Wisecargo Gel Desiccant

Wisecargo Super Absorbing Gel Desiccants — 280% absorption?

Correct, the new Wisecargo Gel Desiccant from JMP is the Rolls Royce of desiccants at a Toyota price! Wisecargo is a technological break through in desiccants and is available in Australia exclusively through JMP Holdings.

Wisecargo is a specially designed desiccant housed inside leak proof packaging. It is an important tool in assuring your cargo is transported in a dry and safe condition no matter what temperature extremities it may endure. Wisecargo quickly absorbs large amounts of moisture in order to control the relative humidity inside a shipping container, effectively wiping out the problem of ‘container rain’ caused by this excessive humidity.

Wisecargo’s sorbent is a unique formula, which can absorb up to 280% of its weight under the condition of 25°C and 90% humidity. With such a large absorption rate the sorbent turns into a leak proof gel for added product protection.

When containers are loaded and shipped through fluctuating temperatures and relative humidity the possibility of condensation occurring is substantial as temperatures drop. Wisecargo helps keep the dew point temperature below the actual temperature, even when the actual temperature drops within the shipping container due to fluctuations. "Dew Point Temperature" is the temperature at which water vapor begins to condense onto a surface forming liquid water. The liquid that results inside a container is called "Container Rain".

Container rain will occur if the surface temperature of an object is equal or lower than the dew point temperature. If the relative humidity is lowered with the absorbing properties of Wisecargo, the dew point temperature is also lowered, stopping container rain.

As you can see from the two charts below, the use of Wisecargo has helped bring the relative humidity down far below 100%.

How do Wisecargo Desiccants work?

Positioning your Wisecargo Desiccants

Placing your Wisecargo in strategic positions inside your container should ensure a dry cargo out turn at the final destination. Wisecargo strips are very flexible and come with adhesive backing tabs allowing you to place the bag in almost any position no matter what the packing configuration of the container maybe.

Case Study


Company ‘A’ ships their product by ocean freight container from South China to the United Kingdom. When the container is opened at the destination water beads are found along the surface of the container’s roof. The cartons were damp and there was an unpleasant odour omitting from a build up of mould on the wooden cases (see below). A solution had to be sought and that solution was Wisecargo. To ensure Wisecargo was the perfect choice a trial was conducted.
