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). It is this structure that makes silica gel a high capacity desiccant. Water molecules adhere to the gels surface because it exhibits a lower vapour pressure than the surrounding air. When an equilibrium of equal pressure is reached,no more adsorption occurs.

Silica Gel can adsorb up to 40% of its weight in moisture and has the highest absorption capacity of any commercially used desiccant. Our loose white silica gel beads are non-indicating, inert and non toxic.

Silica Gel is used where processes and products need to be protected from the negative consequences of humidity and moisture: such as:

  • Breathing filter for electric transformers
  • Silos and storage tanks
  • Packing material
  • Laboratories
  • Home and hobby
  • Boating, Yachts
  • Sports equipment
  • Flower drying
