Preventing Container Rain
A unique feature of Container Dri II desiccants also referred to as moisture absorbing bags, or dry bags, is dew point control. Dew point is the temperature at which condensation starts to form on surfaces, such as container walls and ceilings. By aggressively removing moisture from ambient air, Container Dri II products lower the dew point to prevent “container rain” from damaging goods in transit.

This system is highly effective in preventing the conditions that may cause mildew, warpage, corrosion, caking and other damage to agricultural products, bulk foods, powders, wood products, glass, furniture, automobile parts, leather goods, beans such as cocoa bean, and coffee bean, machinery, and metal components. Container Dri II cargo desiccants can help manufacturers, shippers, distributors and other stakeholders protect brand equity, maintain their reputation for quality and safeguard revenues.
Protecting Food Shipments
Container Dri II has already enjoyed success protecting cocoa bean shipments from moisture damage by providing the highest moisture absorption of any calcium chloride–based product, easily addressing the 65 percent or higher loading of calcium chloride recommended in the Federation of Cocoa Commerce Ltd. (FCC) guidelines for shipment of cocoa beans in containers.
Packaging and usage

Container Dri II is available in several configurations to best accommodate different modes and methods of shipping. The number may vary depending on shipping conditions and the nature of the products being protected. Clariant works with customers to determine the optimal number of bags needed to protect goods for the duration of their journey.
