Pittsburgh-based Calgon Carbon Corp. announced Zorflex as the new brand name for the line of
activated charcoal cloth produced by its Charcoal Cloth International subsidiary. Calgon said the
name was inspired by the absorption and flexibility properties of charcoal cloths.Used in medical,
industrial, conservation and military applications, activated charcoal cloths come in a range of
contaminant- and odor-filtering products, such as nuisance vapor masks; dressings for malodorous
wounds; and nuclear, biological and chemical protection gear; among others.The company explained
that because its activated charcoal cloths are often incorporated into other finished products, the
Zorflex brand will help consumers recognize those products.
