Abstract: Electrophoretic deposition (EPD) and infiltration (EPI) behavior of a natural zeolite (clinoptilolite, produced in Akita prefecture, Japan) particles on/into a steel and a porous glass substrates were investigated for the purpose of the environmental purification. The obtained deposit of the zeolite prepared by the EPD was less durable against peeling off compared with the EPI process, but it was improved by use of silica sol particles as a binder. Ion uptake efficiency of the EPD sample was superior to that o…
