Simple technology that really works
Activated Charcoal is well known for absorbing odors.
Flat-D Innovations uses a proprietary activated charcoal cloth
technology for its products.
Chemical Defense Establishment as a highly efficient filter medium for
protection against nerve gas and other highly toxic vapors that might be
used in chemical warfare. This is the reason for its outstanding
advantage as a decontaminating material in commercial air and water
ACC is 100% activated charcoal produced in a flexible textile form and
absorbs more effectively than any granular form of activated charcoal
due to its micro-porous character and higher internal surface area as
compared to the granular form. Because the activated charcoal cloth
is so much more effective per unit area in removing odors than any
other known agents, the thickness of the cloth can be significantly
reduced without loosing effectiveness.
The use of special manufacturing techniques results in highly porous
charcoals that have surface areas of 300-2,000 square meters per gram.
These so-called active, or activated, charcoals are widely used to
adsorb odorous or colored substances from gases or liquids. The word
adsorb is important here.
When a material adsorbs something, it attaches to it by chemical
attraction. The huge surface area of activated charcoal gives it
countless bonding sites. When certain chemicals pass next to the
carbon surface, they attach to the surface and are trapped.
Our products do not incorporate electronics or fan motors or biological
organisms. They use a slow process of dispersion of molecules and a
sort of magnetism or attraction of odor molecules to the activated
charcoal material. In some cases it will absorb quickly and in others it
may take a few days.
