A specialty filter created for its micronAir line is featured on the new 2005 Ford Mustang. The internal cabin air filtration system, which is coupled with an electrostatic charge, helps reduce system contamination levels from the vehicle's interior, helping to protect passengers from harmful particulates.
“Ford had meticulous performance requirements for the all-new Mustang and we were able to specially design and fabricate a filter to comply with these high standards," said Leonard Freed, applications engineer for Freudenberg
Nonwovens. "Through our worldwide resources, we developed a cabin air filter that exhibits high particle removal efficiency, reduced system pressure restriction and extended service life, benefiting both the driver and the vehicle itself."
The filter cleans the air entering the passenger cabin of the vehicle through the HVAC system, reducing certain particulate contaminants that are associated with health concerns such as asthma, allergies and bronchitis. The filter also extends the life of the car's HVAC system and protects it from malfunction by reducing system wear, corrosion, fouling and clogging.
A product line of Freudenberg Nonwovens, micronAir cabin air filters reduce dust, pollutants and odors entering a vehicle's passenger compartment, enhancing the passengers' driving comfort and health. Cabin air filters by micronAir are installed on two thirds of the vehicles manufactured worldwide equipped with filter systems.
