Guaranteed protection against moisture for goods and equipment using high-quality desiccants

Article

If moisture begins to accumulate in a storage unit, all the belongings can be damaged. Excessive dampness can lead, for example, to mould, corrosion and rust.

Algol Chemicals’ partner TROPACK, Germany’s leading desiccant bag manufacturer, has proven expertise in the protection of stock and packaging from corrosion. Tropack’s desiccant solutions meet the highest standards of various industries, including the pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, automotive and electronics sectors.

Tropack’s high-quality desiccants provide guaranteed protection for goods and equipment, thereby eliminating any unnecessary costs:

  • No transportation damage or storage damage caused by moisture or microorganisms
  • Greater reliability and cost-effectiveness thanks to calculable packaging solutions
  • Complaints minimised
  • Reduction in insurance premiums (no risk exclusions)
  • Longer lasting components and machinery during operation
  • Environmentally friendly desiccant disposal

Tropack’s product range comprises loose desiccants, highly activated desiccant bags, container desiccants, desiccant capsules, desiccant cartridges and solutions for the automotive, pharmaceuticals and food industries, as well as indicators and packaging aids.

Standard TROPAgel® desiccant bags contain clay/bentonite or silica/white gel. One of the TROPAgel® desiccants is called “Rubingel”. Rubingel desiccant bags are filled with a highly effective colour-indicating silica gel, which serves as a reliable way of assessing anti-moisture functions. The ruby colour indicates that the desiccant is active, and as the moisture loading increases, the gel turns from ruby red to yellow. The special indicator contained in Rubingel enables highly accurate visual checks of the desiccant’s saturation level, thereby more effectively protecting pharmaceuticals, diagnostic products, and all kinds of machinery and goods against moisture damage.

DIN 55473-certified Rubingel desiccant bags provide reliable protection against moisture and corrosion. The desiccant bags’ adsorption capacity is up to 30% of their own weight at 25°C and 80% relative humidity. They are environmentally friendly and can be easily disposed of as household waste.

Tropack’s German-based production guarantees high, reliable and certified quality. At Algol Chemicals we are pleased to cooperate with Tropack and help our customers find the right solution for their needs in desiccants.
