Answer:

Because the particle size of the colloid is LESS than the pore size of the frit/filter......

Explanation:

The typical size of a colloidal particle is approx. #1xx10^-9*m# to #1xx10^-6*m#. A typical frit porosity is approx. #5xx10^-6*m#. The attempt to filter a colloid thru such a frit would thus be unsuccessful.
