BMC High Performance air filters are designed to replace OEM filters, guaranteeing greater air capacity than traditional paper ones while filtering 98.5% of particles as small as 7 microns (vs 10 micros of most oem products). BMC filters are manufactured in a single piece to ensure durability and use aluminium net treated with epoxy resin to guarantee resistance to fuel vapors and oxidizing due to humidity. The filtering material is special cotton soaked in low viscosity oil to guarantee greater permeability to air.
BMC air filters are designed and produced to ensure a higher air flow than original paper filters. In F1, for example, BMC cotton filters minimize the loss of air flow pressure passing through the air filter; this ensures the best conditions for maximum power. The benefits of replacing the original paper filter with a BMC cotton air filter, produced using the same technology and materials as the F1 air filters, are evident.
Design and Materials
Qualified engineers using advanced software and expert technicians using the latest technologies produce BMC air filters. An F1 filter must be very light, must be made of the best raw materials and must improve performance. For this reason we use only alloy mesh with epoxy coating to ensure protection from gasoline fumes and from oxidization due to airborne humidity. Our filtering material is composed of a special cotton gauze soaked with low-viscosity oil to give you the best air permeability.
BMC technical staff has developed a production system based on soft rubber moulding which produces the familiar BMC red filters. They are made in one single piece with no welded joints in the corners, thus avoiding breaking risks. This system, called "Full Moulding", comes from our R&D in F1 and it contributes to BMC air filters' technical and quality superiority.
