Our ice blankets are manufactured dry and ready for you to hydrate with your own water. They are made with two pieces of poly material that are sealed together to form cells, much like a quilt. One side is smooth and water proof. The other side is a very fine mesh that allows water into each cell. Inside the cells is an FDA-approved powder that quickly absorbs the water and transforms into a thick gel. Once in gel form, it is too thick to leak out of the mesh.
The absorbent powder that we use changes the phase of the water. It will freeze at 32°F, but continues to absorb thermal energy down to a -42°F. So unlike plain water, if your freezers are set at -15°F, then our ice blankets will be -15°F. This means that they stay frozen longer than plain frozen water.
