Superior Felt & Filtration manufactures and supplies a wide array of synthetic nonwoven textiles which are used in many personal protection devices. Aramid and other synthetic needle punch fibers are utilized in the lining of fire protection garments. Electrostatically charged synthetic needle punch fibers and melt blown fibers are used in conjunction to offer some of the highest levels of filtration for health care providers and emergency responder respirators and masks.
Technostat®, which is an electrostatic filter media, is ideally suited for use in a number of respiratory applications since its low air flow resistance equates to a more breathable mask or device, resulting in reduced fatigue and higher comfort levels. In addition, Technostat® can be combined through the use of breathable laminates to activated carbon and other materials for combined dust and gas filtration.
Building upon this highly efficient media structure, we now offer Technostat® Plus. Technostat® Plus is a surface charged tribo-electret needle-punched felt that offers 20% gains in efficiency over our standard electrostatic media. The material obtains its tribo-electret properties when the two dissimilar fibers used during the manufacturing process create a charge that enhances filtration capabilities.
Our experts can help your company pass some of the most stringent international respirator standards. From NIOSH to the European EN143 and EN149 standards, we can provide media solutions that will perform above and beyond the requirements.
