Strenuous driving conditions such as idling in heavy traffic, driving on dirty, dusty roads and towing heavy loads can put a lot of strain on an engine. When operating in these environments, a greater-than-normal amount of contaminants can be ingested. If these particles aren’t trapped by the air filter, they can cause damage to the engine. So, we designed and constructed the FRAM® Tough Guard® air filter with advanced features to capture and hold more dirt. The result? It keeps engines cleaner in extreme driving conditions. Don’t forget, our experts recommend installing a clean air filter every 12,000 miles.1

Technology

  • Pre-oiled media formulated for attracting and capturing smaller dirt and dust particles provides increased dirt-holding capacity.
  • Increased durability is achieved because of the heavier filter screen that extends into urethane to provide greater integrity and reduce the likelihood of collapse and tearing in tough driving conditions.
  • The pleat-lock glue bead feature allows pleats to “lock” into place for consistent airflow and less restriction to help overall engine performance, consistent airflow and less restriction.2
