pouch desiccant silica gel alternative


High absorption inbox desiccants

AbsorGel®Pouch are effective in controlling moisture inside of crates, cartons and other types of packaging to prevent mold, fungus, rust and other moisture related damages. The active ingredient in the AbsorGel®Pouch is calcium chloride, which has a superior ability to absorb moisture from the surrounding air compared to other types of inbox desiccants like the well known silica gel. AbsorGel®Pouch can absorb over 10 times more than traditional inbox desiccants. The absorbed water is bound into a gel so that no liquid water is formed.

We offer AbsorGel®Pouches with one or two layers for different applications:

1) AbsorGel®Pouch double layer with two layers of packaging material. See picture 1.

2) AbsorGel®Pouch single layer with one layer of packaging material. See picture 2.


How the AbsorGel®Pouch works

The AbsorGel®Pouch starts working as soon as it is removed from its transparent packaging. The calcium chloride absorbs moisture from the surrounding air passing in through its outer breathable packaging material. The AbsorGel®Pouch’s adhesive gel ensures absorbed moisture stays in the product.


Typical Applications

AbsorGel®Pouch can be used for almost any type of cargo that requires moisture protection. AbsorGel®Pouch with one layer of packaging is mainly used for crates and larger boxes, while AbsorGel®Pouch with two layers is preferred for smaller cartons and when the pouch will be in direct contact with the cargo.
