Silica Gel Orange to Colorless 25 lb. Bag




Sorbead Orange is a heavy metal free, environmental-friendly humidity indicator for protection of goods and miscellaneous substances.

Sorbead Orange (part number: SGOR35) is an alumino-silicate gel in the form of hard spherical beads, with a very high resistance to crushing and a low attrition rate. Sorbead adsorbents have a longer life than most other adsorbents and can reduce operating costs in most applications.

Sorbead Orange is a beaded silica gel with very high mechanical integrity. The degree of moisture uptake is indicated by a color change from orange to colorless at 6% weight water loading. Sorbead Orange meets the demand for a heavy metal free and environmental friendly indicating agent.

Sorbead Orange (part number: SGOR35) is used where processes and products need to be protected from the negative consequences of humidity and moisture: such as:

  • Breathing filter for electric transformers
  • Silos and storage tanks
  • Packing material
  • Laboratories
  • Home and hobby
  • Boating, Yachts
  • Sports equipment
  • Flower drying
