Clariant’s Sorb-ITTM silica gel desiccants packets adsorb moisture inside packages and sealed containers that hold pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, medical products, and devices. By adsorbing moisture, these desiccants prevent moisture-related damage while helping to preserve product efficacy and shelf life. Our small desiccant packets are perfectly sized to protect the contents of individual pharmaceutical bottles and product packages.

Sorb-ITTM silica gel beads desiccants are a synthetic material made of highly porous amorphous silicon oxide. Clariant offers a standard range, packed safely in cartons. For special end use requirements, packets can be filled alternatively with bentonite clay or molecular sieve.

The desiccant packet is part of the final product packaging and enables the end user in a flexible way to protect goods by different packaging methods, especially at small sizes.
