Sauget, IL, December 12, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Universal Air Filter® has created the thinnest media available that meets the UL 94 HF-1 rating. This new 0.12-inch-thick Quadrafoam is ideal for medical, power-gen, military electronics, telecom and any other filter applications where space is at a premium, yet flame safety, dust arrestance and sufficient airflow is critical.
“Until now, design engineers for all product markets couldn’t find a 0.12-inch-thick media that also met the UL 94 HF-1 requirement,” said Mike Miano, engineering and sales manager at UAF. “This is beneficial for any industry requiring UL classification and CE compliance.”
Thin Quadrafoam media is soft and compressible and available in 45, 60 and 80 pores-per-inch (PPI). In addition to filtration applications, it can also be bonded to interior chassis walls for insulation or circuit card stabilization purposes
