You may not have heard of us before – that’s partly because we are one of the best kept secrets in our industry. But as the largest and most innovative producer of water and gel ice packs in the UK, Hydropac will without doubt have an ice pack to meet your individual requirements. With the largest range of off the shelf sizes and the ability to custom produce sizes and weights to your specifications – without additional tooling costs – you will not find a manufacturer this cool ever! We even work as a silent manufacturing partner for many of our competitors and large retailers, so you may well already be using our gel ice packs to keep your products cool.
So how are Hydropac different?…
We have designed and built our own specialised ice pack machinery that utilises an unrivalled dosing system, in addition to our own ‘Seal through Liquid’ technology. These allow us to accurately fill the ice packs to capacity. We have also developed a unique material blend that enables us to produce the strongest and most durable gel ice packs available; withstanding over 200kg of weight without bursting. This special material is fully recyclable and certified as completely food contact safe, unlike the traditional ‘Soak and Freeze’ products that stick together when frozen.
Hydropac ice packs are produced on site at our conveniently located factory in Buckinghamshire (UK) with either water, gel or our own unique phase change solution, designed to maintain food at frozen temperatures. Our large off-the-shelf range of ice packs are all produced from transparent/clear materials to reassure you and your customers that there is nothing to hide. However, if you would prefer a coloured ice pack or ice mat, then of course we can manufacture these to your taste at the advised minimum order quantity.
Quality comes as standard!
All of our ice packs have to pass rigorous quality control processes, including a 6-stage filtration process, before then being softened, chlorinated and UV light treated. This ensures your ice packs are the purest, cleanest and safest ice packs available. Because we feel that having the tightest and most robust quality control standards are so vitally important, that we decided to go one step further and send quality controlled samples of every single production run to an independent laboratory for microbiological testing. To that end, you should feel assured that we are the only company that can provide a full cleanliness and safety certification, for every single order leaving our factory.
Although we always favour the reassuring clarity of a transparent ice pack, we can supply them in any colour and even printed with your company logo and information. Printed and custom sized ice packs are always made to order and we offer unrivalled low minimum order levels starting from just 2 pallets.
