The Benefits of Pelton Shepherd Gel Packs

The Best Gel Packs For Your Needs

Whether you need long-lasting ice packs for last-mile shipping or transporting perishables between intermediaries, you can trust Pelton Shepherd’s gel packs. Over the past 70 years, we’ve identified the challenges of cold chain shipping, from minimizing temperature deviations to maximizing cost and space efficiency, and we’ve learned how to solve them. We design our refrigerant solutions precisely to address the needs of cold chain shippers.

Learn more about our gel packs and their advantages below.

What Type of Ice Pack Do I Need

Durability You Can Depend On

Our gel packs have a tough, puncture-resistant exterior to reduce the risk of in-transit leaks and preserve product integrity. Our EcoGel ice packs offer an added layer of protection — a dense gel that won’t seep through if a small puncture occurs. 

You can also count on our gel formulations to support your temperature control requirements. We offer a range of eutectic points to meet your product’s shipping specifications, whether you require a 10F or a +32 F formulation. Our CuraTemp Pro ice packs, in particular, feature a self-insulating exterior to prevent temperature excursions and keep perishables cold or frozen — depending on the formulation you choose — throughout transit. 

Depending on ambient conditions and shipping container insulation, our ice packs can last for days. Still, we always recommend testing our gel packs before use to confirm that they will meet your requirements. We’re happy to provide samples of our gel packs — please contact us to learn more.

Peace of Mind Without the Cost

We offer economical options and customization opportunities to give you the reliable cold chain solutions you need without exceeding your budget. 

For example, our Glacier Ice™ gel packs are our most cost-effective refrigerant solution, ideal for everyday, one-way shipments. If you’re seeking a gel pack that’s both affordable and sustainable, consider our Vortec Ice™ gel packs.

All of our gel packs are available in various sizes to enable tighter pack-outs and, ultimately, lower shipping costs. 

Innovation That's Also Sustainable

At Pelton Shepherd, our commitment to sustainability fuels our drive for innovation. We’ve developed our TerraTemp line to provide unique, eco-friendly refrigerant solutions and simplify sustainability.

Some of our most notable TerraTemp products include Terra Ice™, the first and only truly compostable gel pack, and Enviro Ice™ cold packs. Enviro Ice™ contains gel that can also be used as plant fertilizer — enhancing the end-user experience and lessening the load on landfills.

Additionally, most of our gel packs are reusable. Reusable gel packs can be an excellent way to highlight environmental responsibility and improve brand perception. Note that Terra Ice™ gel packs are not reusable due to their unique compostable design.
