Read Artosoft's comments that blue silica gel contains cobalt chloride which is carcinogenic so was wondering where to buy those orange/white/transparent ones?

anyone got any ideas? thanks!

You can search in Google with these keywords: orange silica gel

Don't think can find in SG yet.. SG not so fast on the RoHS.
I know. I google it before ;) .

But, what we want to know: is it available in Singapore yet or not?

Arto.

Dunno leh.. Singapore doesn't really seem to care about whether it's hazardous or not. As long as it doesn't affect export can liao.. EU is quite proactive against hazardous materials, even lead, cadmium and chromium cannot be present in electronics in the RoHS guidelines.
