Designed in Australia, Techni Ice has become a big hit with
outdoor enthusiasts. Techni Ice Australia has expanded their product line of Ice
by making variations of this unique package and also produce cooler boxes and
bags. Today you can find Techni Ice throughout the world.
Ice 4ply comprises of 2 non-woven textile layers, which encapsulate a specially
formulated cross-linked polyacrylate polyalcohol co-polymer refrigerant combined
with a post treated trade secret formula.
An additional 2
heavy duty plastic layers, containing a one-way microperforation technology are
bonded to the textile layers. This ensures that this new model can withstand the
harshest of operational climates with performance that can only be described as
Ice utilises a cross-linked polyacrylate polymer that can be frozen right
down to minus 190C (that's more than twice as cold as dry ice!).Techni Ice
is often frozen in blast freezers to minus 80C when used in dry ice
can be used hot, cold or frozen and can not only keep your food and drinks
icy cold for days on end in cooler but is also very effective at reducing
battery consumption when placed in 12 volt fridge/freezers due to its eutectic
qualities,which minimise thermostat activity.
Ice can be used by placing one or two sheets in a 12V fridge/freezer to
effectively reduce battery consumption and increase general efficiency. When
Techni Ice is used in this manner it can also be left in the fridge/freezer
whilst the power is turned off overnight to further reduce battery consumption
whilst still maintaining basic refrigeration. Techni Ice sheets can be placed in
a separate ice box for use when away from the vehicle or boat, etc.
Cleaning: Techni Ice is fully washable and nothing
permanently adheres to the plastic outer plies. We found it extremely easy to
wash off dirt, food stains, and fish slim and blood. Most of the time just
blast the sheets with a garden hose in the yard will do the job, or in a kitchen
sink, use a sponge will make cleaning quick and easy.
Storage: When not in use, the
Techni Ice can be stored at room temperature or in the freezer. If you store
the sheets in your kitchen cabinet or such, put them in a plastic bag but leave
it open. When you need the Ice sheets, check to see if they need to be
hydrated, then either heat or freeze.
Our Experience: We use Techni
Ice in a 12v Waeco fridge as a 'Cold Bank'. In our experience it achieves all
the claims made for it as a domestic use product. How I'd get down to even minus
80 degrees C is completely beyond me so itís the home freezer only to chill 'em
