Condensation generally builds up due to wet or damp goods being stored inside a container or due to temperature fluctuations outside the container.
To prevent condensation, use one of the following options:
Solution #1 – Absorpoles
One of the easiest, quickest and most affordable anti-condensation solutions is to use Absorpoles. Using the power of calcium chloride, they remove moisture from the air providing a long lasting solution for overseas shipments or long term storage.

Quick guide to installing Absorpoles
Pull out the inner gray container about 50 millimeters. Then twist off the double pin.
Solution #2 – De-Humidifiers
Another short term, cost effective solution to condensation build up is the use of de-humidifiers. They are readily available to purchase from online hardware stores, however because a de-humidifier works by collecting moisture from the air and filling up a bucket of water, you will need to empty the bucket regularly.
Your de-humidifier will also need an external power supply.
Solution #3 – Container Lining
If you want a long term solution to condensation, you may like to consider having your container lined. There are several options for container lining including:
- Grafo Therm Lining
- Standard wood lining
- Lining and insulation
