Kite release affordable eco-friendly chilled packaging

When transporting temperature-sensitive items such as food or pharmaceuticals, insulating packaging is essential. Historically, polystyrene has been the only option, but Kite Packaging has recently released an innovative corrugated box liner.

This thermal lining is 100% recyclable, low-cost and boasts the same temperature controlling qualities as polystyrene. The company conducted a series of externally verified tests to confirm this, revealing that at room temperature (23°c) the corrugated liners can keep the contents of a box below 0°c for 35 hours while being used in conjunction with our gel packs.

The BC doublewall also provides shock absorption alongside thermal regulation to protect products from both damage and changes in temperature that may affect their integrity. The liners comprise of two pads for the top and bottom box faces and different sized packs for each side. When fitted to exactly match the interior of the corresponding sized box, every surface area of the box is thermally lined with a material designed to resist the influence of external conditions.
