Absorgel Pouches

ABSORGEL® Pouch is a simple and safe shipping/container desiccant in the form of a gel pad. It is based on the proven ability of calcium chloride to aggressively remove moisture from the air. The ABSORGEL® Pouch will start to activate once removed from its sealed package. It is designed to be a versatile and flexible desiccant. With adhesive backing, it can be mounted on the container wall, on the side or on top of pallets or simply packed between packaged cargo.
Absorgel Pouches are effective in controlling moisture inside of crates, cartons and other types of packaging to prevent mold, fungus, rust and other moisture related damages. The active ingredient in the Absorgel Pouch is calcium chloride, which has a superior ability to absorb moisture from the surrounding air. Absorgel Pouches can absorb over 10 times more than traditional inbox desiccants. The absorbed water is bound into a gel so that no liquid water is formed.
