Spring time is upon us. It is time to break out our coolers. Do you know the difference between
different cooler liners? There is a fine line of craftsmanship when it comes to materials.

The portable ice chest or cooler was invented by Richard Laramy of Joliet, Illinois. On December 22,
1953 he was awarded a patent on his galvanized design. Coolers have come a long way since his time.

When spending your hard-earned marketing dollars on coolers it’s best to know why some are cheaper
than others. You get what you pay for. This information will help you better understand the differences
of cooler liners.

Silver Lined Cooler
Silver Foil Liner- Also called a Thermo-Liner. These can keep items hot or cold. Not recommended with
loose ice. These can be the cheapest of the Liners. Will tear easily.

PEVA Lined Cooler
PEVA- It is a nontoxic Vinyl. This is not good for loose ice. Most coolers will have a leak-resistant barrier. The stitching makes them not hold water too easily.

Heat Sealed PEVA Cooler
Heat Sealed PEVA- This is an added step in the production process. After the bags get sewn they are than heat sealed to prevent leaking. This is by far your best option for portable coolers.

You now know the main differences in cooler liners. Some other things to consider when purchasing a cooler bag are the materials and density of those materials. Make wise choices to keep your promotion, unspoiled and leak proof. Cheers.
