MANCHESTER, CT - February 12, 2008 - Lydall, Inc. (NYSE: LDL) - Lydall Filtration introduces LyPore® Defender liquid filter media.
LyPore® Defender is Lydall Filtration's newest liquid media series. Extensive R&D coupled with industry leading expertise in wet-laid microglass media results in a series of products that push the boundaries of dirt holding, particle removal, and flow.
Lydall's unique formulations are optimized for each grade to provide ultimate performance in a pleated configuration. LyPore® Defender can be used in virtually any industrial liquid application that requires high performance and long life.
These grades are optimal when co-pleated with multiple support layers and can be used as the sole efficiency and dirt holding layer or in conjunction with a separate pre-filter. The LyPore® Defender series is available in 3, 6, 10 and 20 micron efficiencies with standard acrylic latex binder or optional epoxy binder for more demanding fluid and temperature requirements.
Stu Krupnick, Market Manager for Lydall Filtration noted, "We are excited about the performance of this new product and it shows Lydall's continued investment in R&D to advance the performance capabilities of microglass and the art of filtration in fluid power and automotive applications."
