Croda's low temperature phase change materials are perfect for use in the packaging and storage of temperature sensitive goods. The CrodaThermTM products in this range can be used to fill rigid or flexible containers and placed in close proximity to products to provide better temperature regulation.
CrodaThermTM 5 and CrodaTherm 6.5 can be used as a temperature regulator for the following:
- Blood products
In the majority of these applications, the required temperature
is just above 0ºC and traditionally, water ice is used as the temperature
regulating material. Because water ice melts at 0ºC, goods can be damaged by
the freezing temperature and care will have to be taken to keep the goods away
from direct ice contact. Extra tanks of moderating liquid water may also have
to be used to keep the temperature above 0ºC, increasing mass and shipping
CrodaTherm 5 and 6.5 removes the risk of freeze damage and have
high latent heat capacities, making them ideal for temperature sensitive
shipping applications without large increases in mass.
