UFI Filters strengthens cabin filter range

UFI Filters offers a completed range of cabin air filters, whose main function is to protect against dust, soot, bacteria, pollen and other pollutants that may enter the vehicle interior.

The entry of these pollutants can, in extreme cases, turn the entire passenger compartment into a comfortable breeding ground for pathogens. This is why it is essential to choose a quality cabin filter and replace it on a regular basis.

Thanks to its experience in research and development of new materials, UFI Filters has developed different types of FormulaUFI.Stratiflex filter media for cabin filters, which it claims guarantee high filtering efficiency, resistance to moisture and microbiological neutralisation.

UFI Group offers three types of cabin air filters in its aftermarket catalogue: from the traditional pollen filter to the activated carbon filter, which is also capable of blocking unpleasant odours, to the antibacterial filter of the UFI Filters Argentium range.

The UFI Filters catalogue now offers over 700 references of cabin filters, 607 for cars and commercial vehicles and 111 for on-road and off-road trucks, covering over 19,000 applications.

This range has grown significantly over the recent years, ensuring that more than 98.5 per cent of all vehicles on Europe’s roads are covered by UFI Filters.

There are 363 pollen filters made with synthetic non-woven filter media, capable of retaining over 90 per cent of particles with a diameter greater than 2.5 μm, such as PM10 fine dust, dirt and pollen. UFI pollen filters can be identified in the catalogue by the initial code 53.

196 carbon filters, on the other hand, are the references consisting of non-woven filter material combined with activated carbon, which also absorbs gases and odours, and blocks industrial and agricultural pollutants such as hazardous NOX, SO2, NH3 and VOC.

UFI says its carbon filters ensure greater protection inside the vehicle and can be identified in the catalogue by the initial code 54.

UFI Filters’ 159 UFI Argentium filters are equipped with antibacterial properties. The filter media consists of three layers: structural, absorbent and antimicrobial, incorporating silver particles.

Biomaster biocide silver, tested to ISO 22196:2011, can inhibit bacterial growth by up to 99 per cent. Argentium UFI filters can be identified in the catalogue by the initial code 34.
