Donaldson made an exclusive agreement with AMSOIL to provide this synthetic nanofiber filtration media for automotive, light truck and motorcycle applications.
Everything these days can be considered Nano which weren't Nano 10 or 20 years ago but they were the same size then as they are now being 1-100nm (nanometers). For instance Carbon Black is Carbon Black but now-a-days you can get research money if you tie in "nano" to whatever it is you want to do so instead of saying Carbon Black which everyone already knows about you put "Nano Carbon Particles."
This gimmick works in academia and unfortunately also for consumers who are not aware of such marketing schemes.
On another note please look at the following images:
(Nanofiber - Go Ches Cain! not)
(Web-like appearance with reference (length) scale)
("Nano" fiber arrangement without length scale)
("Traditional" cellulose media without length scale)
How does a bunch of lines turn into a web-like structure when the apparent size of the cellulose substrate is smaller on the lines as compared to the web-like picture? I am confused.
BTW, PureONE is #1!
