Silica Gel - A Powerful Drying Agent for Many Applications
Silica gel from MilliporeSigma is a powerful drying agent suitable for drying practically all gases and liquids. It can thus be used in a wide range of applications, for instance in desiccators packed drying towers, for protecting moisture-sensitive substances during storage and transport or for maintaining the dryness of anhydrous solvents.
Silica gel has a high adsorptive capacity for moisture, and its performance is practically temperature-independent up to approx. 65°C. Another advantage of silica gel is its ease of use and disposal thanks to its high chemical inertness and non-toxicity.
In addition to white silica gel as granulates in different sizes or beads, MilliporeSigma also provides self-indicating silica gel with iron salt moisture indicator in beaded or granular form.
