About Sunmed

Suzhou Sunmed Co., Ltd. is a professional leading manufacturer and exporter of first aid, medical, and healthcare products in China. We operate multiple production bases in Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Anhui Province.

With 30 years of experience in the medical device(medical equipment and medical consumbles) industry, we specialize in first aid, wound dressing, medical supply (such as medical gauze, bandages, medical tape, medical cotton, and medical non-woven products), sports bandages and family healthcare (including kinesiology tape,pill box,hot&cold packs), and medical instruments (such as disposable syringes, catheters, surgical consumables, and other medical consumables).
As a OEM Instant Hot Pack Manufacturers and Instant Hot Pack Factory in China.We have exported our products to over 60 countries worldwide, including key markets in Europe (such as the UK, Germany, Spain, Denmark, and the Netherlands), Southeast Asia (including Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand), Africa (such as Tanzania, Mauritius, and South Africa), and Oceania (including Australia and New Zealand).
Our markets include hospitals, first aid suppliers, supermarkets, and retail sports shops.In 2008, we established our first aid factory to meet the demands of our first aid customers. In 2021, to accommodate our customers' growing needs, we established our own factory for kinesiology tape, cohesive bandages (self-adhesive wrap), and elastic adhesive bandages.

Sunmed boasts a professional quality control team comprising hundreds of personnel who rigorously adhere to inspection procedures to ensure our Instant Hot Pack Wholesale meet ISO13485:2016 standards. Most of our products are CE certified, and our Suzhou factories comply with FDA requirements.

Industry knowledge
What specific chemicals are commonly used in instant hot packs to initiate the heating reaction?

Instant hot packs typically utilize a combination of chemicals that undergo an exothermic reaction when mixed. The most common chemicals involved in this reaction are:
Iron Powder (Iron): Iron is a key component in instant hot packs. It reacts with another chemical to undergo an oxidation process, producing heat as a byproduct.
Salt (Sodium Acetate): Sodium acetate is often used as a salt component in instant hot packs. It serves as a catalyst to initiate the crystallization process and provides an environment for the reaction to occur.
Activated Charcoal or Vermiculite: These substances act as an insulator and help distribute the heat evenly within the pack. They also assist in controlling the speed and duration of the reaction.
Water: Water is required to initiate the chemical reaction. When the chemicals are dissolved in water, it triggers the exothermic reaction and facilitates the transfer of heat.
This reaction releases a significant amount of heat quickly, leading to the rapid warming of the instant hot pack. The reaction is reversible, allowing the pack to be reset for future use by boiling it to dissolve the crystallized iron back into a liquid state.

What type of exothermic reaction takes place in the instant hot pack, and what factors influence the speed and intensity of the reaction?
The exothermic reaction that takes place in an instant hot pack typically involves the oxidation of iron powder (Fe) in the presence of oxygen (O2) from the air. This reaction generates heat as a byproduct, leading to the rapid warming of the pack. 
Factors that influence the speed and intensity of the reaction in an instant hot pack include:
Particle Size of Iron Powder: The surface area of the iron powder particles affects the rate of reaction. Finely powdered iron has a larger surface area available for reaction, leading to a faster reaction rate and higher heat output.
Concentration of Reactants: The concentration of iron powder and other reactants, such as salt or water, can impact the speed and intensity of the reaction. Higher concentrations of reactants typically result in a more vigorous reaction and greater heat generation.
Temperature: The initial temperature of the reactants, particularly the water used to activate the pack, can influence the reaction rate. Warmer water will facilitate faster dissolution of the reactants and promote a more rapid reaction.
Presence of Catalysts: Certain substances, such as salt (sodium acetate), act as catalysts and enhance the rate of the exothermic reaction. Catalysts provide an alternative reaction pathway with lower activation energy, allowing the reaction to proceed more rapidly.
Surface Area Exposure: Maximizing the exposure of iron powder to oxygen from the air can accelerate the reaction. Ensuring proper mixing of the ingredients and minimizing any barriers to air flow within the pack can help optimize the reaction rate.
Insulation: The insulation properties of the pack material can affect the rate at which heat is dissipated from the reaction. Insulating materials help retain the heat generated by the reaction within the pack, increasing the overall intensity and duration of the heat output.
Stirring or Agitation: Agitating the contents of the pack, either during activation or while in use, can enhance the mixing of reactants and promote a more rapid reaction. This can result in quicker heating and more consistent temperature output.
