Also known as a narrow pore silica gel, sSORB has a vast network of interconnecting pores with diameters of 20-30 Å. These pores have a strong affinity for moisture and use physical adsorption and capillary condensation to trap and hold it. Silica gel will remove moisture at temperatures as high as 220° F, but is best used at room temperature (70-90° F) and high relative humidity (60-90% Rh).
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.
