Are the desiccants DIN 55473 and/or MIL-D-3464 compliant?

The industrial standard DIN 55473 and MIL-D-3464 provides criteria for the evaluation of the efficiency of desiccant bags and states that the desiccants shall not be deliquesced to liquid. The standard also defines what a “desiccant unit” is for a desiccant based on the amount of water it can adsorb.

SUPER DRY desiccants are made of calcium chloride and reduce the moisture available in the environment via absorption. SUPER DRY desiccants are not adsorptive desiccants and therefore, the standards DIN 55473 and MIL-D-3464 do not apply.
