The filter is wrapped in an outer plugwrap, which can be standard or non-porous, and is stiff to create the flute appearance and ensure a high-quality finish. The plugwrap can be can be either standard or non-porous depending on ventilation requirements.

A range of filter configurations, lengths, circumferences and flutes are available ensuring each construction enhances brand and suits customer taste and filtration requirements.
