Kimberly-Clark's synthetic HVAC filtration media is designed for MERV 11-15 filters
Kimberly-Clark unveils a line of high-efficiency filtration media for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system air filters. Based on the company’s bi-component, nonwoven technology, the media is designed for a range of HVAC filter styles delivering MERV 11-15 performance.
The Kimberly-Clark Filter Media delivers both initial and sustained particle capture efficiencies, helping to deliver improved indoor air quality (IAQ) and keeping HVAC components clean. It also maintains a low airflow resistance, which reduces energy costs, as the HVAC system does not need to run as hard to deliver the required amount of air to the building.
The 100% synthetic media is thermally bonded to prevent fiber shedding during manufacture or in use. The media features a mix of fiber diameters in a gradient density structure, with more loosely packed fibers on the upstream side and more densely packed fibers on the downstream side, to aid in particle capture efficiency and prevent face-loading of the filter. The composite structure is highly durable and tear-resistant, making it less susceptible to damage during converting, transportation and installation.
The media’s fibers are made from chemically inert polymers, making it safe to handle. In addition, the fibers are hydrophobic, preventing moisture absorption and resisting microbial growth.
The media can be thermally, adhesively, ultrasonically or stitch bonded, providing a range of converting options. It is also pleatable with pre/post heat.
