Sofnolime is shipped in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) reclosable containers.
It has a limited shelf life, so each container is marked with an expiration date. Always follow your rebreather manufacturer’s recommendations for scrubber change intervals.

The use of improper absorbent can cause excessive work of breathing and shortened scrubber times.
