Specializing in the design and manufacture of envelopes and plastic sleeves, HarryPlast tackles a new promising market: the shipment by post heat-sensitive health products (PST), such as vaccines, anti-allergens, insulin or hormones. In collaboration with Lisotherme, a young company Yvelines which granted the license to operate a cooling gel to the invention, the SMEs Saint Amand Les Eaux (CA: 4.75 million) has designed an envelope isotherm within which the temperatures remain between + 2 and + 5 Â° for at least 48 hours, the time it reaches its destination. What keeps cold chain necessary to guarantee the health of patients. According to Guillaume Petit, sales manager HarryPlast, there is no comparable offering on the market. "While conventional cooling solutions generate degradation products by exposing them to freezing temperatures, creating a phenomenon and freezing, our cooling gel eliminates this risk by restoring a temperature of zero degrees on the surface," says FranÃ§ois Ducrocq President of Lisotherme. Unlike commonly used insulated boxes, envelope HarryPlast does not require the intervention of carriers. A simple sufficient postage.
Consists of several layers of polyethylene film coated with two layers of insulation 40 mm thick, themselves embedded in a metallized plastic film, this new package is tear proof, waterproof, opaque and secured with a tamper-evident closure. Large internal welds to avoid product transported to approach the edges of the envelope where the presence of thermal bridges could reduce the performance of the gel. The two companies have worked for a year and a half to the new packaging. National Laboratory of Metrology and Testing (LNME) has validated the performance on the basis of the standard shipping temperature sensitive NF S99-700 ST48. Each bringing its expertise, and Lisotherme HarryPlast could optimize the technical performance of this isothermal plastic packaging and reduces design costs. Marketing has just started.
