Food grade silicone hose's ingredients and uses
In order to protect food from contamination which mainly comes from moisture or other toxic gases, which may create an odor, which is very unpleasant, silica gel is one of the most promising absorbents as known. It is important that the packaged food to be protected and must maintain its original characteristics or freshness for a long time duration. Silica gel is known to be a key absorbent for undesirable atmospheric hazards. The most important feature of silica gel ingredient is that it is porous, and granular. It was made from sodium silicate that was converted into silica, which was replaced with the "gel". It is also known as a very hard and elastic mineral that attracts moisture. It is usually found in beads and small packets packed in TYVEK paper, allowing the interaction of moisture and silica gel. It is a very popular desiccant. In consideration of its performance, it is strongly recommended not to consume it .Each packet carries this warning. Multifunctional use of silica gel for food packaging Humidity is one of the biggest culprits of food contamination. Fortunately, silica gel has the huge advantage of absorbing approximately 40% of its own weight and volume. These messages have different results depending on the volume of the food that needs to be protected. The most silicone sachets are packed in suitable materials that promote the absorption of moisture and harmful elements that may affect food. Generally, it is made from Tyvek or polyester fabric. Another important consideration when using silica gel is that it can be regenerated or used multiple times. In this case, the only requirement is to heat it to a precise temperature (approximately 2 hours at about 250*F) to release all the unwanted storage materials in its pores. Especially in the case of isomalt and candied boil, it is easy to absorb water, silica gel is the perfect choice to maintain their longevity. These products are especially known to obtain stickiness in the presence of moisture. Such properties and functions make silicone an ideal choice for keeping products away from moisture.
