The X-Treme pleated panel filters with new self-supported media are the latest offerings from this company. According to the company, the media offers high strength, moisture resistance and eliminates the need for an expanded metal backing. The frame and media pack are bonded with a water repellent adhesive to maintain structural integrity even when wet. The filters will not delaminate, buckle or collapse. Pleat stabilizer straps on the air entering side add rigidity and maintain proper pleat spacing to maximize dirt loading. The filters are rated MERV 7.
