Q: what is this made of

submitted by A - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi A - I appreciate your interest in this set of cold packs. These cold packs are made from plastic. Thanks for reaching out! - Chris

  • A: Instant cold packs are made out of ammonium nitrate or calcium ammonium nitrate and a small pouch of water in a plastic pack/bag, when the pack is crushed by hand the two mix and an endothermic reaction occurs and voila, you have a cold pack for about 20-30mins. If you're wondering, yes you can take these on planes.

Convenient for being out and about with chronic pain or post-op pain. Also useful to keep on hand during outdoor summer events for those with sensory issues or heat sensitivity.

I recently had surgery and used Medline's instant cold packs in the hospital. Normal ice packs have not worked for me for this use case at all. I got these are a holdover while waiting for a case from Medline to arrive and they work great. You shouldn't expect an instant cold pack to last more than 15-20 minutes, nor should you expect it to be extremely cold. These get the same level of cold as a standard ice pack, last 15-20min at optimum temperature before they start to get less cold (probably 30min before they begin to warm, pending your body and the environment temps), and have had no trouble with leakage. Any instant pack can be finicky to pop. You need to kinda feel for the big chunk, gold the pack over, and gradually push until you feel it pop. Taking a hammer to it is, frankly, stupid, and it's not effective in any way. Sometimes it takes a little extra effort to find the pop, which even nurses struggle with on occasion. Once you get it, which is fairly quick most of the time anyway, you shake it and it's instantly cold. Personally, I'm impressed by the generic brand working nearly as well as Medline's. If they offered a pack with more or were cheaper, I'd have considered these. I really like that the exterior is papery and not plastic. I put that in a pillowcase for the protective layer and definitely preferred the paper version.

Good idea for emergency kit but I find it difficult to break packs to make them cold. I even tried a hammer to no avail. Finally strong hubby sweetly squeezed the pack to release cold therapy.

I use these as cold therapy for panic attacks. I always carry them in my purse and when I feel an attack coming on I use it on the back of my neck and hold them in my hands. They get freezing cold which is great but only stay extremely cold for 10-15 min.

My kids love the novelty of smashing these cold packs to activate them. They get cold, but the don't get as cold and stay as cold as an ice pack with actual ice in it. I keep them in my car for emergencies.

So cold! I bought these packs for our medicine box and I am so happy I did. I sprained my lower back at the gym today and this cold pack is just what I needed. It gets VERY cold and is a decent size. It is so convenient too. I can barely walk atm so running back and forth to the freezer is a no go but these packs can sit on my bedside table until I need them. They are pretty easy to pop and mess free. I am going to buy more and 100% recommend them

I purchased this Up and Up instant cold pack for the first aid kit. I ended up using one for my kid during a basketball game. As soon as I punched the bag in the middle, it turned cold lightning fast! Worked very well and lasted long enough to ice a minor injury. I recommend this product for your first aid kit!
