A zwitterion (also known as an “inner salt”) is a molecule that has both a positively and a negatively charged group in close proximity. These charges pull water to the zwitterion while repelling organic components (like proteins, fats and oils) that stick to traditional membranes and impede their filtration capacity.
By linking these zwitterions together with a strong backbone, we create extremely hydrophilic (“water-loving”) membranes that prevent organic components from adhering to their surface or clogging their pores.
The result is reliable, lasting filtration.
