Sorbead is a silica gel desiccant created for vast moisture & humidity.  Sorbead is designed to prolong the life time of a variety of products and procedures buy protecting against moisture and corrosion. These efficient alumino-silicate gels are hard round beads with a great resistance to being crushed allowing a long life-span.

Sorbead has demonstrated for years, its ability to perform in various systems and facilities; it has been an extremely successful adsorbent utilized in gas and steel production, chemical, and automotive industries.  In addition, it is used widely in the packaging market, and electrical and power stations; just about every industry.

Sorbead® properties are distinctive, its pore size and large active surface area allow for exceptional adsorption and drying capability which, together with the beaded shape, resistance to abrasion, low restoration temperatures and a longer life span provide for increased effectiveness due to decreased energy consumption, reduced operational costs, and elevated operational safety due to its design.

Sorbead Orange CHAMELEON®

Provides safe moisture indication without any concerns regarding carcinogenic ingredients. It also provides superior moisture indication with a crisp color change.


Sorbead R®

is a high performance adsorbent for dehydration of air, technical gases and liquids.


Sorbead WS®

Sorbead WS is the only 100 % water-resistant adsorbent with a high adsorption capacity. It is most frequently used as a protective layer in combination with Sorbead R or other adsorbents such as molecular sieves, activated alumina, activated carbons and catalysts in order to increase the reliability of the system.
