Insulated bags made from thermal fabrics
Insulated bags made from thermal fabrics
Fabric that keeps food and drinks hot or cold
There are three types of thermal fabric for bags.
Thermoplastic fabrics can be classified as follows:
- The synthetic thermal fabric can withstand very high temperatures without burning.
- Natural thermal fabric
- Thermal fabric made from recycled materials
- Thermal batting that has insulation properties.
- The thermal interfacing is lightweight and has insulation properties.
Different styles of bags can be made with thermal fabrics
The use of thermal fabrics is not limited to wine bags, bottles, lunch boxes bags, champagne cooler bags and reusable bags.
The thermal fabric is ideal for bag projects that require hot or cold storage. Temperature control is essential for many products, including food, drink and medicine, as well as industrial chemicals.
Thermal fabrics can also be used for industrial purposes, such as to protect astronauts and fire fighters.
Thermal fabric is used in domestic products such as picnic bags, zipped shopping bag, ironing board and tablecloths. Thermal fabrics are usually found on the inside of products and can be covered with other fabric depending on its intended use.
Synthetic Thermal Material
The thermal fabric is made of aluminium and has a cotton backing. It can withstand temperatures up to 200C (399F). Although it doesn't provide insulation, it is useful for tablecloths and oven gloves as well as ironing boards.
Natural Thermal Fabric
Wool is a natural insulation and has been used for hundreds upon hundreds of years as clothing. Alpaca wool is another great option. It is a renewable resource and an excellent insulation. There are many air pockets that trap air and provide a thermal barrier against the outside. Recycled plastic fibres are an alternative.
Recycled thermal cloth
Natural wool is not as effective as natural wool, but it is more flammable and less prone to getting damp. It can be recycled, which is a benefit! It is great for thermally insulating shopping bags that keep products cool during transit. Also, it is less likely to be ruined by spillages than a wool lined bag.
This thermal fabric is made up of polyester fibres, which are woven with a reflective metal coating. Polyester fibres insulate through resisting conduction, while the metal poly film resists radiant heat by reflecting it back at its source. This fabric is noisy and great for bags, but not for clothes.
Thermal interfacing, which is made of synthetic fibres, is very popular in ski wear. It can be used as a thin lining or reflects back temperature. It retains its insulation properties even when damp.
Lunch bags made of thermal fabrics
Thermal batting is the most widely used thermal fabric for bags. The thermal fabric for bags can be found in picnic bags, lunch bags, and bottle bags. It is used to reflect heat or cool temperatures. Ice packs are popular additions to cooler bag printing and picnic bags. They generate a cold temperature that allows the thermal fabric to reflect cold back to the contents.
The thermal batting and a PVC wipe-clean fabric will be included in a custom cooler bag or bottle bag. This allows for easy cleanup of spillages and crumbs. There are many options for PVC wipe-clean linings for bags in different colours and thicknesses.
