Tyvek® Cargo cover

Protect your shipment with Tyvek® Cargo Covers

Specifically engineered to address the threat of cold chain breaks during air transit – when your perishable and temperature sensitive products are at their greatest risk for temperature excursions – Tyvek® Cargo Covers are used by pharmaceutical companies, perishables distributors, 3PLs and airlines worldwide because they offer proven performance with real benefits.

Proven performance

Validated in a wide variety of applications worldwide, Tyvek® Cargo Covers offer advanced multi-threat protection at an affordable price. Tyvek® Cargo Covers provide excellent protection against:

  • Temperature excursions by shielding your products from solar radiation and extreme ambient temperatures – hot and cold.
  • Physical hazards including rain, snow and insects.
  • Harmful gases and vapours, condensation damage and biological threats(1) by allowing gases and vapours to pass through the covers without compromising the cover’s ability to function as an effective barrier to physical hazards.
  • Theft or tampering by masking your products from view, with the option for additional security with a tamper-evident installation.

Real benefits

  • Lower risk of losses and brand injury resulting from cold chain breaks with an affordable, effective passive protection solution
  • Enhance revenue by reducing losses and maintaining quality and efficacy through the cold chain
  • Reduce cost associated with losses, excursion management, secondary packaging and shipping
  • Easy to use lightweight covers install or remove in as little as one minute
  • Simple to use covers install and function effectively without complicated training and require no return logistics

Tyvek® Cargo Covers are used to protect pharmaceuticals, chemicals, inks, and a variety of perishable products including fruits, vegetables, plants and flowers, dairy products and more.

Tyvek® Solar™ W10 Cargo Covers provide outstanding short-wave solar radiation protection to pharmaceuticals when exposed to sunshine conditions. This is the principal cause of temperature excursions. Affordable and easy to use, Tyvek® Solar™ W10 also offers inherent breathability in addition to all the other mechanical benefits of low-conductivity Tyvek® material. By allowing the exchange of air and water vapour through the fabric, the covers help ensure that under cover moisture levels cannot reach damaging levels as a result of ambient temperature fluctuations.

Tyvek® Solar™ W20 provides all the benefits of Tyvek® Solar™ W10 but with the addition of a special performance-enhancing inner layer. The combination of a high reflectivity outer surface with a low-emissivity coating on the inside, makes Tyvek® Solar™ W20 the standard to beat when it comes to thermal radiation control. Normally the metal reflective layer on a cargo cover is an impermeable layer allowing no inside-outside air exchange. However the metallized coating process for Tyvek® Solar™ W20 has been specially developed to permit the breathability of the cover to be maintained while its inward facing orientation reduces radiation in the direction of the cargo.

The new Tyvek® Xtreme™ W50 Cargo Cover comprises a strong, continuous-filament, fibrous insulation layer laminated to a tough overlay of non-woven Tyvek® material. By combining a low-emissivity silver layer with both a highly reflective outer surface and a high efficiency inner insulation layer, the new cover performs both as a radiant shield and a conduction barrier. The inner and outer reflective performance of Tyvek® combined with the new product's mass thermal barrier creates a protective envelope suitable for resisting the ambient and direct temperature variations found in long-haul situations such as intercontinental CRT freight lanes. The product is especially useful for cases where there are transient exposures to very low ambient temperatures and for routes where there is a potential for sizeable temperature swings.
