Transport of COVID-19 vaccines | The crucial role of particle foams

COVID-19 vaccines are currently being distributed and the first vaccinations are taking place. Particle foams play a crucial role in this roll-out, during both the distribution and transport of these lifesaving vaccines.

Stable transport of COVID-19 vaccines | Particle foam cool boxes

Stable transport of COVID-19 vaccines is of vital importance, as this is the only way they retain their effectiveness. Special cool boxes and packaging materials made from particle foams, such as airpop engineered air (EPS) or EPP, ensure that COVID vaccines reach their destination safely and intact.

Particle foams have unrivaled thermal insulation

Particle foams generally consist of 98% air. The thermal insulation of this material is unrivaled, even at temperatures of -20 ° or even -70 ° Celsius, which is necessary to keep the vaccines in good condition.

Temperature remains constant for days

The temperature in medical cool boxes made from particle foams remains constant for up to several days. Particle foams are also shock resistant, hygienic, resistant to chemicals, dimensionally stable, lightweight and can be recycled easily many times. In this way, this durable material provides the best and highest quality protection for, in this case, the glass injection vials containing the COVID-19 vaccines.

  • Stable transport
  • Hygienic
  • Resistant to chemicals
  • Constant temperature
  • Lightweight
  •  

Thanks to these remarkable characteristics, particle foams are often used as protective packaging materials for pharmaceutical and medical transport, for example for the transport and protection of human organs, for surgical transplants and other applications.

PParticle foams are very sustainable

Particle foams are very sustainable, especially when compared to other materials such as cardboard. For example, much less water and energy is consumed during the production process.

In the logistics process, CO2 emissions are reduced and transport damage is kept to a minimum.

  • Lower CO2 emissions during transport, smaller carbon footprint
  • Sustainably produced: HSV uses 100% green power & steam
  • Circular, 100% recyclable, retaining valuable properties
