GESSNER is thrilled to introduce our innovative filter media, a product of our patented asymmetric saturation technology. This pioneering solution marries the benefits of curing and non-curing resins in a single medium, offering unprecedented advantages to filter manufacturers.
In the materials science realm, particularly in creating filter media, curing and non-curing saturations are two distinct processes with unique benefits. Curing saturation involves impregnating a material with a curable resin, followed by exposure to heat or ultraviolet light. This triggers a chemical reaction that transforms the resin from a liquid or semi-liquid state into a solid, fully cured state, resulting in a medium with enhanced strength, rigidity, and environmental resistance - ideal for applications demanding durability and stability.
In contrast, non-curing saturation entails soaking a medium in a solution that doesn't require curing or hardening. The solution permeates the material, bolstering properties such as flexibility, absorbency, or specific element resistance, without a chemical reaction. Our asymmetrical saturation technology enables us to create a two-sided medium with distinct characteristics on each side, offering unique advantages for our products and converters.
In the automotive sector, processing filter media requires a balance between material rigidity for optimal and speedy processing, and design considerations to ensure pleat lines and dimples created during the pleating process are reliable without damaging the media. Our innovative saturation technique empowers GESSNER to deliver this robustness without compromising the medium’s pleatability.
GESSNER's asymmetric saturation technology combines the benefits of curing and non-curing resins in one medium, offering a revolutionary solution to filter manufacturers.
