Container desiccant dry packs are specially formulated desiccant packs made from natural clay minerals with gelling polymers. Clay minerals have high surface area and high water absorption and hence can absorb moisture in the air. They can firmly hold the water molecules within the pore inside the clay. They have high adsorption capacity, particularly at high relative humidity condition. They have natural mineral composition and are non-hazardous, non-toxic and can be disposed as normal waste. They are also very easy to use in various forms.
