Test Valley Packaging launches Cargo Absorbent to solve condensation problems in air freight
Jan 25, 2017: Test Valley Packaging has developed Cargo Absorbent in response to increasing demand to solve condensation problems from the air freight industry. This product has a barrier coated HDPE Film base which prevents liquid penetrating through to the floor and an Absorbent top layer capable of absorbing up to 5 litres of liquid per square metre.
The challenge for the industry was to address the contamination/corrosion to aircraft parts in the cargo hold through uncontrolled condensation caused by leakage from frozen products during air transportation.
“From extensive discussions with the industry, we understood the risks and costs caused by corrosion and contamination and set our development team the task of finding a solution,” said Jerry Steedman, managing director.
Cargo Absorbent is also available perforated at 2.5 metres with the capability of absorbing 1.5 litres of liquid per square metre, the perforated version also has a barrier coated HDPE Film base which prevents liquid penetrating through to the floor.
