Art Sorb

Historic art pieces and artefacts are highly vulnerable to damage due to moisture and temperature fluctuations. Environmental Humidity can damage valuable historical assets, resulting in cracking, colour fading or deformation.

Art sorb humidity controllers stabilise humidity and protect treasured historical documents, paintings, fragile fabrics and many other timeless pieces by maintaining the ideal moisture levels.

Humidity controllers are made from highly sensitive silica, which absorbs excess moisture and maintains stable humidity levels within the sealed environment. Due to climatic fluctuations, it is possible to prevent the degradation of art pieces through this maintenance-free and cost-effective solution to preserve heritage items.

Protect Art Pieces and Artifacts with Art Sorb Humidity Controller

High-quality humidity-absorbing solutions help preserve historical art, documents, delicate fabrics and many more from damage and deterioration. They have five-time moisture-absorbing capabilities compared to conventional silica gel products, work efficiently at high relative humidity levels, and are effective for up to five years.

Art sorb products are available in non-woven sheets, cassettes and beads. Use the humidity controllers by placing them at the bottom, sides and top of the display cases or within a frame inside a box.
