Desiccant bags to protect against humidity

Desiccant bag to protect goods

The desiccant bags of Grönheit & Weigel protect your goods effectively against humidity. Inside the bag, the biodegradable bentonite ensures the absorption through its cavities i.e. pores, layers or channels. The use of desiccant bags always includes the use of a layer cover.

This is either a PE-film or an aluminium compound film. The choice of the film depends on the duration of transport, storage periods, temperature fluctuation and humidity during transport. Welding the goods in film generates an isolated climatic zone. This calculated area as well as knowledge on its content (wood, air, goods to be protected) allows our employees to calculate the required number of desiccant bags according to DIN-norm 55474. Due to the compliance to this norm our bags do not pose risks to the environment or human health.


Our competent sales team is happy to assist you in calculating the adequate number of desiccant bags for your application.

    For harmonizing the calculation, the desiccant bags were specified into units according to DIN-Norm.


    1 Unit of siccative (Desiccant unit, TME) corresponds 28 grams of siccative


    The result of the calculation according to DIN 55474 represents the required amount of units of siccatives (TME).
