We all use filters. Whether it’s a water, furnace, refrigerator, oven, automotive or microwave filter, they are the key component to keeping our air and water clean and fresh. More and more, state governments are increasing regulations on water and air quality in an attempt to keep citizens safe. This increased awareness has led manufacturers to create new and improved ways to produce filters. In particular, Bayer MaterialScience has partnered with BayOne Urethane Systems LLC to introduce innovative ways to produce the best in filtration materials. As website azom.com reports, “Bayer has strengthened its technical leadership role in the filtration market by expanding its reach and leveraging a global materials supply chain to benefit customers.”
The polyurethane that Bayer manufactures can be used in either rigid or flexible functions, which is ideal for various filtration needs. For example, the Filbur FC-2370 Rainbow Dynamic pool filter uses thermally bonded polyurethane to ensure durability and consistent water flow. Many additional pool and spa filters use polyurethane technology to ensure a high quality, durable product. Unlike other materials, polyurethane is lightweight, faster to manufacture, and uses much less environment harming resources than other materials . So, kudos to Bayer MaterialScience for working to create earth friendly materials for use in filter media.
