Jewelry and Precious Metals- Cargo Desiccant Packs To Prevent Oxidation, Tarnishing, Rust, And Corrosion And Enhance Product Quality And Shelf Life

Sensitive products and materials such as jewelry and precious metals need to be well protected from the detrimental factors such as excess or varying levels of moisture, heat, dust, microorganisms, rust, corrosion, weather conditions, and humidity levels when storing, packaging, and transporting them for longer durations. Since jewelry and precious metals are commonly made of different metal substrates, they are highly susceptible to moisture levels and humidity and can lead to rust and corrosion making them damaged and unfit for use.

Cargo desiccant packs, such as silica gel packets, are used in the jewelry and precious metals packaging, storage, and transportation during cargo or shipping to protect and maintain the appearance of these valuable items, and can efficiently absorb up to 300% of their weight in moisture. Moisture, humidity, and exposure to air can cause damage to jewelry over time, particularly those made of metals like silver and gold, which are susceptible to tarnishing, wear and tear, and loss of texture and visual appeal, when exposed to moisture.

Silica gel packets contain tiny beads of silica, which have a high affinity for water molecules. When placed near jewelry, these beads absorb excess moisture from the surrounding environment, reducing the relative humidity and preventing the onset of tarnish and corrosion on metal surfaces. Desiccant packs are widely used in the jewelry and precious metals industry for packaging, storage, and transportation to protect against moisture damage, and are suitable for ocean, truck, rail, and air shipping containers. They are particularly effective in preventing tarnishing, corrosion, and other forms of damage caused by humidity.

Key applications of cargo desiccants in the jewelry and precious metals industry

Prevention of rust and corrosion

When it comes to effectively storing, packaging, and transporting jewelry items and precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, etc. it is essential to safeguard their quality as they are highly susceptible to varying weather conditions, humidity levels and contamination. Since Sorbipak container desiccants are highly absorbent materials, they can effectively absorb high levels of moisture and humidity from the surrounding air and keep it clean and dry which is suitable for storage of such items.

Preventing oxidation and tarnishing

For items that are susceptible to tarnishing, like silver and certain gold alloys, it is best to use desiccant packs to reduce the oxidation process , as this helps to preserve the look of your jewelry and prevents tarnishing. In long term storage, you need to preserve the integrity of your precious metals by reducing their exposure to excess moisture/humidity levels. Moisture can speed up the tarnishing process and tarnish your jewelry faster and damage it and make it susceptible to wear and tear. During shipping, especially in places where your cargo may be subjected to moisture or changing weather conditions, desiccation packs provide an extra layer of protection from oxidation and tarnishing.

Preserving gemstones and other accessory elements

Other sensitive components such as gemstones, precious stones, and pearls can be highly susceptible to varying weather conditions and humidity levels. During cargo and long term storage and transportation, they can undergo changes in their texture and visual appeal, and thus need to be protected throughout their shelf life. By using effective Cargo Dry Pak while packaging them, you can safeguard them from these detrimental factors throughout shipping, handling, and storage.

Cargo container protection

Since metals in particular immediately react to moisture, condensation, and humidity, it is essential to also use container desiccant strips when transporting these sensitive goods in cargo and shipping containers. Desiccant Pak add an extra layer of protection against varying weather conditions, and excess moisture levels inside the cargo storage. This is also particularly important for protecting jewelry and precious metals that are being exported to humid climates.

Make sure to use sustainable, and affordable desiccant packs to help safeguard jewelry and precious metals that can be reused multiple times, made from eco-friendly packaging such as Tyvek, etc, and can efficiently absorb large amounts of moisture and humidity from the surrounding air.
