Desiccants are hygroscopic (moisture-adsorbent) substances that are packaged and used to protect a broad range of products from degradation due to moisture, helping to maintain product quality and shelf life. Two of the most widely used and well-known desiccants are bentonite clay and silica gel, which are used to protect products ranging from textiles, leather goods, electronics, metal components, and foods to pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and medical devices.

Packaging engineers responsible for ensuring the quality and shelf life of packaged products face a range of considerations when it comes to sourcing the desiccant that is right for their applications. Our white paper, found below, Bentonite desiccants - The natural, sustainable desiccant solution for moisture controlled packaging, examines the composition, moisture adsorption performance, production requirements, and environmental impact of bentonite clay and silica gel.
