Specifications
   Absorption (% Dry Weight):       Weight percent of the main component(s) such as %Al2O3 for alumina ceramics, %ZrO2 for zirconia ceramics, %SiC for silicon carbide ceramics, or %(Al2O3 + ZrO2) for alumina-zirconia ceramics.   
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Density:       Density is the mass per unit area for a material. The fired density is dependent on the theoretical density of 100% dense body and the actual porosity retained after processing.  
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Material Type
   Material Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Activated Alumina       Activated alumina is an aluminum oxide that is highly porous and exhibits tremendous surface area. Activated alumina is resistant to thermal shock and abrasion and will not shrink, swell, soften, or disintegrate when immersed in water. 
   Activated Carbon       Roasting organic material until it decomposes into granules produces activated carbon. Coconut shells, wood, and bone are common sources.  Activated carbon is available in a variety of particle sizes. 
   Calcium Oxide       Calcium oxide, also known as quick lime, is a highly reactive chemical that reacts with water or carbon dioxide to form calcium hydroxide or calcium carbonate. 
   Calcium Sulfate       Anhydrous calcium sulfate is commonly used as a desiccant that changes color when it is hydrated. 
   Clay / Silicates       Clay minerals such as montmorillonite, kaolinite, bentonite, veremiculite, or other aluminum silicate or calcium silicate materials. 
   Molecular Sieve / Zeolite       Molecular sieves are micro porous crystalline solids with well-defined structures. Generally they contain silicon, aluminum, and oxygen in their framework and, water and/or other molecules within their pores. Many occur naturally as minerals and are mined in many parts of the world. Others are synthetic and are made commercially for specific uses. Zeolites are the most common type of molecular sieve. 
   Polymer / Organic       Polymers and plastic materials that are organic, synthetic, or processed polymers. 
   Silica Gel / Silicon Dioxide       Silica gel is a matrix of hydrated silicon dioxide used with adsorption equipment. Silica, or silicon dioxide (SiO2), is the same material found in quartz. The gel form contains millions of tiny pores that can adsorb and hold moisture. Silica gel can adsorb about 40% of its weight in moisture and can take the relative humidity in a closed container down to about 40%. To reuse silica gel, simply heat it to above 300ºF (150ºC) until the moisture is evaporated away. 
   Sodium Carbonate       Sodium carbonate is a chemical compound that contains the oxyanion carbonate. Carbonate is composed of three oxygen atoms bound to a single carbon ion and contains an overall charge of -2. The anion, sodium, carries a charge of +1. It can be used as a water softener or absorbent cleaner. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary material. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Form       
   Your choices are...         
   Bulk / Raw Material       Sorbent materials are in the form of bulk solids, pellets, flakes, chunks, crushed material, or granules. 
   Pouch / Sack       Sorbent material is contained in a pouch or sack in order to prevent mixing of the material with the product to be treated. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Color Changing       Sorbent changes color when it is saturated.

   FDA Compliant       The sorbent meets requirements from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   MIL-D-3464 Compliant       Sorbents meet or exceed U.S. government standard MIL-SPEC MIL-D-3464E (packaged desiccants). 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Reactivating       Sorbent can be reactivated or regenerated so that the material can be reused. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
