Shanghai, September 29, 2014 — Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, will showcase its leading desiccant products and its newly expanded line of container desiccants, Container Dri® II dedicated to the transportation industry during the 9th China (Shenzhen) International Logistics and Transportation Fair (CILF) to be staged on October 14-16, 2014 at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center in China.
In the increasingly globalized supply chain, uncontrolled humidity and condensation on shipment en route to international destination can easily compromise business’ bottom line. 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.
Clariant’s Container Dri® II portfolio offers a comprehensive line of container desiccants that provide 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.
The product 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.
“Our Container Dri® II line-up provide our customers with high quality products in variuos sizes and styles that fully meet their needs with some of the best performance on the market. On the logistics and transportation scene of China, where there’s an increasing drive for more reliable intermodal cargo desiccants, we find a strong demand for our products,” said Menghwee Toh, Head of Sales for Clariant CPD Asia, BL Absorbents, BU Functional Minerals.
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.
CILF is considered the biggest exhibition for the logistics and transportation industry in the whole of Asia. Its 2013 episode successfully attracted over 1,200 exhibitors from some 40 different countries.Learn more about the extensive Container Dri® II range, along with Clariant’s other mositure control solutions, during the three-day CILF show at Booth No:1563.
