300-B Blue Silica Gel Desiccant

RTC# 91103,

300-B Blue Silica Gel Desiccant (1.75 lb can). 300-B (grade 42) silica gel meets the requirements of the military specification mil-d-3716 for type vi grade h (high absorption capacity). Silica gel is a blue activation silica that gradually changes from deep blue in an activated condition to a pale pink in the saturated condition. Each color shade corresponds to definite relative humidity. Silica gel can be reactivated by heating to 350 degreesĀ F in a clean atmosphere until it comes blue again. Silica gel is an amorphous extremely porous form of silica. It is slightly softer than window glass; it is odorless, insoluble, and a non-conductor of electricity. Its action in absorbing moisture is purely physical and there is no change in the size or shape of the particle as it absorbs vapors.
