Since the advent of the dual-lite insulating glass (IG) industry, one of the cornerstones of a well-made IG unit has been the desiccant system. The main role of a desiccant is to remove all traces of moisture and chemical vapors that may be present during the construction of the window unit. The second task is to maintain a low dew point over the warranted life of the unit and beyond. If a desiccant system meets both these criteria, a well-constructed window should provide many years of trouble-free performance even in the harshest of climates.

As IG construction methods advanced, the demands on the desiccant system grew more complex. The ability to remove larger organic molecules that may outgas from sealant systems, paints and muntins between the lites became necessary to prevent formation of a chemical fog. This fog became easier to detect as construction with low-E glass grew.
