These desiccant bags are specific to counteract the rapid formation of condensation during trasnport. It's a new product that allows fast absorptionof moisture, preventing its build-up and its damaging effects. Product innovation is characterized by the reduced dimensions/weight and the excellent moisture insulation from the shipping material. This is ensured by the waterproof nature of the bag’s bottom part (alufoil) and its pan shape. The bag’s top part material is high quality TNT; it allows the product to achieve excellent breathability, absence of dust transpiration and outstanding resistance to breakage. As for its content, the innovative mixture gives Desert GEL its fast and total humidity absorption while keeping its size and weight to a minimum. 

USE

It’s possible to have this product in different solutions:

  • Single bag with Non Woven – Triplex Alu barrier film wrapping material: in this case, the bags will have to be distributed uniformly inside the container or hanged with the specific hooks;
  • Bag strip with Non Woven – Triplex Alu barrier film wrapping material: in this case the stripes can be equipped with specific hooks and can be hanged individually to the side walls of the container (stripes with maximum 7 bags) or must be hanged to the two side walls of the container in a transversal way using the corresponding hooks present on the side walls of the container itself (for stripes from 14 bags).

The amount of bags will have to be suitably dimensioned according to the size of the container (20ft or 40ft) and the type of goods to be protected

HANGING SYSTEM

  • Soft string: ideal for bags and stripes to hang to the specific hook on the side walls of the container;
  • Hook: ideal for bags and stripes to hang to the specific hook on the side walls of the container in a quick and easy way;
  • Double-sided adhesive tape: ideal for hanging single bags or stripes (max 7 bags) on the side walls of the container or to fix them on horizontal surfaces and ensure their position. The amount of double-sided adhesive tape pads must be adjusted according to the needs of the Costumer.
