Acteev Protect™ nonwoven fabric for air filtration
Breakthrough filtration with built in antimicrobial protection
Acteev protect filtration media contain a powerful antimicrobial technology that protects filters from the growth of bacteria and mold fungi that can cause odor, discoloration and deterioration.* The embedded technology provides long-lasting protection to any filter construction. Acteev Protect nonwovens also feature all the benefits of polyamide, or nylon. Nonwovens made with nylon 6,6 are durable and light weight.
Meltblown nanofiber nonwoven
Unique polyamide nanofibers with diameters between 400nm and 600nm are 100 times smaller than the size of human hair. In addition to best-in-class antimicrobial protection, the Acteev Protect nonwoven membrane provides better filtration efficiency with lower pressure drop than traditional polypropylene meltblown nonwovens.
Meltblown microfiber nonwoven
The world’s first polyamide microfiber meltblown nonwoven with fiber diameters between 2µ and 8µ, providing the best-in-class microbial protection with Acteev Protect. Also provides excellent filtration coupled with deep dust-holding capacity to remove unwanted microbes and particles.
This Acteev spunbond layer provides additional strength to protect the inner filtration layers in the filter construction. Also provides best-in-class antimicrobial protection with fiber diameters in the 23µ range.
How Acteev works: technology and efficacy
Acteev™ technology uses active zinc ions embedded within the polymer structure to deliver protection against viruses, bacteria and fungi. Ascend has partnered with world-renowned scientists and laboratories to analyze this cutting-edge technology.
*Acteev Protect does not protect users or others against disease-causing bacteria. These claims fall under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's treated article exemption. Regulations in other countries may differ.
