Characteristics of the isothermal container 210 GN 8

The 210 GN 8 isothermal container is made of expanded polypropylene, like all our isothermal containers. It complies with the European food standard Gastronorm 1/2. It is ideal for food storage and with an ideal size for professional chefs. The capacity is 20 liters. It is resistant to temperatures between -40 and +110 degrees. It is free of chlorofluorocarbons (CFC). It is not toxic. It is 100% recyclable and is reusable.

How is expanded polypropylene processed?

The pspanso polypropylene used in the production of Polibox® is an ecological material: it is made of 98% air and is recyclable. During the production of expanded polypropylene, the pearls are swollen up to 50 times their initial volume by putting them in contact with hot water vapor and nothing else. Chlorofluorocarbons are not used for production or for transformation. Therefore, expanded polypropylene does not cause damage to the environment, either through production or as a raw material, as it consists of air and only 2% of pure hydrocarbon structural material.

The Expanded Polypropylene is composed of 98% of air, is recyclable and has a excellent ecological balance. The starting material is oil. For the production of EPP, the pearls are made swell up to 50 times their initial volume by putting them in contact with water vapor and nothing else. Therefore no chlorofluorocarbons are used for the production or processing. The EPP will not cause damage to the environment neither to production nor as a raw material, since it was created by air and only by 2% of structural material of pure... Read more
EPP-PPE is expanded with CO2 and has no residual expansion agents. Has a closed cell structure that gives it excellent characteristics of dissipation, energy and good recovery of the original shape. Polibox® containers are suitable to protect against thermal stress thanks to the insulating properties of the expanded polymer which it possesses a resistivity coefficient (Lambda) of 0.039 W/mk and guarantees a thermal drop of 1.5 - 2.5...

The EPP is totally 100% recyclable, even with various cycles, until it is disposed. The EPP can be burned with other solid urban waste without producing poisonous or acid substances, being the combustion gases only CO2 and H2O. In addition, 1 kg of expanded polypropylene saves around 1.3 kg of fuel in the operation of the incinerator. It is also possible to dispose the containers in normal landfills without, even in this case, affecting on the environment, since the product is chemically neutral and does not pollute neither air nor groundwater. On the contrary, it can be said that these manufactured goods, crumbled together with solid urban waste, with their huge air content help the decomposition of organic... Read more
Both the eutectic plates and the gels are heated either by immersion in water at 80 ° C, or by a preservative oven at a maximum temperature of 80°C for at least 1 hour. It is not possible to use other heating modes and above all microwave ovens cannot be... Read more
Cooling occurs by using a freezer. The residence time of the eutectic plates and or of the gel in the freezer must be at least 12 hours. The eutectic plates with operating temperature -21°C must be "activated" in the freezer at a temperature of at least -28°C, while the other products, both the plates with operating temperature at -12°C and the gels, are activated at a freezing temperature of at least - 20°C. (This piece of information is essential because there is a bit of confusion among customers who use them, especially between -12°C and -21°C... Read more
All the isothermal containers of the POLIBOX line are suitable for transporting frozen products. It is recommended to pre-cool the container before starting... Read more
Yes. POLIBOX isothermal containers are suitable for the transport of any kind of food.
The eutectic plates and gels are "thermal energy accumulators" and they are functional for maintaining the required transport temperatures. They are used to increase the thermal mass inside the containers in order to maximize the efficiency of the product-container system, extending the duration of the transport... Read more
They are suitable for that kind of use. The Crystal GN 1/1, for example, is a robust, low-weight container that complies with the UNI 12571 standards. It differs from the other Polibox containers for the perfect smooth, rigid and waterproof crystallized interior. The easy open system facilitates opening, while the lower handles ensure convenient...

Polibox isothermal containers transport food at controlled temperatures without interrupting the cold or heat chain. They allow to transport both hot and cold foods. POLIBOX containers are so-called "passive" containers, which use, in order to function, the thermal energy that belongs to the products to be... Read more
The average temperature resistance of a Polibox container is 3 hours. It is important to understand that POLIBOX EPP containers are “passive”, they work using the "thermal energy" of the product they contain. It is very important, in order to obtain the maximum performance in the duration of transport (for fresh goods, for hot and frozen ones), fill the container at least for three quarters of its volume. Foodstuff at the correct temperature and once closed the lid, the container should not be opened until its destination. The regulations prescribe that the correct operating temperatures must be maintained for at least 3 hours and the Polibox containers fully satisfy this condition, also certified by accredited laboratories. It is possible to increase the duration of the transport time by adding eutectic plates, suitably heated and / or cooled with respect to the required transport temperature.
