A filter medium that incorporates patented asymmetric saturation technology and combines the benefits of curing and non-curing resins for filter manufacturers has been developed by Neenah Filtration.
The two-sided medium provides different characteristics that unlock advantages for the company’s products and converters in a brand-new way.
When processing filter media in the automotive sector it is important to ensure some rigidity of the material for optimum processing speed. The material should also be designed so that pleat lines and dimples created during the pleating process do not damage the medium. Neenah Filtration’s saturation technique gives the company the ability to provide this robustness without jeopardizing the medium’s pleatability.
Another key function of this asymmetric saturation, or ability to combine different resin systems on a single medium, is that it enables media to be tailor-made to meet individual customer’s needs.
