European air filter manufacturer BMC will soon enter the Philippine Market. Based in Bologna, Italy, BMC is an international company with branches in Germany, Japan and USA, along with over 40 distributors all over the world. BMC produces the world’s best quality air filters both for racing and for street use.The BMC Air Filter Company is today the leader in the production of high performance air filters and air induction systems. BMC air filters are designed and constructed by Italian technicians to give the highest performance in extreme conditions. Since 1996 BMC Air Filters has equipped some of the most important teams in Formula 1 and the American Le Mans Series such as Ferrari, BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Porsche and Audi, thus demonstrating the high quality level of the product. This experience matured with 10 years of collaboration with the best teams committed to the most important international car races, is transferred to aftermarket production to obtain a product of high quality, performance and reliability which is in constant evolution and with no equal on the market. The wide range of BMC air filters includes various products such as classic panel and cylindrical filters as replacements to original paper filters; conical filters for direct induction; the OTA - Oval Trumpet Airbox, the CDA - Carbon Dynamic Airbox and the DIA - Direct Intake Air system, the BMC “Junior” dynamic air intake system. To complement the various intake systems there is also a large range of specific accessories available to simplify fitting and installation. BMC air filters are produced using a “Full Moulding” system that enables the characteristic red filter to be realised from a single mould with no welded joints thus avoiding easy breakage. The rubber used in BMC air filtering systems has a long life, is very durable and has optimum adhesion characteristics to all shapes of airboxes. The filtering element is composed of layers of special cotton gauze soaked with low viscosity oil for better filtration efficiency without compromising air flow penetration. The element is covered with an epoxy coated alloy mesh to ensure protection from petrol fumes and oxidization due to air humidity. BMC filtration systems give better performance to the engine, both in terms of power and torque without compromising reliability. BMC air filters are washable and reusable by using the appropriate washing kit.

BMC plans to introduce replacement drop-in filters for popular car models such as Toyota Vios/Fortuner/Innova/Hilux/Altis, Mitsubishi Montero Sport/Strada, Subaru Forrester/Impreza, Honda City/Jazz/Civic, Hyundai Accent/Tucson/Veloster/Genesis.
