November 24, 2020, Petaling Jaya – Bosch Automotive Aftermarket (AA) Malaysia has launched the Aeristo Premium cabin filter range for passenger cars.
The introduction was done at a session joined by Dr Rajveer Singh Saren, ENT Specialist and Reuben Chew, Product Manager of Bosch AA Malaysia.
A car’s cabin filter is often mistaken for the engine air filter. What the cabin filter does is to filter the air from outside the vehicle into the cabin through the air conditioning system. While typical cabin filters does the job of filtering out impurities like dust, dirt, smoke, mold spores and pet hair, Bosch’s Aeristo Premium is designed with features that include anti-bacteria and anti-virus properties that can help minimise exposure risks to airborne pollutants, bacteria and viruses.
Aeristo Premium has a natural polyphenol layer made out of plants that has the ability to restrain viruses by decomposing the virus protein and an anti-bacteria agent that prevents the growth of bacteria. On top of that, it is woven and layered with an electrostatic charged material that removes fine particles and air pollutants as small as 2.5 microns.
Essentially, this cabin filter has a filtration efficiency of a PM2.5 filter. It is able to filter 98 per cent of fine air particles at 2.5 microns. To give a point of comparison, a strand of human hair is 50-70 microns in diameter which means the cabin filter filters out air pollutants that are naked to the eye.
Bosch AA said that as a bonus, Aeristo Premium also comes with an activated carbon layer that absorbs and neutralizes unpleasant smells and harmful gases such as smog, car exhaust or the ozone. The activated carbon is made from coconut shell that has higher filtration and absorption capacity than those made from wood or coal.
On top of that, it also has an anti-allergy layer that has anti-fungus properties to filter common allergens in the air as well as prevent fungal and mold growth on the cabin filter.
