Chemco Manufacturing has introduced a powder cartridge that is 100%
efficient for particles 1 micron and above, the company reports. The
Perma-Clean cartridge uses patented Gore-Tex(R) powder technology.

results in very low resistance (anti-static) and optimum powder
release properties. In addition, according to the company, the slick,
microporous surface of the cartridge provides exceptionally high
performance efficiencies. The Perma-Clean differs substantially from
cellulose and polyester filter medias in that it produces minimal
powder retention. Its non-linting media reclaims powder that is
uncontaminated and eliminates the need for seasoning or
