ZEOflair®

Speciality Zeolites

ZEOflair® zeolites are highly active adsorbents in powder form, for the removal of undesirable odours, flavours and volatile organic compounds (VOC's). Typical application areas are in thermoplastics, duroplastics, fibres, films, coatings, lacquers, inks, paints or construction materials - used as automotive parts, food (and non-food) packaging, textiles, building and construction parts and furniture. However there are more applications being added every month.

ZEOflair® can be easily incorporated as an additive in powder form or in the form of a masterbatch. The typical loading in the final product is between 0.3% and 0.8%. It does not alter physical, chemical or mechanical properties at these loadings. All grades are non-toxic and chemically inert free-flowing powders with various food contact approvals.

The wide range of ZEOflair® products offers different adsorption characteristics: from hydrophobic to hydrophilic. Both small and large molecules can be trapped due to the mixture of pore sizes in the Angstrom size range.

 

 

Features


    • Zeolites with a spectrum of hydrophilicity - hydrophobicity.

    • Grades with different pore sizes in the Angstrom range (mixed).

    • Fine particle size with d50 < 7 microns.

    • White, free-flowing, powder.

    • Loss on ignition < 8 wt%.

Benefits


    • High internal pore capacity ensures low loadings with high absorption.

    • Low impact on mechcanical properties of polymer due to low dose rates.

    • Efficiently trap a wide variety of odours and VOC's thanks to the different surface polarities and pore sizes.

    • Adsorbates remain trapped in the zeolite unless heated to above 250°C.

    • High thermal stability > 800°C. Can improve heat aging of polymers and fire resistance.

    • Food contact approvals. Chemically inert.

Typical Applications


    • Low VOC paints and coatings.

    • Low VOC polymer parts for interior automotive (VDA 278).

    • Odour trapping in fabric coatings, polymer films, blow moulded polymers etc.

    • Improving polymer stability at elevated termperatures e.g. high temperature rubbers.

    • Masterbatch for trapping malodorous contaminants from pigments.

    • Active air purification filter media.

    • PVC and polymeric flooring.

Featured grades with technical datasheets

A brief overview of the key grades is given below. You will find the Technical Datasheets (TDS) available for download. If you are looking for a Safety Datasheet (SDS) or Product Safety Information (PSI) then please get in touch by phone or via the contact buttons at the top of the page.

ZEOflair® for Coatings

ZEOflair® can be incorporated into coatings to provide both an active and passive absorption of VOC's that contribute to poor indoor air quality (IAQ). This presentation outline the problems and challenges of addressing IAQ, an overview of the ZEOflair® products and range, followed by a look at some case studies and real life data.
