Activated Carbon Fibers

Gas Phase Applications (Deodorization/VOC Adsorption)

Filters for gas phase applications use activated carbon fibers for air purification to enable rapid adsorption and low pressure loss. They provide excellent deodorization performance for various types of odor, including the four major sources of stench (ammonia, trimethylamine, hydrogen sulfide, and methyl mercaptan) and the smells of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from housing interior materials. Besides deodorization capability, dust removal, antibacterial, antifungal, and other features can be added by combining different functional materials. We offer a line of products that covers a wide range of areas from improving work environments to making everyday life more comfortable.

< Applications >

  • Filtering medium for filters
  • Home-use deodorant
  • Anti-odor mask

< Features >

  • Activated carbon fibers are converted into sheets using UNITIKA's unique technology.
  • Low ventilation resistance makes the material optimal for the filtering medium for various types of filters.
  • Excellent workability for cutting, punching, etc.
Pleated

< Applications >

  • Automotive filter
  • Chemical filter
  • Home-use air ventilation filter

< Features >

  • Filters made of pleated activated carbon fiber sheets
  • The filtering area per unit volume is large, resulting in higher deodorization efficiency.
Corrugated

Image : Corrugated

< Applications >

  • Chemical filter
  • Air cleaner filter
  • OA equipment filter

< Features >

  • Filters made of activated carbon fiber sheets having a honeycomb structure
  • Low pressure loss
  • Optimal for large air flow processing

Functions such as dust collection and antibacterial and antifungal properties can be added.
In addition to those mentioned above, we can create products that meet your specific needs.
