These modem days usage of aesthetic valued fashionable items, such as leather products, shoes, bags, etc has become more important. Whereas, preserving the inherent nature of these products is a challenge against mold formation (moisture). Hence, the best way for storage for months is by removing moisture from the surroundings, which is one of the important components for mold growth. These molds not only damage the leather goods but also create a bad odor which is of main concern. Silica gel in bead form acts as a desiccant in absorbing moisture from the surroundings, therefore employed in Leather Industries.
Silica gel is used in breather transformers for controlling the level of moisture and prevents it from entering the equipment. They are mainly useful in protecting the transformer oil from the damaging effects of moisture.
