Fine powder activated carbon KURARAY COAL™(PGW・YP)

Activated carbon, in which the pores and particle size are highly controlled using technologies developed as a general manufacturer of activated carbon, is supplied.

Electric double-layer capacitor electrode materials (YP) have excellent characteristics, such as high performance, high reliability, and stable quality, with high activated carbon manufacturing technology and fine micrometer-scale grinding process technology, to contribute to increase the market.

Fine activated carbon for water purifiers (PGW) has less impurities and has earned NSF and WQA certification in the USA.

Antibiotic action and catalytic performance can also be added.

Characteristics

  • Pores are controlled according to application.
  • Various size of pores can be controlled from granularity to micrometer-scale powders.

Application

  • Electrode material
  • Materials for water purification
  • Various types of gas adsorption
  • Catalyst carrier

Wet molding carbon filter

These are clean water filters. They were made by molding and combining fibrous activated carbon and antibacterial activated carbon – the former is excellent at removing free chlorine, soluble lead, trihalomethane and mold odor.

Characteristics

  • By using two types of activated carbon (fiber and granular), a wide range of adsorption characteristics can be achieved.
  • Excellent characteristics and long life at high flow rate.
  • Very little fine particle generation and appropriate for a preprocessing filters.

Application

  • Drinking water treatment
  • Water purifier
  • Pure water treatment
  • Chemical, plating liquid
  • Medical water

Activated carbon fiber

Kuraray's activated carbon fiber is a high-quality, very pure, fibrous activated carbon. Its adsorption performance is so fantastic that it can be processed with very high precision – a great feature that it is difficult or impossible for conventional activated carbon to achieve. It is available in four basis types of material – fiber, felt, cloth and paper. This allows you to select the most suitable form and performance for your application.

Characteristics

  • Pore size can be adjusted for a wide range of adsorptivity.
  • Ideal permeability and good particulate removal.
  • Superb adsorption speed.

Application

  • Electrodes
  • Solvent recovery materials
  • Odor removal filter
  • Clean water filters
  • Sanitary materials

Activated carbon sheet

Kuraray's activated carbon sheet is a sheet type adsorbent made by impregnating urethane form or non-woven fabric with activated carbon that has excellent adsorptivity. It is lightweight, dust free and has a high adsorption speed. It also has a wide range of applications because it is an easy-to-process and handle material.

Characteristics

  • Amount of impregnation with activated carbon can be adjusted.
  • Ideal permeability and good particulate removal.

Application

  • Masks
  • Deodorizing sheets
  • Medical sheets
  • Sanitary pad
  • Vegetables freshness enhancer
  • Water purification
  • Air cleaning filter
  • Automotive air filter
