The Pillow Pak is a quality desiccant that helps in absorbing gases, moisture and odour from the product packaging. It protects pharmaceuticals and food products from contamination due to toxins and moisture. There is a wide range of Pillow Pak choices available, including Silica Gel, Activated Carbon, clay, a blend of Silica Gel/Carbon and Molecular Sieve packaged in the FDA approved substrate of Tyvek. They are available in various sizes with the capability of absorbing humidity, odour, moisture and gases. These packets are often used for protecting medicines in bulk quantities within their packagings like capsules and tablets packed in bottles or other packagings, keeping the packing dehydrated and free of moisture. The process of absorption stops after the environment inside packaging achieves stable equilibrium increasing the shelf-life of packaged products.
The Pillow Pak desiccants are water-resistant and have a high rate of vapour transmission. These are used extensively in food packaging, healthcare and other industries to maintain the quality and integrity of products from the beginning of the supply chain to delivery to the customers. Clients can also order customised blends, such as 50% carbon to absorb odour and 50% silica gel to absorb carbon. The custom Pillow Pak blends provide more powerful absorption results for moisture and odour absorption for particular applications and protect for a more extended period. The standard Pillow Paks have indicating silica gel packaged in superior quality Tyvek material, which is durable, non-dusting and durable. The FDA approved ink is compliant with the directives of food authorities.
