3,000,000 square feet of moisture-adsorbing surface area in 1 pound
This efficient drying is carried out by a hard, clear, porous, beaded, amorphous form of silica gel. The desiccant has a myriad of microscopic pores which explains its great moisture-attracting capacity. Translucent beads look and feel dry even when saturated. Dust-free and attrition-proof. May be regenerated by heating with no loss of efficiency. Approximate volume of 1 pound (454 grams) of bulk desiccant is 0.53 quart (0.5 liter).
