Clariant's Container Dri II line is well known in the furniture freight industry for its outstanding ability to control humidity during intermodal transport. Furniture manufacturers and traders who are responsible for the transport of furniture and other accessories find the Container Dri II cargo desiccant to be a high-performing, easy-to–use, and cost-effective solution.

Clariant's highly regarded Container Dri II desiccant bags can absorb up to three times their weight in moisture and keep it confined in a no-spill gel. As the desiccant absorbs moisture, it reduces the dew point below the surface temperature, preventing condensation from forming on the walls of the container duringshipment. This is particularly important as the cargo moves through changing climates.

Cost-effective, sustainable solution
In addition to being easy-to-use and safe-to-dispose, Container Dri II cargo desiccants achieve considerable savings for users. The cost for Container Dri II to absorb the same amount of moisture is much lower than many traditional silica gel products or older generations of container desiccants. This significantly lowers the cost spent on the transportation of furniture.

Available in various configurations, these EcoTain-certified products have an outstanding sustainability profile. Clariant's EcoTain label is only awarded to products that are identified as best-in-class for sustainability and performance excellence .
