Pineapples, oceans & refrigerated containers

Standard

Shipping containers

At first you might be wondering what these three things have in common, but the answer is rather obvious. Pineapples will only grow successfully in certain geographical areas. For the rest of us, living in less exotic parts of the world, they become accessible because they are shipped around the world on great big ships, crossing the oceans. All the while, pineapples (and other tropical fruits, naturally) are stored in refrigerated containers. To make sure the produce stays fresh all the way to its final destination, the containers must be sealed really well. Which is where the Teroson branded sealant, Teroson MS 930 comes in.

One of the things that can change the properties of the seal and eventually cause failure of the product used is UV radiation. And there’s plenty of that on ships crossing oceans for weeks at a time. That’s why it’s extremely important that the sealant used is resistant enough to UV radiation to keep its full properties for the duration of the trip. Otherwise the beloved tropical delicacies might reach us looking rather less than appetising.
