Robust protection

Ströbel topdry Desiccant

Ströbel Topdry™ desiccants provide optimal shipping and storage conditions in accordance with DIN 55473 and protect goods that are susceptible to moisture. Ströbel Topdry™ desiccants have a dust-proof shell that is filled with a natural product known as bentonite. Bentonite absorbs around 6 grams of water vapor per desiccant unit at 40% relative humidity, thus actively protecting automotive, steel, drugs, food and other products against corrosion and mould.

Obtaining impeccably dry packaging shouldn’t be left to chance!

Why not use our online tool to determine exactly how much desiccant you need.

Simply enter the storage and shipping time; and of course it’s essential for the products to have an effective aluminum composite or PE film barrier layer; for without this barrier layer, desiccant has virtually no effect because the moisture in the packaging cannot be perpetually absorbed.

Desiccants are sold as so called desiccant units (DU). 1 DU can absorb around 6 grams of water vapor.

Desiccant bag placement:

  • To prevent condensation from forming in moisture-resistant packaging, the desiccant bags should be placed in the upper portion of the packaging.
  • To maximize the protection period, seal the moisture barrier packaging immediately after the desiccant bag is placed in the packaging.
  • In so doing, make sure that only about 70 percent of the air in the moisture-resistant packaging is suctioned out of it, so as to preserve air circulation in the packaging and thus enable the desiccant bags to function properly
