The coating acts as a protective agent for the impregnated substance. The Katalox-Light granules have an angular shape, rough high micro-porous surface to filter water down to 2-3 microns. The rough surface and very high porosity provide a huge surface area for efficient reduction of dirt, silt and suspended solids.
