Description

Desiccants are ideal for protecting packaging and enclosure contents that are susceptible to damage from moisture such as electronic components.

Desiccant bags are a hydrating agent which attract moisture from the atmosphere. They offer the ideal solution for protecting moisture-sensitive goods. Desiccant bags are filled with high active agents; they offer the ideal solution for the protection of moisture – sensitive goods. The desiccant’s absorption capacity can be as high as 30% of its weight. It is non-toxic for metal or any material. It is a hydrating agent which attracts moisture from the atmosphere. It absorbs and holds particles of water to itself. For maximum effectiveness, desiccants should be used within a closed/sealed moisture barrier bag. The activated clay is environmentally friendly as it is chemically inert and non-toxic which makes it safe to handle and therefore can be easily disposed of. The clay desiccants are clean, room compatible and have sulphur-free Tyvek bags for use in the electronic industry. 1 unit = 35grams of clay.

The addition of Humidity Indicator Cards (HIC) allow a visual check of the humidity levels inside enclosures or packaged items. This also gives a fast evaluation of the desiccant’s performance.

Clay

The desiccant clay is an effective and inexpensive static desiccant, which is enclosed in Tyvek, it will absorb moisture from sealed spaces to prevent corrosion and mould growth. It is widely used in military industries, precision instrument machinery electric and metal products, pharmaceutical, clothing and foodstuff leather.

Bentonite clay is a naturally occurring mineral as opposed to a chemically synthesised absorbent. Therefore it is more economical than silica gel or molecular sieves. The performance curve exceeds both industry standards, and the silica gel performance curve for these same specifications.

At 20% RH, the activated clay bags will absorb 50% more moisture than required by industry standards, whereas silica gel will only absorb 3.5% more moisture than industry standards require. The packaging is sealed inside a waterproof and moisture vapour-proof container with the inclusion of a desiccant to prevent rust, mildew or corrosion damage. In Method II packaging, the package is maintained at a safe humidity below 40% RH during the normal storage period of 18 months to 2 years.
