Having collaborated with polymer specialists DuPont, SkyCargo is set to roll out its new white cover cargo solution named Xtreme.

Made featuring DuPont’s lightweight Tyvek Xtreme W50 polyethylene material, the cover acts as a shield to protect temperature-sensistive cargo from both varying hot and cold conditions, using its combined solar heat reflection and conduction barrier capabilities.

Breathability is an additional functionality of the latest white cover, enabling water vapour to escape, preventing condensation from forming and affecting the integrity of the cargo.

Xtreme will be aimed primarily at the transportation of pharmaceuticals, following on from April 2016’s release of White Cover Advanced that is able to control increases in heat. With White Cover Xtreme being effective in all weather conditions, the product is likely to be used for similar measures to a greater effect.

The cargo protection will be rolled out exclusively on board SkyCargo flights, with Emirates operating a fleet of 259 freight-suitable aircraft.

White Cover Xtreme will be available in late August of this year, the latest product of Dupont and SkyCargo’s ongoing partnership that is set to last until 2019 having been renewed at Air Cargo Munich in May.
