A desiccant is a drying agent that is used to absorb moisture from the air inside moisture barrier bags. A desiccant absorbs moisture vapor (humidity) from the air left inside the barrier bag after it has been sealed. Any moisture that penetrates the bag will also be absorbed. A desiccant remains dry to the touch even when it is fully saturated with moisturevapor. Desiccant is sold by the “Unit” or fractional Unit, or in grams. One unit of desiccant will absorb a specific amount of moisture.
