Officially launched at Automechanika Frankfurt 2012, Valeo ClimFilterâ¢ Supreme was commercialized in April 2013, awarded âInnovative Development of the Yearâ in August 2013 at MIMS in Russia and presented by Valeo as innovation at IAA Frankfurt in September 2013.
ClimFilterâ¢ Supreme is the first cabin air filter in Europe aiming at protecting drivers and passengers against particles, harmful gases, unpleasant odours and the entrance of the airborne allergens in the cabin. The air inside the cabin may be five times more polluted than outside and the constant exposure to allergens may provoke an allergy at any age.
As the Air Quality multi-specialist, Valeo developed an exclusive 92% proven efficiency cabin air filter against strongest airborne allergens in Europe.
ClimFilterâ¢ Supreme is based on combined technology with active carbon and integrates the additive polyphenol coating that neutralises allergens.
Polyphenols are the natural compounds widely found in the plants, fruits and vegetables known for their health benefits (antioxidant). The microscopic allergens present in the air are captured by the filter. The first surface of Valeo ClimFilterâ¢ Supreme with active polyphenol binds and neutralizes them immediately.
The symptoms of inhalation allergies - sneezing, itching, watery eyes, runny noses, difficulty in breathing, but also tiredness, irritability and headache - are not only a source of discomfort but they may also deteriorate considerably driverâs concentration. For example, when sneezing at 80km/h driving speed, a driver will cover a 25 meters distance with eyes closed. According to figures published by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, the probability for people suffering from allergies to have a road accident is 30% higher than of other people.
With 23 first part numbers, ClimFilterâ¢ Supreme covers the key applications of the European market for: Volkswagen Golf 7, 6, 5, 4; Audi A2, A3, Skoda Octavia, Superb, Fabia, Seat Alhambra & Leon; CitroÃ«n C2, C3, DS3, C4, DS4 & C5; Peugeot C5, 207, 307 & 308, Renault Clio, ScÃ©nic & MÃ©gane; Fiat Grande Punto and Toyota Yaris.
