The comprehensive range of pre-hydrated gel ice packs.

The outstanding performance of traditional Sorbafreeze (now rebranded as Sorbatek) is unbeatable but when your dispatch volume increases, the soaking prior to freezing process can become too time consuming and can outweigh the cost savings to be had with traditional unhydrated ice packs.

Your volumes demand a pre-hydrated straight to freezer option = Hydratek

The Hydratek range has a selection of blocks and sheets to work with all insulated dispatch boxes to ensure temperature maintenance of your products.  Bespoke sizes and branded print are available on request.

Over 25 years of knowledge and expertise as chilled packaging specialists has been fully invested in Sorbafreese in the development of hydratek to ensure it will fully match the temperature performance our Sorbatek range is already known for.

Hydratek Range

Hydratek is available in five sheet options and as  500g blocks.  You can buy our products in boxes or pallets. The off-the-shelf sheet options have been designed as ‘chill lids’ to fit the most common dispatch boxes.

Hydratek’s 500g blocks have been developed with the seafood industry in mind and used worldwide by leading companies to ensure the safe transport of their temperature sensitive goods and most critically maintaining the integrity of their cold chain deliveries. They provide a high density frozen mass maintaining temperatures for up to 48 hours when combined with our Chilltek range.

Bespoke sizes and printed options are also available upon request.
