In-box desiccants are mainly used to protect the goods from inside a cardboard box or a polybag. Typical applications are garments and shoes, but also components of metal, spare parts etc. Often used as a compliment or replacement to VCI bags. AbsorGel Pouches are available in different types. The active ingredient is calcium chloride, which has a superior ability to absorb moisture from the surrounding air. Friendly on the environment and on those who use our products.

Main specifications

Made of a single layer of permeable material, Tyvek®. Permeable from one side, meaning the bottom side can be in contact with metal. Used for critical applications. Can be produced in “rip-off” sheets. Absorbing agent is calcium chloride (CaCl2) mixed with starch. The calcium chloride absorbs moisture from the surrounding air passing in through its outer breathable packaging material. The adhesive gel ensures absorbed moisture stays in the product. AbsorGel Pouch X is a single-use product and can be disposed as regular waste. The calcium chloride and starch are non-toxic and the polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) plastics are recyclable. Our new generation of AbsorGel Pouches contains less PE-plastic than before. Produced in Absortech’s own plants. Available in sizes: 100, 125 grams.
