The aim of Matala is to produce innovative filtration materials for application in biological treatment of wastewater, Aquaculture recirculation and Koi & water garden and various other applications.
With Matala's extensive background in Aquaculture Engineering and with a team holding two generations of experience in plastic manufacturing and R&D, efforts were focused to create and produce Matala® filter media that offer superior technical characteristics compared to other alternative types of media existing in the market.
Introducing Matala®, the advanced filter media for today's serious pond enthusiast. One look at Matala® will convince you of its practical and versatile qualities.
The open, highly aerobic 3 dimensional structure promotes healthy water conditions and ease of cleaning in most non-pressurized filter designs. Matala® is a filter media that is simple and that works.
The various densities can be used in sequence or separately for unique filtration requirements. This is one of the greatest characteristics which Matala has to offer. No other media on the market can perform this step-wise filtration. Matala effectively separates large particles to small and still maintains a very aerobic and free flow of water without channeling.
Matala is slightly buoyant and will not sink to the bottom of your filter. Matala stood vertically on end will not float. Matala stacked horizontally will hold each other down.
Due to it's rigidity the Matala can be wedged in place in the filter without support.
One sheet of Matala has the following characteristics:
Approximately 48" x 39" x 1.5" (120cm x 100cm x 4cm) for all densities; Black, Green, Blue and Gray. Weight per sheet is between 6 to 8 pounds depending on density. One sheet is 13 sq.ft. 8 sq.ft. equals 1 cubic ft of media. One full sheet equals 1.6 cubic feet or 12 gallon volume. Semi-rigid and self-supporting Specific gravity: 0.95. Slightly buoyant. Made of Thermopoly Propylene compound - Nontoxic to environment. Matala Progressive Sheets are available in both full sheets (48" x 39") and half sheets (24" x 39").
