Silica Gel White

White silica gel beads & crystals are used in higher humidity conditions (above 50% relative humidity) where stored or in-transit products are susceptible to damage. Thus the higher the humidity around the air, the higher the amount of water adsorbed before stability is reached. Silica gel’s magnificence is the physical adsorption of water vapor into its inner pores without any chemical reaction or side effects. Even when condensed with water vapor, silica gel still has a dry product’s physical appearance, and its shape remains unchanged. Silica Gel is one of the oldest and most popular desiccants and adsorbents used for many industrial and consumer applications. Sorbead India is one of the best manufacturers and suppliers of highly qualified silica gel white material in beads and crystals form.
