We are seeing hopeful media reports that the COVID-19 vaccine will be available soon.
To ensure that biological products retain their efficacy, they must be transported under stable conditions. Special cooler boxes and packaging materials made of particle foams, like airpop engineered air (EPS) or EPP, can offer added value.
Products made of particle foams are about 98% air, shockproof and capable of maintaining a stable temperature.
Transporting vaccines | Retaining efficacy
Transporting biological products down bumpy roads in very hot countries? Not a problem when they are encased in particle foams, such as airpop (EPS) and EPP.
Products made of particle foams are generally about 98% air, making them lightweight and shockproof. In addition, they are hygienic, resistant to chemicals and retain their shape. Due in part to their cellular structure, they have excellent thermal properties. Shipments of biological products can be kept at a stable temperature for many days.
- Constant temperature
Particle 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
Even after use, clean materials can be completely recycled over and over while retaining valuable properties. The material does not harm the environment and is perfectly aligned with the circular economy.
