jlocke8 commented on Desiccant embedded PPE suit to keep PPE dry and bearable

Hi I heard calcium chloride does give off energy when absorbing water but does silica gel really do that too? I wasn't sure that silica gel gives off heat when it absorbs can you point me to some more info about this? Thanks

I love it! I'm happy to hear your tech is already being deployed. I hope it can be widespread to supply US responders as well.

Yup, I think if we can use an off the shelf technology/product, it would be much easier to implement as opposed to reinventing wheels. It will come down to effectiveness of solution, cost to make/develop, ability to widely distribute.
