GC 4x8SA

Premium Coconut Shell Granular Activated Carbon

GC 4x8SA granular activated carbon is ideal for most air purification purposes. Made from selected grades of coconut shell, its superior level of hardness makes it cleaner than most other carbons and gives it longer life expectancy. This, combined with its high activity level, makes it well suited for use in any kind of carbon filter or system.
