We can offer the same to you in various Grades, as desired by you. Silica Gel is a granular, vitreous, porous form of silicon dioxide made synthetically from sodium silicate. Silica gel is tough and hard; it is more solid than common household gels like gelatin or agar. It is a naturally occurring mineral that is purified and processed into either granular or beaded form. As a desiccant, it has an average pore size of 2.4 nanometers and has a strong affinity for water molecules. Silica gel is most commonly encountered in everyday life as beads in a small (typically 2 by 3 centimetre (0.79 in × 1.2 in)) paper packet. In this form, it is used as a desiccant to control local humidity in order to avoid spoilage or degradation of some goods.
