Custom designs to meet your needs.
Sonoco ThermoSafe’s ISCLabs® has been a leader in innovative design and testing services within the temperature assurance packaging industry for 26+ years. Our cutting edge thermal modeling capabilities enable rapid development of highly optimized custom solutions. Our modular ready-engineered platforms allow for hundreds of configurations using standard components resulting in short development times and cost optimization. Our thermal testing is accompanied by distribution testing to prove that each solution not only maintains temperature control, but withstands the rigors of distribution.
We have the largest platform of products manufactured in house which allows us to take a material neutral approach to our design and development processes. This includes the manufacturing and/or supply capability for Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), Polyurethane (PUR), Vacuum Insulated Panels (VIPs), as well as patented hybrid insulating technologies. Our manufacturing capability for water based gels, bricks, and advanced phase change materials (PCMs) provides flexibility to design products that result in the lowest total cost of ownership.
Advanced sustainable technology – PureTemp®
Our PureTemp phase change materials are patented natural vegetable based phase change materials which were developed under 5 years of research sponsored by the National Science Foundation and Department of Defense. PureTemp is engineered to react to a precise temperature, from -40° to 37° C, and to operate in a very narrow temperature range. PureTemp PCMs are the industry's only USDA Bio Preferred phase change material. These patented phase change materials are made from natural sources such as palm oil, palm kernel oil, rapeseed oil, coconut oil and soybean oil. They are nontoxic and biodegradable.
