Minus Works Introduces Plant-Based Leak-Proof Gel Packs

Minus Works

Islandia, New York-based Minus Works has announced the introduction of plant-based, leak-proof gel packs for shipping perishables.

The new refrigerant gel formulation features a biodegradable, plant-based gel that is semi-solid and will not leak or flow if the containment film is broken or punctured.

This gel is a 32°F refrigerant for protecting perishables at frozen or refrigerated temperature ranges. Suitable applications include meal kits, online grocery, specialty food delivery, heat sensitive healthcare products, biopharma and thermosetting chemicals

“We see this product as a sustainable alternative to the Freezer Brick, which many shippers use as a leak-proof refrigerant that keeps its shape over freeze/thaw cycles,” said Ben Shore, CEO of Minus Works.

“Freezer Bricks are made with open cell phenolic foam, which is a pollutant of priority concern. We believe offering an eco-friendly product of equal performance can help provide shippers with greener options.”

Minus Works is an American manufacturing and technology company that is focused on bringing innovative products to the cold chain industry, including sustainable, high-performance gel packs for the shipping of perishables.
