By now, Filipinos are very familiar with N95 rated facemasks. Becoming in demand after the eruption of Taal Volcano last January, this type of facemask became a must-have especially for areas within the radius of the heavy ashfall from the eruption. Two months later, facemasks have become an essential, not just for certain localities, but for every Filipino in every town and city in the country.

When it comes to particle filtration, the N95 standard is among the highest. N95 is the standard set by the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health for 95% air filtration of airborne particles measuring 0.3 microns or higher.

N95 filters are made from cutting-edge manufacturing and material technologies using an extremely fine mesh of synthetic electrostatic polymer fibers, also known as non-woven polypropylene fabric, through a process called melt-blowing. Melt-blowing forms the inner filtration layer that filters out hazardous particles including bacteria and viruses.

And now, the N95 standard is becoming available in automobile air conditioning (AC) cabin filters. All Chery Tiggo 5X, Tiggo 7 and Tiggo 8 models come standard with ultra-efficient long-life N95 AC cabin air filters.

The cabin filters in these Chery models work in three phases using three layers of filtration. In phase 1, a percolator filter blocks larger particles like dust and outdoor pollution (i.e. black diesel exhaust smoke). In phase 2, the electrostatic fine fiber mesh filters out particles as small as 0.3 microns with 95% efficiency. In phase 3, an activated charcoal layer filters out harmful gases (i.e. toluene, N-butane, SO2) and deodorizes peculiar smells.


The high efficiency of the Chery AC filter also helps dehydrate and remove moisture from the cabin air, which effectively reduces the lifespan of most germs. The AC cabin filters used in the subcompact Chery Tiggo 5X 1.5, compact Tiggo 7 1.5 Turbo and midsize 7-seater Tiggo 8 1.5 Turbo use the latest ultra-efficient PM0.3 standard, the third and latest generation of AC cabin filter technology.

Chery Auto Philippines is making their new cars with N95 cabin filters easy to own under their zero down payment promo applicable to all Chery models, from the subcompact Tiggo 2 and Tiggo 5X to the compact Tiggo 7, all the way to the midsize 7-seater Tiggo 8.
