Absorbents for perishable goods

CARGO Fresh was developed for the airfreight industry, and in particular for the problems associated with the transportation of perishable goods.

Perishable and thermal sensitive goods can often be rejected in the process of being loaded into cargo holds – due to the lack of absorbency/protection.

With chilled products being exposed to ambient temperatures during transportation there is a risk of high humidity causing condensation, and the possibility of leakage from certain transported goods can bring about the risk of corrosion if not contained.

This is particularly an issue with products packed with ice.

Cargo Fresh is a highly absorbent material and acts as a layer of protection or moisture barrier. It will absorb from 1.5 to 10 litres of liquid per square metre, with a barrier coated HDPE film base which prevents liquid penetrating through to the floor and an absorbent top layer. This protects both the goods and the aircraft.

Cargo Fresh can also be used in shipping containers where there are issues with condensation or ‘container rain’..
