Self-activating temperature indicators for integrity of goods
01 July 2019
Kite Packaging has launched temperature indicators as it continues to build its temperature sensitive packaging range.
Employee-owned business, Kite Packaging, has released its new temperature indicators to help businesses accommodate a maintained temperature in transit.
These new temperature indicators are small self-adhesive labels that go inside chilled packaging to facilitate contents that need to be kept at a certain temperature.
Kite’s temperature indicators monitor the temperature throughout a specified time period and indicate when their maximum threshold has been breached. Each indicator also informs users how long the contents have been above the specified threshold temperature.
Temperature indicators are commonly used with many food, pharmaceuticals and medical products to show the accumulated time-temperature history of a product.
There are two specifications available to choose from, food temperature indicators and pharmaceutical temperature indicators, ranging from temperatures 5-8 °C and have varied time frames.
These new temperature indicators are another addition for the business’s new chilled packaging range, which features enviro-friendly insulated boxes, insulated box liners, ice packs, thermal pallet overs and temperature controlled pouches.
