Art Sorb

Historic art pieces and artefacts are susceptible to damage caused by moisture and temperature fluctuations. Environmental humidity causes detrimental effects such as cracking, colour fading, and deformation.

Art sorb humidity controllers protect art pieces, historical artefacts, historical documents, paintings, and fragile fabrics from humidity damage. This moisture-controlling solution absorbs excess moisture and maintains stable humidity in a sealed environment.

With a lifespan of five years, they offer durable protection. For optimal utilisation of art sorb, position the humidity controllers at the bottom, sides, and top of display cases or enclose them within a protective box frame. These moisture controllers function even in high relative humidity conditions. They are available in non-woven sheets, cassettes, and beads, providing versatility to cater to various preservation requirements.
