CONTAINER DRI® II has become the gold standard for protecting valuable goods against condensation, moisture and mildew over long-distance shipping routes.

To offer you the best fit for your needs and modes of transportation, our desiccants are also available in a smaller size: DESI PAK® bags for sealed packages – for dryness from start to finish.
We are looking forward to your visit at our booth 7A-520.
