Abstract

For many devices, such as computers, it is often desirable to filter the air flowing through them, in order to remove trace chemical contamination. Carbon has been used in such filters, but carbon often presents a problem due to dusting. This problem is overcome by using carbon bonded together by traces of non- volatile thermoplastic.
