The PET-1 guitar humidifier has been designed with a unique expandable shell, responsibly made from the most widely recycled plastic in the world. Inside is a super absorbent polymer core that can hold more than 30 times its weight in water. When hydrated, the PET-1’s enlarged surface area provides exceptional humidification, while remaining completely dry to the touch.

The PET-1, although simple in its design uses high technology materials and as such should not be used in the same way as other instrument humidifiers on the market.
The polymer core consists of a set of polymeric chains that are parallel to each other and regularly linked to each other by cross-linking agents, thus forming a network. When water comes into contact with one of these chains, it is drawn into the molecule by osmosis.
Water rapidly migrates into the interior of the polymer network where it is stored as a solid.
This is why you need to rest the PET-1 after soaking in water, to allow the water molecules time to lock together with the polymer creating a solid that will not harm your guitar.
