Kuraray began production of activated carbon fiber (ACF) in 1980, and commercialized electric double layer capacitors that use ACF fabrics in the 1980s. Since then, we have commercialized fine powder activated carbon (YP, etc.) in response to the diversification of needs for electric double layer capacitors. In addition, we supply products to meet various other needs, including products for electrodes, water purification and deodorization.
Electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC)
Soluble lead removal, free chlorine removal, trihalomethane removal, mold odor removal, malodorous substance removal
Electrodes, solvent recovery materials,
odor removal filters, clean water filters
Water purifiers, freshness-retaining materials, deodorizing materials, ammonia removal, trimethylamine removal, formaldehyde removal, acetaldehyde removal
Pores are highly controlled according to application.
Various forms are available from granularity to micrometer-scale powders.
Broad adsorption performance due to approproate activated carbon composition.
Excellent characteristics and long life at high flow rate.
Appropriate as a preprocessing filter dur to minimal fine particle generation.
Pore size can be adjusted for a wide range of adsorptivity conditions.
Ideal permeability and good particulate removal.
Superb adsorption speed.
Impregrated activated carbon has unique functions due to particular chemical treatment.
