Amelco Desiccants Inc. provides a range of active, protective and intelligent packaging products for various industries for optimum product protection against harmful environmental factors thereby preserving quality and improved shelf life.
ELECTRONICS AND SEMICONDUCTORS
Electronics and Semiconductor products operate reliably well when protected from moisture and ESD. More often, specialized ESD moisture barrier and shielding bags are used in combination with desiccants and humidity indicating cards for a robust protection against contamination.
The efficacy of vitamins, medicines and diagnostic test kits are preserved and prolonged in a dry package. Amelco Desiccants provides a range of low-profile, compact desiccant packets to suit many small packaging applications for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, medical and diagnostic kits.
FREIGHT AND LOGISTICS
The harmful effects of cargo damage cause by condensation that occur during ocean transport can often translate to customer claims and lost revenue. In growing numbers however, exporters and shippers are learning that MEGASORB® container desiccant is the effective tool to combat moisture problems inside shipping containers, vans, trucks and crates.
FreshPicks® ethylene absorber packets ensure postharvest quality and freshness for longer periods by removing ethylene gas that is released by fruits, vegetables and cut flowers. Ethylene, a naturally produced plant hormone, induce ripening and senescence but can be safely removed to allow for an extended postharvest green life. FreshPicks® ethylene absorber packets allow shippers to transport and store fresh produce without fear of premature ripening and degradation.
Desiccants and oxygen absorbers allow food processors and exporters to extend the shelf life of pacged food products by preventing oxidation, rancidity, discoloration, and loss of flavor. and crunchiness. The absence of moisture and oxygen in the package environment retards the growth of bacteria, molds, mildew and insects for an optimum shelf life and quality.
