Moisture adsorbing polymer protects against humidity and moisture

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

Brownell has developed a new, mouldable, moisture absorbing polymer, with the versatility to be injection moulded. According to the company, it can be used as a practical alternative to conventional desiccant solutions for preventing condensation and corrosion within virtually any product or packaging.

Using a combination of polymers and adsorbent desiccants, this newly developed range of materials offer new and improved opportunities for preventing the deleterious effects of moisture and high humidity, including condensation and corrosion. Typical applications include automobiles, industrial control, marine applications and high voltage switch gear requires protection from the effects of humidity and moisture for reliable operation.

VMAP can be moulded or machined subject to the application. According to Brownell, this makes it suitable where complex shapes are needed to fit the available space. This versatility is also said to make it useful for low cost prototyping and high volume production quantities.
