Oil and water repellent treatments for filter media have been available for many years, and their adhesive properties are well known. There are however many occasions when these standard treatments are not effective enough and some highly sticky dusts cannot be cleaned off the surface.
In such applications there is a requirement for a more specialised treatment. Lydall Gutsche offers such treatments: antafin®, a highly effective, anti-adhesive treatment for greasy and oily dusts. antafin® is resistance to acids, hydrolysis and other chemicals while at the same time improving the cleaning performance.
