White Silica Gel Beaded 3-5mm (4X8 mesh)

Updated 2017

DelSORB® SG48B
Silica Gel, Type A, White, 3-5 mm, Beaded

CHEMICAL FORMULA SiO2 · nH2O

DelSORB® SG48B silica gel is the naturally occurring mineral silicon dioxide that has been purified and processed into a hard, smooth beaded form. It is also known as a narrow pore silica gel and has a vast network of interconnecting pores with diameters of 20-30Å. These pores have a strong affinity for moisture and use physical adsorption and capillary condensation to trap and hold it. Silica gel will remove moisture at temperatures as high as 220°F, but is best used at room temperature (70-90°F) and high relative humidity (60-90%Rh).
