Sorb-It® packaged silica gel desiccant is made from amorphous silicate. It is a hard, translucent material with an extremely high capacity for moisture at temperatures below 75°F and at humidity levels above 40% RH. Sorb-It Tyvek packets are designed to control moisture levels within packaged products. The function of Sorb-It when controlling moisture is like that of a tiny sponge with millions of microscopic pores. Under very low humidity conditions, a small amount of water vapor will be adsorbed in the smallest pores. As humidity increases, the large pores will begin to fill. Unlike a sponge, however, Sorb-It remains dry and free-flowing, even at maximum adsorption capacity.
Tyvek is made from a spunbonded olefin. Tyvek bags are made from high density polyethylene fibers, making them extremely tear-resistant. In addition, Tyvek is lightweight, flexible, smooth, low-linting, and is resistant to water, chemical abrasion, and aging.
Sorb-It Tyvek packets won’t promote corrosion and contains no sulfur, while meeting the requirements of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for direct contact with food and pharmaceuticals.
AGM’s Sorb-It Tyvek packets are available in gram sizes and typically used to protect small enclosures.
