LyPore(R) Defender-C Conductive Filter Media

MANCHESTER, Conn., May 25, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lydall Performance Materials, a division of Lydall, Inc. (NYSE:LDL), today announced the launch of LyPore Defender-C microglass filtration media series designed to achieve maximum filtration performance while eliminating static discharge in hydraulic, lube oil and fuel systems filtration processes. LyPore Defender-C is an extension of the Lypore Defender filter media series introduced in 2008 which is known for its superior dirt holding capacity and longer filter life. LyPore Defender-C combines the performance characteristics of the LyPore Defender series with a proprietary blend of fibers designed to dissipate electrostatic energy.

Static discharge during filtration can result in harmful varnish and lacquer buildup on internal metal, rubber and synthetic material surfaces leading to costly damage to components. Additionally, static discharge can lower a filter's effectiveness by creating holes in the filter media thus degrading the filter's particulate removal capability.

Dale Barnhart, CEO of Lydall, Inc. stated, "A key element of our growth strategy is through new product development. The launch of LyPore Defender-C demonstrates our ability to respond rapidly to a market need with an innovative solution as we execute on this strategy."

"Due to the growing use of low conductivity synthetic oils by our customers, static discharge has become an increasing problem. Our customers have asked us for a filter media solution to eliminate damaging static discharge. That is exactly what LyPore Defender-C is designed to deliver. We are excited about this breakthrough in media design which addresses a long standing problem for our customers," stated Stu Krupnick, Market Manager for Lydall's Fluid Power and Transportation Filtration Markets.

LyPore Defender-C conductive filter media contains no metals and eliminates the need for additives, after-treatments or continuous electrostatic oil cleaners. LyPore Defender-C conductive filter media is available in 3, 6, 10 and 20 micron efficiencies with acrylic latex binder or an optional high performance epoxy binder for expanded fluid compatibility and higher working temperatures.
