Our Kool-aborators

Accelerating Commercialisation Program.

The KoolPak project is supported by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources through the Accelerating Commercialisation Program. We were fortunate to receive our grant in March 2019, and it has been instrumental in getting the project to where it is now.

Like so many involved in the KoolPak project, QDAF have been with us since the beginning. Sue and her team have put the KoolPaks through their paces with rigorous testing in a variety of situations to provide the empirical data we use to support our claim that: “TomKat KoolPaks have equivalent thermal performance to standard size Expanded Polystyrene Fish Boxes and exceed their  performance in some conditions.”
