WHATíS A CHILLCO DRY GEL ICE PACK?
The key ingredient of the Chillco dry gel ice pack is Sodium
Polyacrylate which is an amazing water absorber. It can absorb 200
to 300 times its own weight in tap water (even more if the water is
distilled) and stores it in a gel form.
The benefit of this is that the gel does not release any fluid so
you can create an ice substitute which doesn't thaw like normal
block ice does.
In other words, when the Chillco dry gel ice pack
eventually thaws out, you wonít have any melted ice water at the
base of your ice box. Chillco dry gel ice packs are a combination of polyester and a non woven fabric which holds the Sodium Polyacrylate
powder in the cells. When it is soaked in water it absorbs measured
quantities of water which can be frozen and used to replace block
The end result is "ice" which doesn't leave melted ice pools and
provides very efficient cooling abilities.
The dry gel ice packs remain flexible once frozen. This means it can
easily wrap around the interior walls of an ice box cooler as well as
individual bottles and cans. The polymer used is a non toxic and
compliant for direct food contact. No more need for block ice
The Chillco Dry Gel Ice packs are now recognised
as one of the most advanced ice packs available on the market due to their ability
to freeze as cold as the freezers capability, not to -1 or just
below as block ice does. The colder the freezer, the colder the ice
pack, the longer it lasts. In fact, if you had a freezer that could
freeze to -190 degrees Celsius, then your Chillco dry gel ice pack
would also freeze to -190 degrees Celsius. Try and beat that!

Having said that, if you touch an ice pack that cold, your
fingers would probably snap off like Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Terminator.
So you probably donít want it to be as cold as that. A normal
domestic freezer freezes to -18 degrees Celsius and that will be
more than enough for everyday usage.
WHY ARE CHILLCO DRY GEL ICE PACKS THE BEST?
Our ice packs are
supplied dehydrated which means they are as light as a few
pieces of paper and make it easy to post. When soaked in luke
warm water for 10 minutes, they create an incredible 1.2kg ice
pack unlike other dry ice packs that only hydrate to 860 grams!
Our packs have larger cell sizes at 75mm X 75mm, others are only
64mm X 70mm or even smaller!
Unlike other similar products on the market, our Chillco dry gel ice packs have polyester both sides of which one side is
slotted to allow for faster hydrating.
They are re-usable, clean and hygienic. Our customers tell us
that they hydrate quicker than our competitorís ice packs and
they wonít stick together when stacking in the freezer.
So, larger cell sizes, faster hydrating, re-usable, clean,
hygienic and a hydration capacity 40% heavier than our
competitors, your search for the perfect dry ice pack is over.
It really is a no brainer!
