Art and Antiques Import/Export- Protect Artwork And Antiques From Moisture Damage With Desiccant Packs And Strips

When it comes to preserving and maintaining precious art forms, antiques, and other sensitive and fragile art items, in the art and antiques import/export industry during cargo or shipping to protect valuable items from moisture damage, it is important to choose the right and best suitable desiccant material for efficient moisture and humidity absorption.

Desiccant packs are commonly used in the art and antiques import/export industry during cargo or shipping to protect valuable items from moisture damage. Moisture can be detrimental to artworks and antiques, leading to mold, warping, or other forms of deterioration. Cargo Dry Pak helps absorb excess moisture and maintain the appropriate humidity levels during transportation and storage, thus safeguarding the integrity of the items, and can absorb over 300% of its weight.

The use of non-toxic desiccant packs in the art and antiques import/export industry is essential for preserving the quality of the items during transit. Moisture can cause significant damage to artworks and antiques, making it crucial to control humidity levels during shipping and storage. Desiccant packs play a vital role in absorbing excess moisture and maintaining the appropriate environment to safeguard these valuable items, and are suitable for ocean, truck, rail, and air shipping containers.

Protecting Artwork and Antiques from moisture damage using container desiccants

Made from Hygroscopic materials

Many art and antiques, such as paintings, sculptures, furniture, books, textiles, and metal sculptures, are highly susceptible to moisture damage due to varying humidity levels or changing environmental conditions during transit and storage. Desiccant packs help absorb excess moisture from the air within the shipping container, preventing warping, mildew growth, corrosion, and other forms of deterioration.

Effective climate control inside cargo

For high-value or moisture-sensitive pieces, such as high end art pieces, and paintings, desiccant container strips can be used in addition to climate-controlled containers to maintain consistent humidity levels throughout the shipping process until they reach the destination or for very long durations.

Fight container rain and ocean freight issues

Condensation and container rain are some of the most common causes of water damage on seagoing vessels. Due to the large temperature differences between the hold of the vessel and the deck of the vessel, desiccants are necessary to reduce this risk and protect the cargo from moisture.

Odor control and mold and mildew prevention

Desiccants help to remove musty smells that can build up in closed shipping containers, which also helps to preserve the smell and texture of your artwork or antiques. By controlling the humidity, you create an environment less prone to mold growth. This helps to protect your valuable pieces, and metal objects, such as sculptures, artifacts, and other metal items, Container desiccants help to prevent rusting and corrosion by lowering the moisture levels inside the shipping container.

Safeguarding wooden artifacts

Safeguarding wooden artifacts with cargo desiccants is crucial for preserving their longevity and preventing moisture-related damage. Desiccants, such as Silica gel, absorb moisture through adsorption, attracting and holding water molecules onto their surface, and help maintain a dry environment, protecting the artifacts from moisture-related deterioration.

Sustainable packing materials

Desiccants may be added directly to the packing material, for example, a silica gel pouch can be added inside the cushioning or the desiccant bag, providing localized protection for sensitive materials. You can also use a container strip when shipping large artifacts, art, and antiques during import/export for longer durations.

Always use high quality container desiccants from Desiccant Pak to safeguard, protect, preserve, and maintain high end art and antiques import/export during cargo or shipping from detrimental factors that are common during long transits. Make sure to use the right desiccant material that is sustainable and affordable that can effectively fight moisture and humidity related damage.
