How to use container desiccants
SeaDry Container desiccants by ThoMar were originally designed as high-performance desiccants especially for the moisture protection of sea freight transported in containers. A dry environment is particularly important for sensitive goods in order to reliably protect them from possible moisture damage. SeaDry is the suitable container desiccant for e.g. engine parts, steel coils, furniture and all goods in sales packaging, including packaged food.
In addition to the transport of sea freight, SeaDry is also ideally suited for use in warehousing or in prefabricated construction. SeaDry is used wherever excessive humidity in large, enclosed spaces must be combated. The products are distributed evenly in containers, enclosed storage space or modular construction space to ensure optimum protection against moisture. You can rely on the highest quality - Made in Germany - for all SeaDry products. It goes without saying that all ingredients are REACH-compliant and no DMF is included.
How do container desiccants work?
All SeaDry products consist of a special mixture of calcium chloride and starch with a very high water absorption capacity of over 200 %. The moisture is drawn from the ambient air in the container, so that the air humidity drops to an uncritical level. The risk of transport damage or damage during prolonged storage due to moisture, e.g. corrosion, mold, softened cartons and detached labels, is significantly minimized. The absorbed air humidity is immediately bound as a gel by the starch contained, thus preventing water from escaping from the bags.
What variants of container desiccants are available?
For all SeaDry variants, the front or top side consists of a HDPE fleece (high density polyethylen), through which the humidity can enter into the desiccant, but cannot escape again. The back or underside consists of a moisture-impermeable multi-layer film.
