Dimensioning according to Guideline Value for Storage by Desiccant Units (DU)

Please note:

The values in the chart describe the amount of DU required per m² of foil for storage in the respective climate zones. The condition is that the merchandise packaged does not contain any moisture itself.

For storage periods of max. of 1 year, we recommend a foil made of polyethylene (PE) at least 0.2 mm thick.

For a storage period of up to five years, we recommend a foil made of barrier-layer material (composite foil made of PE and Al).
