Hydrophobic Glass Fiber Media

Hydrophobic glass fiber media comprised of a strong cellulose web with a glass fiber matrix, a high performance binder, and a hydrophobic/oleophobic fluorochemical formulation treatment. Hydrophobic glass fiber media is a barrier to airborne microbial contaminants, and its surface is modified so that the medium may be used in vent applications exposed to extremely viscous solutions.
