How does insulation work

The science behind insulation

| Sustainability

Insulated products are unique in comparison to reusable water bottles, food containers or coffee cups, because they have the power to keep the contents’ temperature for a long time. Ditch the lukewarm water at the gym or the midday scramble for a microwave, your Citron insulated products will keep your food and drinks at the perfect temperature. 

How do insulated products work?

Food jar

Insulated products feature a clever design; a double-walled interior. Imagine it like a container nestled within another. The key lies in the space between these walls, it’s a vacuum, with very few air particles. The vacuum eliminates air, stopping convection. The double walls will minimise conduction. As there are so few air molecules to carry the heat in between the two walls, the ideal temperature is kept. This principle works for both hot and cold contents. By keeping the heat inside and preventing cold air from coming in, hot beverages stay hot for prolonged periods. Similarly, by keeping cold air inside and hindering warm air from entering the chamber, cold beverages remain cold for longer.

What insulated products does Citron have?

Water bottle

Insulated water bottles

Citrons' insulated water bottles have been designed to keep your drinks cool for up to 24 hours, or warm for up to 12 hours. With over 20 different colours and patterns to choose from, there is a bottle for everyone in the family. As the summer's here, and the temperatures are rising, it's super important to stay hydrated. Say goodbye to lukewarm water, and enjoy a refreshing drink of water every time you take a sip.

One of our most innovative products has to be our insulated food jars. Citron has two different sized jars, a 250ml and a 400ml food jar, which will keep your food warm for up to 6 hours and cold for 7 hours. So whether you want to enjoy a warm breakfast on the go, a cold refreshing salad for lunch, a food jar is a must product! A food jar could also make a great gift, as you can personalise it for free with their name!

Whether you’re commuting to work, taking the kids to school or you love to start your day with a morning walk, travel mugs are a must. Citron’s sleek vacuum-insulated mugs will keep your drinks warm for 6 hours, or cold for up to 12 hours and come in multiple different colours. Citron travel mugs are very eco-friendly as you can use them day in and day out. Even if you opt for a coffee in a coffee shop, you can ask them to pop the drink into your travel mug, instead of a disposable cup.
