Powdered Activated Carbon From Wood For Purification And Decolorization

GC WDC is a chemically activated virgin powdered activated carbon. Derived from selected grades of hardwood, its high adsorptive characteristics make it suitable for many applications. Its pore structure makes it particularly effective for the purification of sugar products and the removal of color bodies. Manufactured at an NSF/ANSI standard certified facility, it is suitable for drinking water and food grade applications.
