Absorbents

Absorbents attract humidity and are necessary to help preserve the integrity of your equipment. Even when wrapped up, products are surrounded by air. Absorbents like Silica gel or Super Dry attracts the humidity within the wrapping, consequently preventing corrosion or humidity damage.

Metal corrosion can generally be avoided if we succeed in keeping the Relative Humidity (RH) below 50 percent. Silica gel is made from silicon oxide and is supplied as powder or granulation.

Silica gel is capable of absorbing approx. 40 percent of its own weight with water.  “Super Dry” is a desiccant with a proven absorption capacity of more than 300% of its own weight. Different absorbents have differing applications – we can help advise you in choosing the right one for your need. We keep several types of absorbents in stock.
