DelStar develops sustainable meltblown filter media

Designed specifically for the air filtration industry, the new DelPore® product from DelStar Technologies is manufactured from PLA (polylactide acid) and is electrostatically charged to enhance its efficiency.

DelStar Technologies adds that it developed the new DelPore media for short-term disposable air filtration applications, including medical facemasks, respirators, vacuum bags, and furnace filters. Although more expensive than traditional polypropylene media, the charged PLA media offers value to manufacturers concerned with sustainability, zero-toxicity, and low-energy initiatives. DelStar is currently offering both charged and uncharged versions of the new media in various weights.
