NEW versatile moisture adsorbing polymers protect tiny and complex spaces from humidity within optics and electronic equipment
VMAP is a blend of desiccant crystals suspended in a polymer which is capable of adsorbing moisture, odors and organic volatiles in sensitive electro-optical equipment.
Many electro-optical applications requiring protection from humidity use desiccant bags or dry gas purging to protect the air space within an enclosure. The downside to these solutions is that applications are becoming smaller each day and these solutions are becoming less feasible.
VMAP is ideal for applications with complex shapes and limited space as it can be molded into any shape or size. VMAP provides a rigid structure which can be readily fixed in place using fasteners, adhesives or other mechanical retention methods. The ability to mold and machine the material allows for low cost prototypes to be quickly produced.
