Desiccant is a drying agent used to lower the moisture content of air inside a closed space, such as Moisture Barrier Bag.
Desiccant is packaged in fractional units in order to facilitate its usage with a variety of bag sizes.
In order to provide a complete moisture barrier packaging assembly, desiccant must be inserted into the bag, prior to having the bag vacuum sealed. The recommended amount of desiccant is dependent on the interior
volume of the packaging, the weather conditions while packaging and the required packaging life of the material as well as the transportation mode.For castings, forgings, machined components where the items are not individually packed the required amount of desiccant for exports may be around 10-15 pouches of VCI 19000 desiccant (50 gmpouch).
