About Gel Bags for Cold Packs

Gel Ice Packs

You have probably seen them; those gel bags for cold packs that come right out of the freezer. Some describe them as gel ice packs, gel-filled cold bags, among other names, or simply as ‘gel bags’.

It’s important to know that cold packs from TDI are specifically manufactured for gel contents, not for ice. They are made of extra strong material.

Characteristics of Gel Bags for Cold Packs

  • TDI’s ice packs are able to withstand extreme cold, freezing temperatures. They don’t crack or puncture easily in extreme conditions.
  • The plastic itself feels thick because it is made of heavy-duty material.
  • Due to their stretchability, they are flexible but tough.

Gel bags from TDI are strong and sturdy. By all means, you can trust that these plastic bags will get the work done once they come out of the freezer.

  • Since gel stays flexible, it will contour to any shape. On the other hand, frozen water (ice) becomes hard and unbendable.
  • Any printed information or images will not smear with moisture.
  • These plastic ice packs can be reused over and over again while being stored in a freezer.
  • Gel-filled ice packs are suitable to keep something cool, not frozen. They are suitable for perishable items that should not be frozen.  >> The Balance Every Day: “Things You Shouldn’t Freeze”
