3M Removes Ship Hold on Moisture Barrier Bags: Dri-Shield 2000, 2700, 3000, & 3400 Series Available for Purchase

Back in late August/early September, we reported that 3M™ had placed a shipping hold on a number of their Moisture Barrier Bags (Dri-Shield 2000, 2700, 3000 and 3400 Series). We have now been informed that the shipping hold has been removed and these bags are once again available for purchase.

Yesterday, November 4th, we received the following information from 3M:

This letter is to notify you that all 3M Moisture Barrier Bag products previously placed on ship hold have been released from ship hold and are available for sale. We apologize for any inconvenience you have experienced during the period of this ship hold, as we investigated the Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR) performance of these bags.

3M’s ship hold allowed them to have two different MVTR tests, including using MOCON™ infrared sensing technology and MIL-STD-3010C Test Method 3030 gravimetric testing, performed by qualified third parties. 3M is advising that users of these bags re-evaluate the MVTR performance to ensure that it meets their application needs.

The following charts* contain the MVTR performance and other data results from 3M’s latest testing:
