PLYMOUTH, MI--Sept. 16, 2013: Freudenberg's micronAir cabin air filters ensure that the vehicle cabin air is free of pollutants, irritants, and odors. micronAir filters trap a broad range of microscopic particles, harmful gases and unpleasant odors to help make the driving experience healthier and more pleasant. These filters also protect the vehicle air-conditioning system, extending its life and reducing the need for service. They also have a significant safety effect - they prevent windshield fogging.

"By the end of 2013, the installation rate for cabin air filters will approach 85%, nearly doubling the rate in 2009. That speaks volumes for the acceptance of this technology by consumers," says Darren King, sales manager, automotive filtration.

Concern for clean air is a growing trend. We all want to breathe clean air; at work, at home…and inside our vehicles. Americans spend hundreds of hours behind the wheel every year and studies show that contaminants inside a car can be up to ten times more concentrated than outside.

New government regulations, both in the U.S. and internationally, create new and increased demand for products that limit emissions as well as an increased demand for products that protect people from the effect of emissions. "Freudenberg Filtration Technologies participates in the development of these specifications and ultimately accepts the challenge to develop new solutions for mass production to meet them," adds King.

As part of a global entity comprising 35 locations and 16 production sites, Freudenberg Filtration Technologies in North America is a proven leader in Cabin Air Filtration under the trusted brand of micronAir. micronAir cabin air filters are made of high-quality micro-fibers that protect drivers and passengers from pollen, dust, soot and other harmful particles, odors and gases. They also provide relief to allergy sufferers by filtering out contaminants which can trigger hay fever and other allergy problems. In many or most vehicles, installation of a cabin air filter takes just a few minutes and requires no tools.
