Clariant Cargo and Device Protection’s advanced moisture protection technologies offer industry-leading solutions for a broad range of transport applications: from goods traveling in conventional cargo packaging and containers to shipment and storage of sensitive electronic and semiconductor devices.
Protect Cargo during Transport and Export
Intermodal transport – rail, truck, container ship – exposes cargo to a range of potentially damaging environmental conditions, including high humidity. Even mild humidity, if prolonged, can lead to mold, spoilage, corrosion, discoloration, caked powders, warped wood and other devaluation of products in transit. In some cases, condensation on the sides of containers and truck trailers can cause container rain, posing further risk to valuable product.
For protection against such risk, Clariant Cargo & Device Protection offers innovative container desiccants that control moisture during shipment, as well as high-performance humidity indicators that alert shippers when humidity threatens their cargo. Clariant’s flagship product family, Container Dri® II container desiccants, offers high absorption capability in high humidity (>40 percent) scenarios to avoid container rain also known as cargo sweat.
Protect Electronics and Semiconductors against Moisture
Excessive moisture can seriously degrade the performance of electronics and semiconductor devices during transport or storage. That’s why manufacturers across the entire electronics supply chain choose to incorporate Clariant’s innovative desiccants into their packaging to protect their products’ performance.
Clariant offers a full range of industry-leading desiccants, humidity indicator cards and adsorbent technologies to protect your most sensitive devices. We also supply desiccants and humidity indicators for semiconductors and surface-mount devices that comply with standards established by the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC specification J-STD-033 for dry packing).
Protect Packaged Foods against Oxygen Absorption
In addition to moisture, oxygen left inside food packaging can affect the taste, texture and freshness and can ultimately lead to food spoilage. To help our customers’ maintain their high quality brands, Clariant offers Oxy-Guard ™ oxygen scavengers, also known as oxygen absorbers, that can be used in the packaging itself, thus eliminating the need to add preservatives or additives to food products. We offer Oxy-Guard in two customizable configurations to meet our customers’ needs: Packets and continuous strips for automatic insertion. To protect against oxidation and prolong shelf life, our Oxy-Guard line is designed to maintain oxygen levels of less than 0.01% inside a sealed package throughout its intended shelf life.
