Art Sorb is a humidity controller for artwork, artefacts, and cultural assets. It is a moisture sensitive silica material which adsorbs and desorbs moisture to maintain a constant humidity in a sealed environment.
Ordinary silica desiccants only take in moisture, which might result in an overly dry environment that is not optimal for precious art works. Able to react fast enough to humidity changes, Art Sorb provides precise humidity control in environments between 40 – 70% relative humidity.
Climatic changes in temperature and humidity can degrade pieces of art and historical artefacts over time, causing colour fading, cracking, and deformation. Although air conditioning mitigates the effects of heat and humidity, a stable microclimate is still required to preserve your artworks and artefacts. Art Sorb minimises the deterioration of fine pieces of art and history from climatic fluctuations, protecting your heritage items for future generations.
