The DNA Power Origins

Total commitment to excellence on every step. All DNA's advanced technical expertise, latest machinery, innovative solutions, attention to detail, is just a start.

Power by quality you can trust.

We, at DNA®, proudly introduce a filter that can last the life of the vehicle. Strict quality control for construction & materials, chosen only by their highest quality, are some of the factors that allow us to offer a Lifetime Warranty!

Power by the best materials for the environment.

We call it “Advanced Environment Friendly Engineering”. We use Eco friendly materials, like our 100% organic cotton instead of paper or synthetic foam.

Power by controlled & unique manufacturing processes.

CNC machining, In-House tooling manufacturing, industrial automation & robotic production systems etc, combined with our attention to detail and continuous quality control, ensures that each and every DNA® is a product of Advanced Air Filter Engineering.

Power by performance.

DNA® increased air flow means increased engine power & torque: up to +12 hp increase (common for some applications), resulting in crisp throttle response and better control. Translate this as increased dynamic safety that you will discover from the very first moment you will use our products.

The Power of a World Champion.

DNA® lives where ever high performance is a winning element. We have the will, the product, the custom solutions and the experience to excel in the toughest testing environment: motorsport! Inside every DNA® Filter breathes a World Champion!

Power by being “Green” without any compromise in performance.

Besides the presence of environment friendly materials and the fact that you will never have to throw away our filter, the overall DNA®performance properties, translates to lower emissions and better fuel economy!These are the results of a healthier, cleaner operating engine, under all driving conditions, without forgetting to mention the safety aspects that come with this improved engine performance. Of course all these mean that using a DNA® filter you get more out of your vehicle: Increased power delivery & cost efficient use!

Power by the best materials for the job.

High performance, starts from using the best materials available that meet the high DNA® standards. High tensile strength, high temperature and UV radiation resistance properties, is a must for our materials.

Power by innovative design.

Hi-tech, precision CAD design (computer aided design) & CAM (computer aided manufacturing). Revolutionary & unique design solutions like the Full Contour design (FCd) which expands the active filtration area up to +80%, the factory glued, high quality EVA foam seals, to ensure a correct & secure sealing and easy filter installation, are some of the features that make every DNA® the best air filter money can buy.

Power by State-Of-Art testing & evaluating methods.

Air box Reverse Engineering using Faro & Microscribe 3D Arms. CAAFT (computer aided air flow testing). In-House dyno testing on every single product, using our expert tuning know how.

Power by engine protection & efficiency.

Search no more for the best combination of power & protection! DNA® High Performance Air Filters, “trap” all the dust particles that flow towards the filter, even the very fine ones (down to 5 microns), guarantying that the only thing that passes the filter is just clean & fresh air!

Power by non-stop research & innovation.

DNA® is constantly on the move looking for new frontiers, searching and testing new materials and manufacturing processes, to keep efficiency, power & protection on the highest levels, to be always one step ahead: the standard for high performance air filters.

Power by being one of you, sharing the same passion: motorsport!

We’re coming closer to you every day. In a car or with our motorcycles, driving on favorite roads, beyond them or at the racetracks around the world, DNA® will always be there to transform air into power. To ensure that you will keep on smiling on every occasion!

The Anatomy of a DNA High Performance Filter

This is what Power is made of! A DNA High Performance Filter is a high quality, next generation multilayer cotton gauze, oil impregnated air filter.

1. The DNA Cotton

This very special cotton is designed by DNA's R&D engineers for High Performance filtering purposes. The basic media is a non woven surgical cotton gauze with a modified TEX & THREAD, with extremely high strength of break. This unique cotton media, actually is a "hairy hybrid" featuring extremely high air flow rates and excellent filtering efficiency that exceeds 98%.

2. The DNA Wire Mesh

The DNA wire mesh, is a very special material designed by DNA's R&D engineers. Made out of marine grade 5000 series Aluminum, features a unique "wrap & fill" and precisely calculated wire diameter, to have the necessary high tensile strength and elasticity to last a lifetime. Additionaly it is protected against oxidation by a fine layer of epoxy coating. The DNA wire mesh is designed to perfectly support the cotton layers and at the same time not restrict the air flow.

3. The DNA Filtering Media

The DNA Filtering Media consists of 4 layers of DNA cotton, sandwiched between 2 layers of DNA wire mesh, precisely pleated all together. We produce a very wide selection of media, starting from 8 mm to 50 mm height, with an infinite size of "Pitch". Actually we can choose from an unlimited combination of DNA Filtering Media when designing a new filter. Another important feature of our filtering media is the "Large pleat edge radius". This feature allows the edge to be an active part of the filtering media, instead of a "dead" inactive area as our competitors is. The result is a unified high air flow of the filter. The only drawback of this design is that the media is very sensitive during production before molding and must be handled with extreme care, increasing the production cost.

4. The DNA Filter Oil

This is an extremely important part of the DNA filter. As soon as the DNA Oil is added to the cotton media, the cotton is "static charged" and transformed into an unbeatable filtering material! To achieve this fantastic result we have developed a unique air filter oil formula. The specifications of our DNA Air Filter Oil are as impressive as our filters are. Humidity will not attack the oil, even if the filter is submersed in water. The flow of the filter remains unchanged even under extreme rainy conditions with high humidity. (We have seen many competitors' filters transformed into a "milky mess" when it rains, severely reducing the performance of the engine). The oil has low viscosity, plus very high temperature resistance and stability. It will uniformly spread and stay on the filter regardless the temperature. Additionaly, it is UV resistant and easily soluble to assist cleaning the filter.

5. The DNA PU (elastomer polyurethane)

The DNA PU is a thixotropic material, that we use to manufacture the high quality "frame" of the filter, with unique material specifications. High tensile strength with the necessary hardness for each application, high temperature, fuel and oil resistance, the DNA PU will keep the filtering media in place, it will absorb vibration and will last for a life-time.

6. The DNA EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate polymer) closed cell seals

We use only high quality EVA seals. Precisely cut and factory installed (glued) using industrial grade adhesive, guaranty a perfect airtight sealing and trouble free filter installation for the user. The DNA EVA seals and the industrial adhesive are fuel, oil and temperature resistant. Additionally the DNA cleaner will not affect them when the filter is cleaned!

7. The DNA FCd design technology

The DNA FCd design or "Welcome to the Future"! At least +20% and up to +80% more filtration area, using DNA FCd technology is common. The unique revolutionary design, an innovation by DNA, allows the pleated filtering media to follow precisely the air box contour, regardless the complexity of the shape, seriously increasing air flow. Taking advantage of the complete footprint of the air box, we eliminate "dead spots" that rob power. If the area is there why not use it!
