BASF products help make air filters heat-resistant and feature a good relation of stiffness and toughness. They can be fitted precisely and sealed in place both perfectly and reliably so they can easily fulfill their crucial role in a vehicle’s design.

The plastic Elastofoam® I material can be used for radial air filters with its foamed edge to secure filters properly in place. Air filter housings made with Ultramid® are heat resistant and remain rigid in high-temperature environments. Ultramid® housings can easily withstand temperatures of up to 120°C in the engine compartment.
