The cabin air filters range offered by the UFI Group has grown significantly over the past three years. And now, 135 new products have been launched for UFI Filters and Sofima, covering now 98.5 per cent of European vehicles in circulation.
The range now features 442 cabin products, 276 of which are anti-pollen filters and 166 are filters made of a filtering non-woven fabric.
The anti-pollen filters are produced with a synthetic non-woven fabric that can hold back over 90 per cent of particles with a diameter greater than 2.5 μm, such as dirt and pollen.
The filters made of a filtering non-woven fabric are combined with active carbon, which also absorbs gases and odours, further protecting the vehicle’s interior.
The concentration of dust in the atmosphere and the presence of various harmful particles such as PM10 and PM2.5 varies with weather conditions and geographic location. Levels inside the vehicle can be as high as six times the outdoor level due to the tunnel effect created by the ventilation circuit. The direct effects of poor air quality when driving include allergies, sore throat, sneezing, reduced driver alertness and even poor visibility due to condensation on the windscreen and windows.
In order to guarantee ultimate protection against harmful particles and boost the efficiency of the air conditioning system, the UFI Filters Group recommends replacing the air cabin filter regularly: every 15,000 km – even at shorter intervals in particularly dusty areas – or at the latest every six to 12 months. This operation is crucial for guaranteeing health and comfort inside the vehicle.
