Atmospheric moisture and adverse weather conditions can cause transit damage to
commercial items should they not be packaged well enough. Items that are particularly
susceptible to aesthetic and/or physical moisture damage include optical equipment,
electrical goods and items of clothing. The addition of a desiccant – such as silica
gel – to packages, however, can help to maintain the high quality of items prepared
for delivery or placed into storage.
Silica gel absorbs unwanted moisture from parcels and containers before it has a
chance to impact the goods within with rust or corrosion damage. Even when wet,
our silica gel packs remain dry and free flowing, meaning they are a reliable solution.
The required size of the desiccant silica packet will very much depend on the chosen
application. It is recommended that:

Kite’s container desiccant is specially designed to be used in a shipping container, with a hook attached for ease of use. Being made from calcium chloride rather than silica gel the container desiccant is much more effective over longer periods of time and can absorb up to 600% of its own weight.
For shipping containers we recommend:
Natural moisture adsorption sachets designed to prevent goods from water damage. Range of sizes available.
Molecular sieve desiccant
Highly effective desiccant made from a strong blend of moisture adsorption qualities. Popular option for low-temperature applications.
VCI paper (volatile corrosion inhibitor)
Volatile corrosion inhibitor paper to protect against the corrosion and rust of ferrous metals.
