Absorgel Pouch HIP – the high absorption inbox desiccant with humidity indicator
Absorgel Pouch HIP
A simple and safe cargo desiccant in the form of a gel pad. The unit will start to activate once removed from its sealed package. The Absorgel Pouch HIP is non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
The active ingredient in the Absorgel Pouch HIP is calcium chloride, which has a superior ability to absorb moisture from the surrounding air, absorbing up to 300% of its weight. 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.
The Absorgel Pouch HIP comes with a transparent window and humidity indicator. Once the absorbent material seen through the window has the same colour as the window border it should be replaced with a new desiccant.
The quantity of Absorgel Pouch HIP required to successfully control moisture levels varies depending on a number of factors. Variables include the size and type of packaging, type of cargo shipped, shipment time, climatic conditions during journey and the length of time the products will be stored and protected at the destination. Pro-Ex can assist you to calculate the exact number of units required for your particular circumstances.
