Desiccants are hygroscopic substances that can adsorb moisture, liquids, or gases from the surrounding environment. The most commonly found Desiccants are Silica Gel, Activated Clay, and Molecular Sieve.
Stream Peak’s desiccants can also be packed into the following types of substrates.
You can also choose to have your desiccants in sachet or strip packing.
Available in different shape and sizes, such as round and oval. The active ingredients of desiccants are incorporated into the polymer. It offers an air-tight, leak proof, and controlled environment to help maintain product stability and prolong shelf-life. It can also be customised to a shape, size, and colour.
Using a certain technology to combine precise amounts of desiccant with polymer to produce rigid packaging with built-in moisture protection. This moisture protective packaging is ideal for pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and various other applications.
Available in almost any shape or sizes. It can be cut accordingly and contoured to reach inaccessible spaces. It can also serve as an insulator or fixture, providing a uniform environment for complete moisture control. Paper Desiccant has packaging applications in photographic films, cryogenic pumps, dried foods, pharmaceuticals, electronic components, instruments, and spare parts.
Canister Desiccant is silica filled into a cylindrical-shaped plastic housing with a ventilated card covering the top. A range of canister size is available to easily accommodate most bottle sizes. It is the most widely accepted desiccant form used in the pharmaceutical industry.
It is a moisture-sensitive silica material which absorbs and desorbs moisture in order to offset changes in relative humidity. In the range of 40 – 70% RH, it has over five times the moisture buffering capacity of regular Silica Gel. Art Sorb is a highly efficient humidity control agent for the conservation of art. It will protect your heritage for future generations.
Moisture Adsorbing Polymers
Moisture Adsorbing Polymers are an alternative to conventional desiccants in sachet or other forms. It is engineered from the combination of polymers and adsorbent desiccants, allowing it to adsorb moisture, odours, and organic volatiles. It can be moulded and machined to suit applications where a desiccant is required to fit the available space that has a complex shape. The polymer can be readily fixed in place, using screw fasteners, adhesives or other mechanical retention methods. Low cost prototypes are available and it can be produced in low or high volume quantities. Typical applications include electronic, electrical, optical, telecommunications equipment, and packaging.
Moisture Adsorbing Board
Moisture Adsorbing Board is a practical alternative to conventional desiccant bags for applications where space is limited. The narrow thickness of the board allows it to access apertures which would be inaccessible to desiccant bags. Moisture Adsorbing Board can be cut to any size for easy installation and fixing. Moisture Adsorbing Board is available in a standard sheet size of 295mm x 205mm x 1.6mm or can be cut, punched or formed to meet customer's specific requirements.
