Multilayer thermal blankets for temperature protection of time-temperature sensitive products
Thermal blankets for Euro pallets (80x120cm) and US-BLOCK pallets (40"x48")
Customer validated for (+2 to +30°C and +15 tot +25°C) pharmaceuticals in airfreight shipments
Protocol "BLANKETS" : How-to-use instructions
According to this protocol "Blankets" two thermal blankets are cut from the Temax insulation rolls. One of the blankets is placed on the pallet. The goods are placed on the blanket/ pallet and the blanket is folded upwards to protect the left and right side of the pallet. The second blanket is placed on the top and folded down-words to protect the top, front and back of the pallet. Both blankets and overlaps are sealed with tape to prevent potential cold bridges. Below you can find the steps which need to be followed according to this protocol "Blankets".

MOVIE / Protocol BLANKETS – insulating pallets
TEMAX thermal blankets for insulating pallets
- Very high temperature protection = HOT and COLD
- Material thickness Temax-4000 = 3,5 cm (1,38 inches) + 4 integrated reflection systems
- Unique thermal resistance techniques = same insulation performance as ca 10 cm thermal wool
- extreme airfield TARMAC temperature protection + solar power + greenhouse extremes
- Minimal impact on payload + waterproof + condense proof / product protection
- Minimal impact on ecological footprint = unique material + production techniques + recycling formula
- Worldwide validated by pharmaceutical manufacturers (+2°C to +30°C) and (+15°C to +25°C)
WORKSHEET "How-to-use" instructions
This worksheet contains the mayor user steps for packing time-temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals on Euro or US- Block pallets with Temax® thermal blankets. Please see complete detailed procedure in the protocol “Blankets” and T.R.M. “Temperature Risk Management” guidelines. Keep this worksheet in the direct proximity of the work space. The complete protocol and worksheet is available in PDF format. More information? Please send us an email.
Training & Education "Day-training" sessions + certificate
When a 3PL-provider or pharmaceutical manufacturer wants to implement the usage of Temax thermal blankets or thermal covers, the company Krautz-Temax provides specialized or customer dedicated “day-trainings” and education. This day-training contains a three hours theoretical course on thermal energy and temperature phenomena followed by a three hours practical training on wrapping and insulating procedures (protocols and S.O.P’s). The training set-up can be a standard Temax® protocol or a new protocol which is specially developed for a certain pharmaceutical manufacturer. (Training: English language at Krautz-Temax HQ) More information? Please send us an email.
S.O.P's "Standard Operation Procedures"
Please read the S.O.P's (TRM-plan) before you start the wrapping or insulating of the pallets. In the S.O.P's you can find more detailed information on the function of the overlaps and the sealing process which are crucial to avoid potential cold bridges or thermal bridges.
Insulation configuration (T1-S1-B1)
In this example the insulation configuration T1-S1-B1 was used which means that on all sides (Top, Sides, Bottom) one (1) layer of Temax-4000 insulation material was used. Please check the thermal energy calculations which were made for you which insulation configuration needs to be used for your transport or cold chain situation.
Temax multilayer insulation foil - thermal blankets - for temperature protection of pallets
The Temax multilayer insulation foils or thermal blankets are also used for temperature protection of time-temperature sensitive products against external temperatures. The insulation foils of thermal blankets function as a passive cooling system in which the own thermal energy of the products is used to offer a certain temperature preservation.
The time of the temperature preservation is hereby depending on the available thermal energy of the products combined with the insulation quality of the thermal blankets and the temperature difference to which the passive cooling system is exposed. The higher the insulation quality of the thermal blankets, the longer the temperature preservation.
Temax thermal blankets = high insulation + payload friendly + nature friendly
The Temax multilayer insulation foil or thermal blankets are mostly used in transport and logistics for the shipment and handling of time-temperature sensitive products such as pharmaceuticals, healthcare products, food products and perishables and chemical products. When these kind of products are transported or shipped with thermal blankets, two mayor issues are important being the temperature preservation, which determines the quality of the products, and the payload which will have an impact on the transport costs.
Experience shows that the Temax thermal blankets can offer an ideal co-relation between these two subjects due to its light weight and high insulation quality. This also explains why more and more companies are implementing the Temax thermal blankets as their standard temperature controlled logistics systems. The Temax thermal blankets are also 100% recyclable.
