Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Zeolite is a group of microporous, crystalline aluminosilicate materials, balanced with cations. Conventional zeolites are commonly used as commercial adsorbents and catalysts.
Conventional zeolites are usually in micron size. Colloidal zeolite refers to the zeolite particles which is able to uniformly and stably float in water to form suspensions. Colloidal zeolite usually has particle sizes smaller than 100 nm.
Currently, the colloidal zeolite is available for purchase on ZeoVation website. Millipore-Sigma plans to list the colloidal zeolite in Q1 2023.
Colloidal zeolites has applications in battery, energy, adsorption/separation, hydrolytic, oxidative, anticorrosive, light blocking and antimicrobial/antiviral formulations.
The zeolite additive is constituted of internal holes/cages, suitable for encapsulating cations and molecules. Functionalities can be designed either by purposely filling these holes with appropriate active molecules/ions or the empty cages can be used to remove ions/molecules from the environment. These colorless, odorless, almost invisible additives can be delivered as sprays, surface coatings and can be incorporated into polymers and textiles with different form factors.
