How to select desiccant silica gel

Proper selection of the right desiccant silica gel can be inexpensive insurance for protecting your packaged product. Product quality can be improved, resulting in reduced or eliminated customer rejections. When dealing with moisture problems in packaging, a wide array of variables can make it difficult or confusing to develop solutions. These variables can be classified into two main groups: 1) those pertaining to the product, its package, and the environment; 2) the physical and chemical properties of commercially available desiccants. Formal testing can become quite costly in time and money, and the purpose of this entry is to provide basic information about currently available desiccants and their properties.
