Strong and waterproof cooling packaging to enhance insulation performance
The CW Box consists of a structure of solid cardboard with sandwiched laminated wool layers to leverage the unique insulating features of wool:
By combining bio-based materials in a strong sandwich structure, our box achieves an insulation capacity superior to EPS. Depending on its structure, porosity and density, the thermal conductivity —the lower, the better the insulation capacity— of corrugated cardboard varies from 0.05 to 0.12 W/mk, which is then augmented by that of nonwoven wool (0.033W/mk), compared to the typical value of EPS, 0.04 W/mk. Our objective is to achieve a 10% better thermal conductivity of the CW box
The CW Box is coated with a novel bio-based lacquer of the bioORMOCER® class and PLA (polylactic acid). The coating is water-resistant to protect the box from harsh environment, biodegradable and has antimicrobial effects.
Sensors for better logistics. Temperature-sensitive particles that are part of CW Box provide information on the cooling chain temperature during transportation and location.
