Nortech Focuses on National Security: Supplying Ammonium Nitrate
Free Alternatives to Instant Cold Packs
After 9/11, no Ambulances or Emergency
Medical Services (EMS) were permitted to carry any Hazardous Materials
within their vehicles. Surprisingly, one of the most dangerous,
explosive and hazardous materials is found in most of the Instant
Cold Packs out there today.
Ammonium Nitrate is globally distributed and has led to or contributed
to accidental explosions and plotted terrorist attack. Shockingly,
there is little restriction in obtaining one of the most hazardous
materials, Ammonium Nitrate (AN). This dangerous component is
found in safety and first aid products such as instant cold packs,
commonly found in households, schools, the workplace, etc. Believe
it or not, institutions such as firehouses and hospitals are carrying
these cold packs with the explosive substance AN unaware of the
potential dangers. Nortech is taking a proactive approach to the
saying “for every hazardous substance there is a safer alternative.”
In many cases, safer alternative products are developed with the
environment and human health in mind. A select amount of companies
pride themselves on safer and effective alternatives. Nortech,
a United States (USA) based manufacturer is a leader in the HOT
and COLD gel pack therapy market and has kept safety in mind since
day one for over forty-five years with substantial focus on National
Nortech is one of the first companies to integrate and deliver
a REVOLUTIONARY cold pack that’s stays colder longer. InstaKool™
Instant Cold Packs are used in first aid situations to serve immediate
cold therapy to relieve the pain and swelling caused by sprains,
strains, contusions, minor burns, toothaches, insect bites, etc.
InstaKool is designed to meet all cryo-therapy and modality needs.
It quickly helps reduce swelling, ease pain and promote faster
recovery for any conditions requiring cold therapy.
InstaKool is the first Ammonium Nitrate FREE; Urea based proprietary
formulation to rival the competitive temperature ranges of previous
Ammonium Nitrate formulas. Nortech has established standards and
safety features that are leaving current suppliers cold. InstaKool
exceeds the American National Standard Index Requirements (ANSI)
for Cold Packs 126.96.36.199 and ASTM Method (D882) for Tensile Strength
at Break for cold duration more so than rivaled instant cold packs.
So why buy any other cold pack?
One pallet, approximately 60-100 cases of instant cold packs can
yield up to 700lbs of pure Ammonium Nitrate. It took 1800 lbs
to do the damage it did in the case of Okalahoma City. There are
thousands of pallets of instant cold packs with this explosive
and hazardous material Ammonium Nitrate in warehouses all over
the world. Some may not even be marked with the required ORM-D
label classifying it as a Hazardous Material.
Safer and HAZ-MAT Free, Nortech’s InstaKool is the answer
for current suppliers and distributors because it eliminates the
HAZMAT fee that suppliers are paying. With InstaKool no O-RMD
label is required. Recent legislature has put constraints on the
storage, facilities and use of ammonium nitrate. Past headlines
have also noted that from the Oklahoma bombing to the train bombings
in England, AMMONIUM NITRATE (fertilizer) has been key components
of explosives used.
