A desiccant is a hygroscopic material that serves to maintain a state of dryness. It is the opposite of a humectant which serves to promote moisture retention. Desiccants eliminate humidity from the air and create and sustain a moisture-free environment.

Moisture can create an environment that promotes the growth of bacteria and mold. Moisture can also cause rust and damage to electrical components. When shipping or storing products, moisture needs to be controlled to keep products unspoiled. Desiccants offer a very effective solution to control levels of moisture especially in containers and packaging.

All shippping containers are susceptible to moisture. The moisture content of the air during load as well as the temperature during transit both impact the moisture level in the shipping container. Moisture trapped in the container condenses to the cooler areas and as the temperature rises, condensation accumulates on the walls and ceiling.

If you have even a small amount of experience with air drying and desiccants, you have probably heard about Activated Alumina because of its benefits and fantastic features for the job at hand. For example, a large surface area and many pores allow the adsorbent to take in and hold more moisture than most other options. Furthermore, it manages to hold said moisture without changing dramatically with chemicals or even its physical appearance.
