Container Dri® II is designed for use inside shipping containers to control dew point and avoid the “container rain” that can damage products in transit.
The harmful effects of product damage caused by condensation during transport can often translate into lost revenue and jeopardize credibility for manufacturers, distributors and retailers. In growing numbers, however, transporters are learning that one of the most effective weapons to protect shipments from moisture is Container Dri® II

What is it?
Container Dri® II is a specially designed desiccant aimed at protecting cargo during shipping by absorbing moisture vapor from the air. In doing so, Container Dri® II reduces dew point temperature (the temperature at which condensation begins to form, causing “container rain”), keeping cargo dry and safe.
Its design allows water vapor to easily enter through the flexible packaging film and into the interior of the bag, where it is concentrated into a thick gel. Water vapor can pass into the bag, but the gel cannot leak or escape. This new patented design has many advantages over other desiccant products.
Container Dri® II Usage
The recommended usage for Container Dri® II is 32 bags for a normal 20 ft. shipping container, and 64 bags for a 40 ft. shipping container. We recommend that you consult your sales representative or distributor for additional information and assistance, since travel time, weather conditions, temperature variations, and final destination may significantly affect the levels of relative humidity encountered during the voyage.
When the shipment reaches its final destination, the Container Dri® II bags may be removed during the unloading process, and treated as normal waste. Since the product is not hazardous and is non toxic, the bags may be thrown into a normal waste container or into an ordinary landfill.
Container Dri® II Strip™
Container Dri® II is also available in a continuous strip. Configured in a continuous strip of six 125 gram bags of Container Dri® II, this new product reduces time and labor during cargo loading, improving efficiency and lowering overall shipping costs. Each Container Dri® II Strip™ features a waterproof adhesive peel-off back for easy placement along shipping container walls.
Container Dri® II PLUS
Container Dri® II Plus (CDII+) is part of Süd-Chemie’s Container Dri® II line of cargo desiccants. It is a specially designed desiccant aimed at protecting cargo by absorbing moisture vapor from the air. CDII+ is a versatile configuration composed of a blanket of 12 125-gram compartments of Container Dri II. Container Dri® II Plus is made with an outer protective envelope and powerful strapping system allowing it to be quickly and securely hung and suspended in sea containers, rail cars or river barges.
Container Dri® II Plus is available in a large configuration containing the equivalent of 12 125-gram bags complete with strapping system and locking hook for hanging. Because of its large configuration only 5 to 6 bags are recommended to protect a rail car or 40-foot container. The amount varies depending on transport route, environmental conditions and susceptibility of the cargo.
Why use Container Dri® II Plus?
CDII+ adds a greater level of protection in containers by ensuring significant moisture reduction. As goods move through inter-modal transport systems, they are susceptible to water damage from condensation of moisture due to high humidity and day-to-night temperature changes. Container Dri® II Plus absorbs approximately 2400 grams of moisture per bag, reducing the dew point temperature (the temperature at which condensation begins to form, causing “container rain”), helping to keep the cargo dry and safe. The product is ready-to-use, making installation quick and easy in a variety of shipping containers.
