Silica Gel Beads (Loose)

Silica gel is an amorphous form of silicon dioxide, which is synthetically produced in the form of hard irregular granules (having the appearance of crystals) or hard regular beads. A microporous structure of interlocking cavities gives a very high surface area (800 square meters per gram). Water molecules adhere to the gels surface because it exhibits a lower vapour pressure than the surrounding air. Even when saturated with water vapour, silica gel still has the appearance of a dry product, its shape unchanged. Silica gel is one of the oldest and most popular desiccant and adsorbent used for a wide number of industrial and consumer applications
