Chemical IndustryZeolite activated granulates (e.g. Asorbio® ZAG-MFI) are used as catalysts in the chemical industry in various organic and inorganic reactions or as carriers of active components in catalytic reactions.
Gas PurificationAsorbio® ZAG molecular sieves enable adsorption, which is a highly energy-efficient gas separation process. Pressure swing adsorption (PSA) is used to produce high purity gases (O2, CO2, He, Ar, H2, etc.) with zeolites.
DesiccantsMolecular sieves or Asorbio® ZAG 4A zeolite activated granulates are hydrophilic zeolites with a high affinity for water. They are therefore used as drying agents in various fields.
Polymeric AdsorbentsThe zeolites in the polymer mixture are used as an adsorption substance in pharmaceutical and food packaging. Zeolites (e.g. Asorbio® ZAP-3A) are used to produce polymer spacers for insulated glazing.
Plastic RecyclingThe different pore sizes, hydrophilic or hydrophobic properties of the crystalline structure of Asorbio® zeolite adsorbents enable the adsorption of diverse unpleasant odour that occur in plastic waste processing and recycling.
Water treatmentThe use of zeolites in wastewater treatment is a very broad application field. Zeolites are excellent ion exchangers and are able to remove large amounts of heavy metals (Zn2+, Cu2+, Pb2+, Cd2+, Fe2+, Fe3+, etc.) from water. They are also used to stabilise the pH value.
CosmeticsZeolites are used in creams, lotions and other water-free cosmetic products as additives for creating “warming” effect. Water adsorption on Asorbio® ZAP zeolite activated powder molecules is an exothermic process during which the zeolite is warmed up and releases warmth.
Paints and coatingsThe molecular sieves of Asorbio® ZAP zeolite activated powders are a very effective additives for the removal of water molecules in the production of paints and coatings with metallic pigments.
