PROSorb is a new silica gel ideally suited for stabilizing relative humidity inside museum display cases and storage cabinets. 

The ideal level of humidity for most museum display cases and storage cabinets is a level between 40 - 60% RH (Relative Humidity). It is also desirable to maintain this level for as long as possible.

PROSorb has a unique and exceptional adsorption capacity within the 40 - 60% RH range (see graph), and surpasses all other products sold for this purpose.

PROSorb is able to maintain a stable RH within narrow margins through its ability to both absorb and desorb water vapour; and is provided pre-conditioned to your desired humidity level

PROSorb also has a longer life span than other silica gels

  • Free of chloridesPROSorb contains no lithium chloride, as some other products do (lithium chloride is a chemical - a salt, potentially harmful to many metals. This salt can be transferred to metals in dust or by human touch).PROSorb consists of 97% SiO2 und 3% Al2O3.
  • Low abrasionPROSorb beads produce less dust than other silica gels (abrasion< 0.05 weight-% according to MIL-D).
  • High bulk density: 1 kg PROSorb only needs a volume of ca. 1.5 l (much less than some other silica gels).
  • Long term stabilityPROSorb maintains its adsorption capacity longer than other products. After 10 years we found adsorption capacity of PRO SORB to have decreased by around 20%. In other words: PRO SORB conditioned to 50% RH and maintained at constant weight (e.g. sealed in an aluminium bag) would increase its conditioning by around 0,8 - 1 % RH per year (experimental values after 5 and 10 years). Values might depend on ambient conditions.
  • EconomicalPROSorb is much cheaper than the other products sold for the same purpose.
  • Temperature dependencyPROSorb  is conditioned in relation to temperature. PROSorb reacts in the same way organic materials do. Therefore there will be no, or little, transfer of water vapour between organic materials andPROSorb if the temperature changes. Under fluctuating temperatures, this property protects wooden objects and other organic materials from swelling or shrinking: The conditioning indicated on the labels refers to 20°C. At 10°C the conditioning of the cassettes will be around 1 – 1.5% RH lower, at 30°C around 1 – 1.5% RH higher.
