Arlington Heights, Ill. – Sonoco ThermoSafe, a unit of Sonoco (NYSE:SON) and a leading global provider of temperature assurance packaging, has launched a new reusable bulk insulated container featuring a 1,200 mm x 800 mm footprint and 440 liters of storage capacity for storing and distributing dry ice and perishable goods globally.
“Our latest bulk insulated container uses advanced technologies in foam adhesion and sidewall construction design, yielding a significant improvement in prolonging dry ice sublimation. Additionally, our innovative lid seal and gasket design greatly minimize moisture infiltration, yielding dry ice pellets of superior quality,” said Joe Laxamana, general manager of Sonoco ThermoSafe’s reusable bulk insulated container business.
