Our desiccants are an excellent compliment to our moisture barrier bags when combating corrosion and damage from moisture or water vapor. Most of our desiccants are certified to MIL-D-3464 military specifications. We offer a range of desiccants to compliment and complete our corrosion protection solutions, including:
Molecular Sieve is the most aggressive of the primary desiccants and our first choice for the most demanding and unique applications. A distinctive feature of this non-hazardous synthetic product is our ability to control the uniformity of pore size openings during the manufacturing process.
Montmorillonite Clay is the least expensive of all desiccants and is a naturally occurring non-hazardous mineral composed of magnesium aluminum silicate (a calcium aluminum silicate type of hydros clay).
Silica gel is a granular form of silica that is made synthetically from sodium silicate. It is non-hazardous and can absorb upwards of 40% of its weight in water vapor at 100% humidity. It is a solid substance that is extremely porous, making it capable of absorbing high levels of moisture, it has the highest moisture adsorption capacity of any commercial desiccant making it one of the most effective ingredients for products designed to prevent corrosion during transportation and storage.
