fibrous activated carbon
An activated carbon in the form of fibres, filaments, yarns or rovings and fabrics or felts. Such fibres differ from carbon fibres used for reinforcement purposes in composites by their high surface area, high porosity and low mechanical strength.
Sometimes fabrics of fibrous @A00090@ are named @C00986@ cloths; a more precise term is '@A00090@ cloth'.
