Ryco Microshield Upgraded

Ryco raises the bar in anti-virus vehicle cabin filtration.

There’s simply never been a more important time to have a vehicle’s cabin filter working at its peak level of performance. Ryco’s upgraded MicroShield range of Cabin Filters are the most efficient and micron rated in the Australasian market and a must-fit for vehicle and workshop owners in this current climate. Whereas most cabin filters are rated to 2.5 micron, the new MicroShield sets the standard with a staggering 0.3 micron.

“The upgraded Ryco MicroShield range of cabin filters are made from N99 medical grade media which provides both anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. The MicroShield range of Cabin Filters from Ryco are 99.7 per cent efficient and tested and compliant to ISO11155-2:2009 standards,” said Alastair Hampton, General Manager of Engineering and Innovation.

The increased protection of the upgraded MicroShield range comes from an innovative three-layer system. The first layer is anti-viral with natural polyphenol extracts that eliminate virus, bacteria and allergens. The second layer is activated carbon which is designed for odours and gas absorption. The third and last is medical grade polypropylene and electrostatically charged which collects more micro particles. All MicroShield Cabin Filters are 100 per cent safe and free from pollution.

“Cabin filters are a relatively new innovation in passenger cars and many vehicle owners aren’t even aware their vehicles are fitted with one. This can lead to these filters not being replaced as regularly as they should. In a time that the health and safety of many people has become so important, replacing an existing cabin filter with the best available on the market is a reasonably small investment to make,” Hampton added.

One of the many advantages of fitting an upgraded Ryco MicroShield Cabin Filter is the anti-viral layer inhibits the survival of bacteria and viruses using a natural micronutrient called polyphenol. The benefit is that not only does a Ryco Cabin Filter stop the bacteria and viruses from entering the car, it also destroys them at the same time. This includes serious diseases like Influenza A and H1N1/H3N3.

With research showing that a vehicle’s interior can contain over 10 times more pollutants that the outside air, Ryco is strongly urging all vehicle owners and automotive workshops to make a cabin filter check and/ or replacement a priority. When completed by a professional, a check or replacement takes only a matter of minutes on most vehicles.

When it comes to product design and development, Alistair Hampton commented “The Ryco MicroShield cabin filters now exceed the fit, sealing and filtration efficiency of their original equipment (OE) counterparts.

“To do this, we concentrated on precisely matching the OE filter housings using our own Melbourne based R&D team and technology like 3D scanning plus we focussed on improving the cabin air design and construction. The results have been impressive.”

Ryco’s upgraded MicroShield Cabin Filters are available in 29-part numbers, which covers hundreds of popular vehicle models. Key part numbers include RCA164M for Toyota Aurion, Camry, Kluger, Prius, RAV4 and RCA182M for Isuzu D Max. More part numbers will be progressively available in the near future. The upgraded versions of MicroShield Cabin Filters will be denoted with an “M” on packaging as opposed to “MS”.
