Silica get packets can be used to protect your valuables and supplies from moisture damage by absorbing and trapping water vapour in the air, preventing the formation of rust, mould & mildew, as well as minimising spoilage in food products.

Unlike some other desiccants, silica gel does not become wet, or swell in size as it adsorbs water vapour. It is also non-corrosive, non-toxic, odourless, chemically inert, does not form by-products and has a low dust emission rate, making it safe for use with sensitive equipment.

Orange - White Indicating Silica Gel

These packets contain orange indicating silica gel (mixed with regular white non-indicating silica gel), which will change colour based on how much moisture it has adsorbed.

The indicating silica gel is orange when empty, and gradually turns white as it adsorbs moisture. The indicating silica gel is completely white once it has reached 60-70% of its total moisture holding capacity. This allows the user to easily tell when the silica gel needs to be replaced or reactivated.

Packet Material - Verna

Verna is highly tear-resistant, mould-resistant, has good sealing strength, contains no harmful substances and is also relatively transparent, allowing the user to easily check the colour of the indicating silica gel inside.

Although Verna itself has a high melting point, the glue that holds these packets together cannot withstand the 100 degree temperatures required to reactivate the silica gel inside, so reactivation using an oven is not viable.

Verna is made of PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) non-woven fabric and PE (Polyethylene) bicomponent spunbond non-woven adhesive.

Desiccant with Verna packaging is applied in storage, military, shipping and many other industries that require dehumidification.
