Product Description

Silica gel is a granular, vitreous, porous form of silicon dioxide made synthetically from sodium silicate. Silica gel contains a nano-porous silica micro-structure, suspended inside a liquid. Most applications of silica gel require it to be dried, in which case it is called silica xerogel. For practical purposes, silica gel is often interchangeable with silica xerogel. Silica xerogel is tough and hard; it is more solid than common household gels like gelatin or agar. It is a naturally occurring mineral that is purified and processed into either granular or beaded form. As a desiccant, it has an average pore size of 2.4 nanometers and has a strong affinity for water molecules.


Mineral Desiccant is the new generation environmental protection type mineral desiccant, it regard natural mineral as the raw material, processing and manufactured with activated hygroscopic agent, it has the characteristic such as non-toxic, free from pollution, decompose naturally. A kind of natural mineral desiccant made from a series of process, like crushing, activation, granulation and drying. The moisture absorption capacity is relatively highly with cheap price, even used in the extreme high temperature and high humidity conditions.

FAQ


Q: Why Use Desiccants? 

A: Moisture is the main enemy of any collection. Desiccants are an ideal humidity controller to prevent moisture related problems before they begin, creating a protective shield of dry air within any enclosed storage area. With their low cost, silica gel desiccants and mineral clay desiccant are the best choice for protection from moisture and extending shelf life.


Q: How much desiccant do I need?

A: It depends. The amount of desiccant required is usually dependent on the following factors:

  • volume of air space to be desiccated

  • nature of the material to be protected

  • moisture surrounding the package

  • type of desiccant to be used

  • length of time for protection

  • atmospheric conditions (temperature and relative humidity) when/where the product is sealed and during subsequent shipment and storage

    However, as a very rough guide, if moisture is reduced below around 30% RH, many moisture related problems will be prevented.


Q: If it's not harmful why do you print “Do not eat” on the package?

A: Because it's not food.The containers typically carry dire "Do Not Eat" and "Keep Away from Children" warnings
