Does Grafo Therm work?
In its dry state Grafo-Therm is an efficient insulant. A 1.5mm thickness lengthens the period before dew point is reached. This reduces and in some cases prevents the periods in which condensation occurs. This condensation is absorbed by the Grafo-Therm coating and released rapidly, when conditions change to drying.
Do shipping containers get damp?
Many shipping containers, and indeed storage containers used for the long-term storage or transportation of goods and cargo, suffer from container damp and moisture problems including condensation – commonly known as container rain or cargo sweat.
How does anti condensation paint work?
Address the cause of mould and prevent condensation from building up on your wall. Anti Condensation Paint adds an extra layer of insulation to your wall and puts a stop to condensation building up and mould growing.
How do you keep a shipping container from getting damp?

How do you keep moisture out of a shipping container?
Placing a couple of large silica gel bags inside a shipping container can effectively reduce moisture from the interior and control the dew point temperature. Desiccant blankets are also ideal for protecting goods against condensation.
When should I use anti condensation paint?
Designed for use in areas of high moisture – kitchens and bathrooms – and providing moisture resistant finish, anti-condensation paint is not a waterproofing product that will prevent moisture and damp from penetrating the walls from behind.
Is there a paint that stops condensation?
PermaSEAL Anti Condensation Paint is a specially formulated coating that can be applied to various internal surfaces to prevent condensation. When you apply this condensation paint, it raises the surface temperature of the internal walls – it’s actually warm to touch!
How do you prevent mold in shipping containers?
How to Prevent Mold in Storage Containers
- Choose your boxes wisely. When it comes to boxes, people tend to gravitate towards using used boxes to pack up their belongings for storage.
- Clean and dry items before storing.
- Pack desiccators in your containers.
- Think airflow!
- Opt for a climate-controlled unit.
How do you stop condensation in a shipping container home?
Desiccant Bags: Desiccant bags are used to absorb the humidity in a shipping container, and can be hung from the ceiling and along the walls to help reduce the moisture in the air. As the desiccant traps moisture, it reduces the dew point temperature, preventing condensation from forming on the walls of the container.
What is the best way to ventilate a shipping container?
Placing vents onto your containers allows air to blow both in and out of your containers just by the wind. This is most commonly referred to as cross ventilation. You place vents on the side of your container so that wind blows into them. Then install vents on the opposite side of your container.
What is anti condensation paint used for?
Anti condensation paint is any coating that prevents moisture from forming on surfaces. These paints are usually designed to repel water as well as provide some thermal insulation. The thermal insulation is all about altering the temperature of surfaces in order to stop moisture forming.
Can a Grafo therm be sprayed on a roof?

Incorporates a highly effective fungicide to prevent mould forming and fungal growth. White/light grey in colour which matches common container interiors.
Can a Grafo therm be used on a shipping container?
Grafo-Therm a great permanent condensation solution for containers – see below for full details. A shipping container can be considered a little like a very big metal can. Even when wind & watertight if sat static on your site you will find that condensation forms on the inside of the roof as the container cools down overnight.
What does Grafo therm do for solar heat?
Grafo-therm also increases light reflection and decreases both reverberating sound and solar heat gain.
