Shanghai, September 2, 2014 — Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, invites International Glass Expo visitors to explore its newly expanded line of container desiccants, Container Dri® II, which offers an extraordinary quality and safety profile, during the Expo on September 16-18 at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing. Clariant representatives will be on-hand to help customers find exactly the right solution for their cargo shipping needs.
Mold, corrosion, spoilage and warping are just some of the harmful effects caused by moisture during transportation, whether it is via shipping container, rail, barge or truck. In a world of international production and delivery, uncontrolled humidity and condensation during shipping can wreak havoc on a business’ bottom line.
Clariant’s Container Dri® II portfolio offers a broad line of container desiccants that offer versatile protection against damaging humidity and moisture during intermodal transport. Available in bags, poles and strips, these industry-leading products aggressively absorb up to three times their weight in moisture, and trap it as a thick gel that will not spill or drip, reducing relative humidity to less than 40 percent.
Container Dri® II reduces dew point temperatures that cause harmful “container rain”, keeping cargoes safe and dry for up to 90 days. It is particularly valuable when there is a large volume of space requiring moisture removal; high levels of humiditiy are present due to climate, cargo or storage conditions; or the container is not fully closed and admits exterior air and humidity.
“We have seen increasing customer demand for intermodal cargo desiccants in recent years, this phenomenon is especially apparent in China with its increasing global trade presence and their continuing pursuit for better product quality. ” explained Menghwee Toh, Head of Sales for Clariant APAC Cargo Device Protection, BU Functional Minerals. “Clariant’s extensive Container Dri® II line-up offers high quality products in a range of sizes and styles that fully meet our customers’ needs with the best performance on the market.”
Container Dri® II claims this top-performing spot thanks to the absorption capacity of up to 300% with its calcium chloride desiccant bags. This means that customers accustomed to using traditional silica gels for moisture control will see noticable better moisture control for all types of products during transport — regardless of mode or method — with Container Dri® II products.
