Silica Gel

Zigma Chemicals & other four associated factories (A part of Zigma group) produce different grades of Silica Gel white suitable for many industries. Silica gel will not indicate any colour change when they become saturated with moisture because of no indicator used during manufacturing process. This ideally means that silica gel crystals will remain white when they become saturated. This kind of silica gel is commonly used in preserving some items and to reduce humidity for those items while storage. Silica gel white (non indicating silica gel) is one of the oldest and most popular desiccant and adsorbent used for a wide number of industrial and consumer applications.
