WHAT MAKES BOVEDA THE ONLY PRECISION HUMIDITY CONTROL?
Two-way Humidity Control means the same thing to us today as it did when we patented the packaged version 20 years ago: The ability to add and/or remove moisture and still maintain a specific Relative Humidity (RH). It means acting on the environment instead of being at the mercy of it. It means specificity, reliability and predictability.
But recently the term 2-way humidity “control” (or regulate) has been dumbed down to include the crude releasing or absorbing of moisture, whether the contents of your container needs it or not.
Think of your remote control. Would you be happy to punch in “62” and the TV goes to 80? No, you’d chuck the remote out a window with no concern whether it was open. If you set your thermostat to 68 in the summer but the furnace fires up, you’d make a thermostat-sized hole in your wall. And if you set your cruise control to 65 but you end up getting a ticket going 90, you’ll be cursing your car when you write out that fat citation check. All those examples are analogs to what you get from non-Boveda 2-way humidity “control”.
What’s the not-secret ingredient only Boveda has patented to provide precision humidity control?
Salt. Science has known for 100’s of years that a saturated salt solution is the only way to provide the capacity to add and/or remove moisture and still maintain the specific intended RH. Boveda patented the packaged version of that science. Without salt, any humidity “control” only has a starting RH that changes wildly as soon as it gives up or absorbs water. That’s not specific, reliable or predictable.
NO SALT = NO PRECISION HUMIDITY CONTROL.
Boveda’s natural, food-grade salts are the brains that know when to absorb and when to release purified water vapor. It’s why you’ll only find Boveda in the cigar boxes of leading cigar makers and the packaging of the biggest cannabis brands. Boveda means precision.
Minneapolis, MN – July 14, 2016 – Boveda Inc., the global leader in 2-way humidity control, and XIKAR, Inc., a leading cigar accessory brand, today announced a long-term agreement pursuant to which Boveda will supply XIKAR with private label custom printed patented 2-way humidity control products for use in the premium cigar market.
The agreement is part of Boveda’s new initiative to expand the availability of its patented 2-way humidity control technology by providing Xikar with custom printed Boveda packets. Boveda will continue to manufacture and distribute its own branded products to the cigar industry.
Boveda’s innovative technology and manufacturing expertise expands XIKAR’s current line of full-service cigar accessories. XIKAR will provide retailers with inventory management and merchandising services, as well as education and training on the 2-way humidity control products.
Tim Swail, Boveda’s Executive Vice President, stated “We believe retailers and consumers will benefit significantly from this new supply agreement, and it adds an exciting new product line to Xikar’s already formidable accessories lineup.” According to XIKAR President Kurt Van Keppel, “Our agreement with Boveda is a natural step in our pursuit to be the turn-key supplier of all cigar accessories, to all cigar retailers.”
