Moisture Absorber Dehumidifier Pouches : Desiccant Information & Instructions

Considered a desiccant, our pouches regulate moisture and sustain dryness. They are patented to absorb condensation or "cargo sweat" inside international oceanic shipping containers.

Our heat sealed pouches are constructed with a Tyvek® and  polyethylene film filled witha  proprietary formulation of non-toxic moisture absorbing vermiculite and calcium chloride that induces or sustains a state of dryness in any environment inside its sealed vicinity.

Why Desiccants Are Used

Desiccants are commonly encountered in the transportation, shipping and secondary packaging of pharmaceutical, electronics, food and manufacturing industries as a way to prolong, preserve and protect items against mold, mildew and corrosive rust damages. Ours are specially designed for protecting the interiors of RV's, boats, cars or items placed in storage sheds, vaults, safes, lockers, display cases, compartments, cartons, equipment bags and more.

How to Use Desiccants

Our innovative desiccants are very simple and quick to use. To activate, remove the  7” x 11” desiccant from the outer packaging and place pouch with the Tyvek® side facing upwards.  Place an appropriate number of pouches throughout the area to be treated and seal shut - one pack will effectively treat 36 cubic feet (3' x 4' x 3').

Safe For All Surfaces & Non-Leaching!

Our moisture absorber pouches are non-corrosive and safe for all surfaces and fabrics. You can place our desiccant pouches directly the surface or you can tuck the pouch inside the optional protective cloth bag or netting.  Our cloth bag will not affect the moisture absorbing technology and it can either be hung or placed directly on a surface. At no time during the treatment cycle will they ever leach, drip or create water by-product and they do not have to be removed when using a vehicle or boat.

Performance Features / Disposal

A fresh absorber pouch weighs about 6 ounces and feels “crunchy” when first taken out of the packaging. The internal flakes are designed to attract, capture and convert moisture preventing potential mold, mildew or corrosion damages to sealed interiors up to 90+ days (depending on humidity). Our innovative pouches automatically shut “off” and turn "on" only in the presence of moisture which influences the duration. We advise (if possible) to periodically check the pouches around 45 to 60 days to insure peak protection.   When the desiccant has reached its capacity, it will feel like a sand bag and weigh around 1-1/2 lbs. Dispose safely in household trash.

Helpful Hints

  • If you need to store or protect items beyond the 60-90 day threshold, simply add a few more bags to the treated area!
  • Our desiccants are air activated and it's very important to keep any unused desiccants air tight.  A moisture barrier or vaccum seal bag is preferred.
  • To insure peak protection, if possible check pouches during hot, humid weather or when temperatures are regularly flucuating around 45-60 days.
  • Ideal for seasonal storage - awesome for in-season use!
