Where does the heat in the blanket come from?

The heat of the active self-warming blanket BARRIER EasyWarm is produced via an exothermic chemical reaction initiated by exposure to air, resulting from the oxidation of iron.
The contents of the warmers are all-natural: activated carbon, iron, water, salt, clay and the chemicals are securely contained in 12 separate pockets.
The pockets are designed and positioned to provide the maximum heat transfer in the most efficient manner. Average temperature of 40ºC is reached within 30 minutes; the maximum temperature will not exceed 43 ºC.


Several layers of SMS (polypropylene). The layers and pockets are sewn together with polyester/cotton threads.
The warming pads are made up of air permeable bags that contain active coal, clay, salt and iron powder.

Vacuum packed into an airtight polymer bag. The polymer bags are wrapped in bubble wrap and packed into a transport box.
10 single packed products in each transport box.
