The American Filtration & Separations Society has awarded Ahlstrom-Munksjö Extia with the New Product Award in its Annual Awards Luncheon at FiltCon 2019, which took place in Cherry Hill, NJ, this week.

“I am very proud of our South Korean R&D team which developed this great new product. Extia is an excellent example of how Ahlstrom-Munksjö can leverage on its global scale in developing and manufacturing high-performance filtration products,” commented Fulvio Capussotti, EVP Filtration and Performance. “Extia is targeted for industrial filtration customers and we will continue to strengthen our product offering for our customers in this field.”

It is specifically designed for industrial filtration markets. Extia is a 100% synthetic, highly durable, pulse cleanable filter media, designed to last longer in all operating conditions.
