Vapor Barrier Bagging - Moisture Protection

DLS teams have saved our customers millions of dollars and companies reputations over the years by insisting that the products be projected against moisture. We have saved by offsetting the need to remove rust, repair electrical. Moisture is a constant concern even if it is equipped with air conditioning and a dehumidifier condensation will occur in the holds of cargo ship. Additionally, cargo may also be unloaded in the rain or fog, or the foreign port may not have covered storage facilities - enter DLS custom built export crates.

ISPM 15 process

Under ISPM 15, all non-manufactured wood packaging materials (WPM) for export – including: crating wood, wood pallets, wood skids, and loose wood dunnage - must be treated, either by heat or fumigation. Manufactured wood products such as plywood, oriented strand board (OSB) and particle board do not need to be treated as any pests are destroyed during the manufacturing process.

Heat treating process heats the wood until its core temperature gets to 56 degrees Celsius for at least 30 minutes. This process is widely accepted as an effective means to destroy any pests that could be harmful to forests. Wood can also be fumigated, but heat treating is considered an environmentally preferable alternative.
