What is Zorflex®?
Zorflex® activated carbon cloth adsorbs a large volume of organic or inorganic molecules from various gases and liquids and acts as a high purity filter, a method of separation or as a protective layer.
As Zorflex® is 100% activated carbon, it is more effective at adsorption compared to other carbon loaded materials which have a lower activated carbon content.
Activated carbons generally have a vast network of pores of varying sizes. Zorflex® activated carbon cloth has a microporous structure which results in rapid adsorption kinetics and the capability to adsorb to a higher level of purity. Zorflex®, unlike granular activated carbons, is also suitable for use in applications where there is a high humidity as its adsorption capacity is less adversely affected by moisture.
Zorflex® can also be custom-manufactured to comprise a mesoporous structure to adsorb larger molecules if required.
Due to its microporous structure, Zorflex® activated carbon cloth has an extremely large surface area. To put its capabilities into perspective, just 1g of Zorflex® activated carbon cloth has the surface area of over half the size of a football pitch . This, combined with the strong electrostatic forces within the cloth, enables the cloth to be highly efficient at adsorbing both liquids and gases.
