      • DESICCANT TYPES

        Desiccant Questions? Call us. Desi Pak® (Bentonite Clay): Moisture Adsorbent Clariant’s Desi Pak bentonite clay desiccants are an effective and economical desiccant option. A calcium-rich montmorillonite, Desi Pak’s layered structure attracts and binds water molecules to its vast inner and outer surface area. Even at full water vapor capacity, Desi Pak remains dry and free-flowing with no apparent change in size, shape or texture. The adsorption capacity of Desi Pak is considerable even at low humidity levels and increases as relative humidity rises. Desi Pak’s adsorption rate is high enough to prove effective for most applications at low humidity. At high humidity levels, Desi Pak adsorbs moisture much more slowly than silica gel or molecular sieve, making handling less problematic. Desi Pak’s adsorption capacity as a function of temperature remains constant at constant relative humidity between 20°C and 50°C (however the rate may vary). Desi Pak products can be reactivated for multiple uses. Sorb-It® (Silica Gel): Moisture Adsorbent Clariant’s Sorb-It desiccants are made of highly porous amorphous silicon dioxide. Sorb-It binds water molecules in random intersection channels of various diameters and remains dry and free flowing, even after fully saturated with water vapor. Sorb-It’s adsorption capacity is relatively small at low humidity levels but increases as humidity rises. At high humidity levels, Sorb-It adsorbs moisture faster than desiccant clay. Sorb-It products can be reactivated for multiple uses. Getter Pak® (Carbon): Odor and Gas Adsorbent Getter products are designed to control objectionable odors and gases within packaged products. Made of activated carbon, Getter has a highly porous structure and surface area that attracts and bonds with gases and volatile organic molecules. Tri-Sorb® (Molecular Sieve): Moisture and Odor/Gas Adsorbent Tri-Sorb molecular sieve desiccants are the most aggressive of Clariant’s desiccant options. Based on the synthetic zeolite (molecular sieve) types 3A, 4A and 13X, these zeolites exhibit crystalline structures with well-defined and uniform pores of 3Å, 4Å and 10Å diameters respectively. Tri-Sorb adsorbs water vapor and gas molecules that fit into the pores. The adsorption capacity of Tri-Sorb is relatively high at low humidity levels and remains almost constant as relative humidity increases. The adsorption rate is also high at high humidity levels, where Tri-Sorb accepts moisture much faster than Desi Pak, making handling more difficult. The adsorption capacity of Tri-Sorb as a function of temperature remains constant at constant relative humidity and absolute humidity between 20°C and 50°C (however the rate may vary). 2-in-1 Pak® (Carbon and Bentonite Clay or Silica Gel): Moisture and Odor/Gas Adsorbent Clariant’s 2-in-1 products combine activated carbon with either bentonite clay or silica gel to control moisture, gas and odors simultaneously.

      • OXY-GUARD™ CASE READY MEAT OXYGEN ABSORBER

        Oxygen Absorber Questions? Call us. Oxy-Guard™ Case Ready Meat oxygen absorbers are specially formulated to achieve fast and efficient removal of oxygen from case ready meat packaging to maintain a low oxygen environment. This absence of oxygen safeguards meat's shelf life and appeal by slowing down the chemical oxidation of nutrients, color, fat and flavor, and the growth of aerobic spoilage organisms, during shipping and onward distribution. Oxy-Guard™ Case Ready Meat is offered in a variety of sizes based on the package size, and the residual air inside the package. It is designed to remove oxygen quickly and effectively from master packages, and remove any residual, or ingress of, oxygen during shipment and storage. Clariant also offers Oxy-Guard™ Oxygen Scavenging Packets , also known as oxygen absorbers, for packaged foods.

    • Industry Solutions

      Clariant Cargo and Device Protection’s advanced moisture protection technologies offer industry-leading solutions for a broad range of transport applications: from goods traveling in conventional cargo packaging and containers to shipment and storage of sensitive electronic and semiconductor devices.

      Protect Cargo during Transport and Export

      Intermodal transport – rail, truck, container ship – exposes cargo to a range of potentially damaging environmental conditions, including high humidity. Even mild humidity, if prolonged, can lead to mold, spoilage, corrosion, discoloration, caked powders, warped wood and other devaluation of products in transit. In some cases, condensation on the sides of containers and truck trailers can cause container rain, posing further risk to valuable product.

      For protection against such risk, Clariant Cargo & Device Protection offers innovative container desiccants that control moisture during shipment, as well as high-performance humidity indicators that alert shippers when humidity threatens their cargo. Clariant’s flagship product family, Container Dri® II container desiccants, offers high absorption capability in high humidity (>40 percent) scenarios to avoid container rain also known as cargo sweat. 

      Protect Electronics and Semiconductors against Moisture

      Excessive moisture can seriously degrade the performance of electronics and semiconductor devices during transport or storage. That’s why manufacturers across the entire electronics supply chain choose to incorporate Clariant’s innovative desiccants into their packaging to protect their products’ performance.

      Clariant offers a full range of industry-leading desiccants, humidity indicator cards and adsorbent technologies to protect your most sensitive devices. We also supply desiccants and humidity indicators for semiconductors and surface-mount devices that comply with standards established by the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC specification J-STD-033 for dry packing).

      Protect Packaged Foods against Oxygen Absorption

      In addition to moisture, oxygen left inside food packaging can affect the taste, texture and freshness and can ultimately lead to food spoilage. To help our customers’ maintain their high quality brands, Clariant offers Oxy-Guard ™ oxygen scavengers, also known as oxygen absorbers, that can be used in the packaging itself, thus eliminating the need to add preservatives or additives to food products. We offer Oxy-Guard in two customizable configurations to meet our customers’ needs: Packets and continuous strips for automatic insertion. To protect against oxidation and prolong shelf life, our Oxy-Guard line is designed to maintain oxygen levels of less than 0.01% inside a sealed package throughout its intended shelf life.

      • Moisture Protection in Electronic Devices

        Moisture can corrode sensitive electronic and semiconductor devices, and lead to erratic performance or even failure.

        This is a particular risk during shipment of electronics across different climate conditions. Moisture in the ambient air within a device can precipitate out when the temperature drops during transport or storage. Humidity can also permeate through plastic in a device housing, or via a gap or leak.

        Clariant Cargo & Device Protection manufactures the humidity indicator cards, desiccants and adsorbent technologies that can protect your sensitive electronics from damaging moisture.

        Humitector® humidity indicator cards monitor humidity within product packaging, and show a visible color shift if quality is threatened. To control moisture, ask about Clariant desiccant bags: Available in a broad range of sizes and configurations they fit inside most packaging.

        Many of our desiccants and humidity indicators comply with standards established by the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) (JEDEC specification J-STD-033 for dry packing) for high-quality protection of semiconductors and surface mount devices (SMD’s).

      • Oxygen Absorption Protection for Packaged Foods

        The presence of oxygen and moisture inside packaged food products can lead to a wide array of problems that ultimately result in food degradation, product loss and brand image. Both oxygen and moisture allow the formation and growth of aerobic microorganisms, such as bacteria, mold and fungi. When this happens, oils and fats in foods begin to turn rancid, leading to a change in color and an unpleasant odor. Additionally, foods can lose their vitamin and nutritional value once they are exposed to these oxidative conditions.

        To help our customers safely and efficiently protect their valuable products against such loss, Clariant offers Oxy-Guard™ Oxygen Scavengers, a line of customizable oxygen absorbers for food packaging. Rather than adding preservatives or additives directly to food products to prevent oxidation, our O2 absorber products allow the packaging to prevent oxidation, helping to meet consumers’ demands for more natural and preservative-free foods.

        Clariant offers Oxy-Guard absorbers in various sizes, as individual packets or continuous strip configurations for automatic insertion. Their high capacity for oxygen absorption helps to maintain oxygen levels of less than 0.01% inside sealed packages, and enables our customers to safely transport high-quality foods full of flavor, freshness and nutritional value.
