INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The more tightly enclosed, the more vapor-proof you can make the storage area being protected, the better. Otherwise, your silica gel will "drink up" moisture from all outdoors, becoming saturated and requiring reactivation so frequently as to be inconvenient. It's worth it to do your best to make the protected area as vapor-proof as possible. Remove the protective pouch in which your Hydrosorbent unit is packaged. Position your Hydrosorbent unit on an exposed surface anywhere within the enclosed area to be protected. Be sure that the end containing the indicator card is on the bottom so that the active ingredients rest on the indicator card. Examine the indicator from time to time to see if reactivation is required.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR REACTIVATION
When you first use silica gel in the area to be protected, it may become saturated rather quickly as it "drinks up" residual moisture. Once the residual dampness is removed, you can maintain a dry condition with less frequent need to reactivate the silica gel. Reactivation times below are minimums. Sometimes, when the silica gel becomes overly saturated, it's good practice to extend the reactivation period. However, do not vary from the recommended temperatures.
450 Gram Unit: Place the unit with the indicator card down, occasionally examining the card. When the center circle turns pink, reactivate the unit as follows: Remove bag of silica gel granules from the unit and place the bag in a vented 240 degree F oven for at least 3 hours. Replace the bag in the unit. (It may take several hours for the indicating circles to turn blue again.)
