Emirates SkyCargo is rolling out a new white cover solution that has been developed in collaboration with DuPont.

Featuring DuPont’s Tyvek Xtreme W50 material, the new White Cover Xtreme will offer enhanced protection for temperature sensitive cargo in hot, cold and wet weather conditions.

Tyvek Xtreme W50 builds on DuPont’s patented high density polyethylene material used in Emirates SkyCargo’s White Cover and White Cover Advanced solutions to offer more robust protection in changing and extreme weather conditions. The new triple layered protection acts as a shield, reflecting solar heat when temperatures are high and performs as a barrier for conduction, preventing heat from escaping when temperatures are low. In this manner it helps maintain cargo internally at the right temperature. In addition, the Xtreme is breathable and allows water vapour to escape, preventing condensation from forming on the surface of cargo and affecting the integrity of the shipment.
