|Reported cases of sweat damage in containers show that all three of the main processes of sweat formation may occur in closed containers, these being:
- Container sweat in radiation weather
- Condensation on the container wall, i.e. "container sweat", during voyages with a drop in air temperature due to changing climatic conditions.
- Formation of cargo sweat during voyages involving a rise in air temperature and dew point temperature of the external air due to changing climatic conditions, where the external air is able to penetrate the container or in the case of open containers
