Blue Indicating Silica Gel Typical Applications
Blue indicating silica gel is frequently used with:
Due to the addition of the moisture indicator, sSORB® Blue Silica Gel should not be used in contact with products intended for consumption such as food or pharmaceuticals.
Blue indicating silica gel’s high specific surface area (around 800 m2/g) allows it to adsorb water readily, making it useful as a desiccant (drying agent). Silica gel is often described as “absorbing” moisture, which may be appropriate when the gel’s microscopic structure is ignored, as in silica gel packs or other products. However, material silica gel removes moisture by adsorption onto the surface of its numerous pores rather than by absorption into the bulk of the gel.
