All of the desiccant bags detailed below conform to NATO regulations and provide an economic way of protecting against moisture damage during transit and storage.
Silica gel desiccant is synthetically produced from sodium silicate and has an absorption capacity of approximately 25% (by weight) at a relative humidity of 50% at 25°C.
Silica gel bags are ideal for general packaging applications, electrical/electronic enclosures and communications equipment.
The addition of a colour change indicator card will provide a visual indication of the relative humidity level within the packaging or enclosure. This provides an important check to ensure that the desiccant is still active.
