Silica Gel is a hard granular or beaded desiccant with the appearance similar to glass. It is slightly softer than ordinary window glass, odorless, insoluble and non-conductor of electricity.

Its action in adsorbing is purely physical and there is no change in size or shape of the particles as it absorbs vapors. Silica Gel has a large internal surface area which gives it a large adsorptive capacity.

It meets the requirements of Military Mil-D-3716, Type I and II, Grade H.


Silica Gel is used in various industries such as: Natural Gas, Refining Companies, Chemical and Petrochemical, Industrial Gases, Refrigeration, Insulating Glass, Commercial and Military Packaging, Telecommunications and Power Companies.
