All these features make CooliMate® excel for any temperature-sensitive product, including food, pharmaceuticals and vaccines.

Environmentally friendly insulated packaging

Beyond the benefits of using CooliMate®, there is another significant advantage for your business and your customers – it is arguably one of the more environmentally friendly insulated packaging currently available.

Traditional materials like polystyrene and Styrofoam used in thermal insulated packaging are neither easily recyclable nor biodegradable, leading to environmental concerns when they end up in landfills.

This issue prompted the adoption of wool-based products, which are fully biodegradable. However, the wool element itself cannot be recycled, leaving users with the only option to compost it, which may not be convenient.

In contrast, CooliMate® uses a cardboard outer and a foil liner inner. These materials mean that your cardboard outer can be fully recycled and your inner liner can be reused, again and again.

Benefits of CooliMate® insulated packaging

The key benefits of CooliMate® insulated packaging include:

  • CooliMate® insulated packaging keeps products below -2ºc or between 2 – 8ºc for up to 72hrs.
  • CooliMate® insulated boxes are quick and easy to assemble, speeding up your packing time.
  • The foil lining reflects cold air back into the compartment and reflects heat outwards.
  • Minimises waste from a variety of sizes of boxes available.
  • Lightweight in comparison to Styrofoam and polystyrene, making shipping costs more affordable.
  • The insulation has a nominal thickness of 4mm, foil thickness at 8MY + 25MY PE and density of 200 gr/m2 (±5%).
  • The insulation also has a flame resistance grade of B2.
  • Insulation features an anti-corrosion coating grade of NC lacquer.
  • Considerably more environmentally friendly than Styrofoam or polystyrene.

The durable nature of the CooliMate® liner means that this packaging can be reusable over many trips.

CooliMate® is manufactured using multiple materials.

What is Coolimate?

Coolimate is a type of temperature controlled packaging that maintains the temperature of products, that may otherwise spoil, during shipping. It’s commonly used in food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and biotechnology industries, where products are required to maintain their quality and efficacy.

What is the purpose of Coolimate insulated packaging?

Coolimate thermal insulated packaging provides a great way of transporting temperature sensitive goods without the risk of the contents becoming spoiled, from heat, humidity, and mould.

What other types of insulated packaging are there?

Materials for thermal insulation boxes vary from cardboard with insulated liners made from foil or cardboard to Styrofoam and polystyrene boxes. The cardboard versions often save shipping costs by being lighter than their foam counterparts.

Should I use Coolimate instead of polystyrene?

Styrofoam and polystyrene boxes are not only bulky but are also difficult to recycle. CooliMate® and Tempguard are eco-friendly alternatives because you can recycle almost all the components via kerbside recycling schemes. As such, waste from the end-user’s perspective is minimal.
