Desiccant Sachets for Moisture Protection


Clariant manufactures an array of adsorbent bags, such as silica gel bags and bentonite clay bags, used to protect bulk pharmaceuticals in their final multi-count packaging as well as in-process tablets and capsules prior to bottling or blister packaging. Desiccant bags are available with silica gel (Sorb-It®), bentonite clay (Desi-Pak®) and molecular sieve (Tri-Sorb®), depending on the desired adsorption characteristics. These fills are packaged inside porous nonwoven materials that allow them to effectively adsorb moisture to maintain a dry package environment.

All materials, including nonwoven substrates and inks, are US FDA compliant for direct contact with food and drugs.

For the protection of industrial packaging, Clariant's Cargo & Device Protection business line offers desiccant bags for industrial applications such as military, electronic devices, foods, machinery, and oxygen absorbers for food packaging. Benefits include:

  • Desiccant bags effectively adsorb moisture in product packaging to combat its damaging effects including corrosion, mold and degradation.
  • Compliance to relevant industry and government standards including 21 CFR.
  • Typical applications include pharmaceutical ingredients, bulk tablets and capsules, packaged drug products and sensitive medical devices.
