Gel blankets are manufactured in master rolls 450mm wide. Consisting of small adjoining cells 75x90mm laminated together with plastic film on one side and non woven fabric on the other side, each cell contains a biodegradable, non toxic gel polymer that absorbs water on contact and swells up.

Before and After

Before and after immersion in water

If using for commercial transport/shipping of food or medical products it is critical to place frozen ice blankets above food or medical products as cold air falls. For optimum cooling avoid dead spaces and place additional ice blankets at the bottom and along the sides of the shipping container.

Gel Ice Blankets have the ability to maintain temperatures of perishables between 2°C to 16°C. To determine the amount of frozen blankets required to achieve this, we recommend that shipping and storage test be conducted.

Product Life


The uses for the Gel Ice Blanket are as broad as your imagination

With care gel ice blankets may be used over and over again making them very economical and effective. The actual life of this product will depend on the extent of usage.

Over time some moisture will be lost during evaporation, simply soak in water to re-hydrate cells prior to freezing or heating.


If leakage occurs flush away with water, cut off damaged cells and dispose.
