Treated carbon is created through a proprietary process where activated carbon particles are modified to enhance adsorption of specific odor molecules.
HOW DOES TREATED CARBON WORK?
Similar to activated carbon, treated carbon works through the process of physical adsorption. When the odor molecules come into contact with the treated carbon, they are trapped within the pores until the product is reactivated. Reactivation is achieved by cycling the treated carbon fabric in a dryer where the heat from the dryer will break the bond with the odor compounds. The odor compounds are released and the treated carbon in the Scent-Lok fabric is ready for the field.
what the experts say...
“Through a propriety manufacturing process, the treated carbon’s surface properties have been greatly increased. Therefore, its capacity and kinetics to oxidized chemicals like chlorine, chloramines and hydrogen sulfide have been greatly increased compared to conventional activated carbons. Treated carbon has 3 times the adsorption capacity for hydrogen sulfide gas, compared to traditional activated carbons.”

The treated carbon in Carbon Alloy™ can adsorb up to 300% more targeted odors than untreated carbon alone, such as hydrogen sulfide, a strong breath odor.
