Instant hot and cold packs are used by athletes to quickly and conveniently treat an injury. They last for about 20 minutes. The packs take advantage of chemicals that either absorb a lot of heat or release a lot of heat when dissolved in water. When a chemical process absorbs a lot of heat it is called endothermic. When heat is released, it is called exothermic.
In cold packs, ammonium nitrate is used because it absorbs a lot of heat when it dissolves in water. The water and ammonium nitrate are in separate compartments in the pack. When the cold pack is needed, the chambers are broken and the ammonium nitrate dissolves in the water, absorbing heat and making the pack as cold as 0C.
In hot packs, calcium chloride or magnesium sulphate are used, along with the water. They release heat when the chambers are broken and the chemical dissolves in the water. A hot pack can reach a temperature of 90C.
Cold packs were invented 25 years ago by Cardinal Health.

Dogs, known to be "A Man's Best Friend" only work in packs in the wild. Canines can also work in packs if they are pets, but it is way less likely to work in packs more than wild ones. So, in the conclusion, the answer is: Yes, wild dogs work in packs.
Yes, hot packs have exothermic reactions (the contents create heat) and cold packs have endothermic reactions (they require heat to occur, therefore making the surroundings colder). In hot packs its a reaction between water and a salt solution, and in cold packs its normally water and ammonium nitrate. peeace

Cold packs are a category of therapeutic applications that are used deliver a comfortable and prolonged exposure to cold to a specific and isolated area of the body when in pain or injured. When a cold pack is used this way it is helpful in reducing pain and reducing inflammation. Cold packs are normally made with ice inside a closed container, or the newer form of a gel material that can be reused by placing in a freezer.
Your texture packs may not work because you are using the incorrect version, so you will need to apply a patch to make them work.

streching or cold then hot packs
In short yes they do expire. The timing varies depending on the manufacturer. If the pack appears yellow in color most likely it will not work to its original standards. It may not get as cold or may not stay cold for as long. The further from white the color is the less it is going to work properly.
