Emirates SkyCargo Launches New Temperature Protection Solution
Emirates SkyCargo is rolling out a new white cover solution developed in collaboration with DuPont, featuring the company’s Tyvek Xtreme W50 material. The new White Cover Xtreme offers enhanced protection for temperature sensitive cargo in hot, cold and wet weather conditions.
The White Cover Xtreme acts as a shield reflecting solar heat when temperatures are high and as a barrier for conduction preventing heat from escaping when temperatures are low thereby helping maintain cargo internally at the right temperature. In addition, White Cover Xtreme is breathable and allows water vapor to escape preventing condensation from forming on the surface of cargo and affecting the integrity of the shipment. Emirates SkyCargo is the first air cargo carrier globally to be introducing DuPont’s Tyvek Xtreme W50 material in its White Cover protection solutions focused on ground handling.
Emirates SkyCargo first began by introducing ‘White Cover Advanced’ in April 2016 which followed on the earlier success of its ‘White Cover’ solution. ‘White Cover’ is primarily used for protecting perishables such as fruits and vegetables having a higher temperature tolerance, whereas ‘White Cover Advanced’ is used for securing packaged pharmaceuticals shipments which are more susceptible to increase in heat. The new White Cover Xtreme will help shield temperature sensitive shipments, including pharmaceuticals, which travel through extreme and variable weather conditions from origin to destination.
