Silica gel Propasil


Made from amorphous silica, PROPASIL appears as a hard, semitransparent granular substance. Its moisture-absorbing capacity is very high changing with environmental conditions.

PROPASIL was developed to protect the product from damages caused by moisture. Thanks to its absorption capacity, PROPASIL reduces the dew point inside the packing during shipment, thus preserving its qualities and properties.

PROPASIL micro range is an extremely practical and highly absorbent products. It is the ideal solution for humidity problems in small spaces. Being highly compact it occupies minimal space within the package, while effectively absorbing the residual internal relative humidity.
