Purolator has introduced its Purolator Synthetic Oil Filter, which utilizes 100-percent synthetic media with pleat support technology containing wire backing, resulting in a filter that has more “capacity” than conventional oil filters, according to the company. At the same time, Purolator Synthetic features 99 percent ‘efficiency’ which means that it can capture and safely hold 99 percent of particulates 25 microns in size or larger, the company stated.

“It is this extraordinary combination of capacity and efficiency, along with design technology, that maintains the integrity of the media for extended periods of time,” said Chuck Kerrigan, Director of Marketing, for Purolator. This makes Purolator Synthetic a 10,000-mile filter available for those motorists that are using synthetic motor oils in their vehicles.”
