Oxygen Absorbers

Protection Experts Australia now offers a range of oxygen absorbers for protecting your products from damage due to oxidization.


Why use Oxygen Absorbers?

The main function of the oxygen absorbers is to remove oxygen and carbon dioxide in a closed container. An oxygen free environment can be reached within 24 hours at normal temperature.
