Why a flexible insulated BAG in BOX for cardboard boxes
Cardboard boxes are used to transport or ship all kind of goods. When temperature sensitive goods, such as food products or pharmaceuticals are shipped, the cardboard boxes are equipped with an insulation material to protect the temperature of the goods against unwanted external temperatures. In the past the use of polystyrene insulation was most commonly used yet due to the big disadvantages such as big volume at the sender and receiver, waste management, etc... more and more companies are looking for alternatives to ship their temperature sensitive goods.
The Temax insulation is such an alternative. The Temax insulation is a high insulation material which is flexible and foldable. When for use in boxes, the Temax insulation is produced as flat bags which are easily unfolded in the cardboard box. This gives the big advantage that the volume for storage at the sender is minimal. Also the receiver can unpack the insulation easily and fold it together to a small package so a minimal waste volume is created. The Temax insulation is also 100% recyclable.
Height regulating insulation for optimal temperature preservation
One of the big advantages of the Temax flexible insulated bags is height regulation when the products are smaller than the box. Both drawings on the left of this page show the difference of the set-up when the height cannot be adapted to the dimensions of the products. The standard set-up shows that a lot of air is packed together with the products when the insulation is not flexible or adapted to the height or volume of the products. When the temperature of the air (example warm) is different than the temperature of the products (example cold), the warm air will start to influence the temperature of the cold products as soon as the box is closed. This is avoided with the flexible Temax bag in box seeing the bag is flexible and therefore adapts itself to the product dimensions. The air is pressed-out of the thermal packaging during the packing.

How-to-use the insulated BAG in BOX
The by Temax developed insulated bag in box system is a very easy to use packaging system to pack and transport time-temperature sensitive or temperature controlled products such as fresh or frozen food products, chilled or ambient pharmaceuticals or healthcare products etc... The usage is actually very fast and easy. Fold the cardboard box, place the insulated bag in the box, load the products and close the bag. Fast, easy and efficient. The pictures below show how fast the insulated BAG in BOX can be used. Please notice to seal the insulated bag firmly so no air can float in or out of the insulated thermal bag (thermal bridges - cold bridges). Always place gel packs or ice packs on top of the products (cold temperatures sink down) and make sure that the products are pre-packed when placed in the insulated bag. The thermal insulated bag is a secondary packaging system.
