Thermal packaging utilizing EPP and vacuum-insulation technology

Precious Cargo is a compact, hygienic, and insulated container technology for the safe transportation of temperature-sensitive goods. Designed by Naomi Tsai and manufactured by va-Q-tec, Precious Cargo has a vacuum insulating panel (VIP) interior and a lightweight, shock-absorbing outer casing for additional protection.

VIPs are composed of open-pore particles vacuum-packed with high-barrier metallized multilayer films and represent the next wave of superior insulation technology. The thermal performance of Precious Cargo is up to fifteen times higher than that of conventional cases.
