The challenge
The challenge for exporters is to avoid perishable and thermal sensitive goods being rejected in the process of being loaded into cargo holds. Special care must be taken to ensure perishables and other thermal sensitive products are provided with the necessary protection to suit a variety of environments. 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.

The solution is Cargo Absorbent
Cargo Absorbent acts as a layer of protection or moisture barrier and is capable of absorbing 5 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 extra measure will ensure perishable goods that leak will not make direct contact to aircraft surfaces, preventing contamination/corrosion to aircraft parts in the cargo hold.
