Performance depends upon many factors: The type of IPC insulation you use along with the amount (lbs) of GelTech Refrigerant Gel Packs, but also:
- The temperature outside/weather conditions. Also referred to as ambient temperature.
- The temperature and amount (lbs) of preconditioned goods you ship (your product).
The answer is that GelTech Gel Packs will thaw in accordance with the amount of heat they encounter. The packs are designed to defrost slowly while they gradually absorb heat that surrounds them. Naturally, if there is more heat they will melt faster. So, the factors affecting melting will be:
- Type of insulated packaging the packs are placed in.
- The ambient temperatures the packs + insulation encounter.
- The temperature of adjacent goods (your product).
