Aqua-Bind® FLUORIDE
Product Data Sheet

FLUORIDE REMOVAL MEDIA

Aqua-Bind® FLUORIDE is an effective chemical adsorption media designed specifically for fluoride removal from water and wastewater. Apyron's Aqua-Bind FLUORIDE is a hybrid metal oxide produced with Apyron's patented technology resulting in a material with superior performance and capacity over conventional ion exchange and activated alumina products. It exhibits selectivity in the presence of competing ions with good kinetics over a broad operating range. Applications include a wide array of industrial, municipal, environmental, and consumer applications (POE / POU) for potable and non-potable water. Aqua-Bind FLUORIDE can be utilized or retrofitted easily into conventional water treatment equipment or vessels. Regeneration options are available based on the application. The material has been certified for use in drinking water applications under NSF Standard 61.
