Shipping Container Desiccant Bags

Every year Australian businesses export and import millions of containers of goods from countries all over the world. 

During transit your shipping container is exposed to extreme highs and lows in temperature combined with rising and falling humidity. These erratic conditions cause thousands of containers to fall victim to what is often known as “container rain” or “cargo sweat”. This causes millions of dollars in damage to Australian companies and hurts the reputation of local business.

FROMM Packaging provides a range of desiccant bags for Australian exporters and importers that have been designed to mitigate this risk. The FROMM MBD99 Shipping Container Desiccant Bags protect your cargo from moisture contamination. Designed for moisture sensitive products such as steel or aluminium, cardboard cartons and palletised foods.

Our new range of desiccant bags, Dry Cover and Dry Guard assist in maintaining a controlled climate inside your shipping container. They follow the theories of MBD.99 but have much higher absorption capacities. This means super sensitive cargos can be transported with enough of a desiccant “buffer” should conditions inside the container be extreme. The desiccant bags are designed to ensure no leakage should saturation occur.

Moisture inside international shipping containers is an age old problem. Because of our location on the globe, much of Australia’s exports cross the equator, meaning high temperature, high humidity on the oceans of the world. Conditions at sea can create “container rain” inside shipping containers, which damages important export cargo.

Exclusive to FROMM Packaging Australia, Active Mineral MBD-99 desiccant protects your cargo from moisture contamination. Active Mineral MBD-99 Cargo Guard is specially formulated to lower the dewpoint inside shipping containers to guard against moisture damage whilst in transit.

The active mineral MBD 99 provides the following benefits:

  • inhibits the formation of mould, mildew, rust and corrosion.
  • prevents humidity and moisture from weakening cartons and labels. provides over 60 days of moisture protection and is guaranteed to absorb up to 65% of its own weight in moisture.
  • Ideal for use in ocean, truck and rail shipping containers.
