Calcium chloride desiccant can be applied to life, such as: shoes, bags, furniture, electronic instruments, hardware, etc., can also be applied to maritime container transportation and other aspects. So what is the chemical change process during its absorption? Will it leak?
**First, the powder before moisture absorption
The inside of calcium chloride itself is white powdery before moisture absorption.
**Second, start to absorb moisture
Moisture absorption will slowly penetrate from all sides to the middle, and there will be a noticeable color change.
**Third, there is a clump
Because calcium chloride will produce a chemical reaction when it absorbs moisture, it will slowly change from powder to hard and agglomerate, and at this time there will be a clump.
**Fourth, into a semi-fluid form
As the moisture increases, the semi-fluid state gradually forms inside the desiccant, and the water vapor in the humid air can still continue to be absorbed.
**Fifth, solidify into a gelatinous form
At this time, the calcium chloride desiccant slowly solidifies into a jelly-like gelatinous substance, and the hygroscopic state begins to approach saturation, but it can still be absorbed.
**Sixth, moisture absorption is complete
After absorbing moisture, the inside is a gelatinous jelly, there is no water, and there will be no leakage.
