GFS Wave® Paint Booth Filters
The most versatile single-stage exhaust filter media made for paint booths, GFS Wave accommodates all coatings and a variety of spray applications, from clear coats to high solids paints.
With an exceptional removal efficiency rating of 99.94 percent, GFS Wave filters minimize particle emissions. In addition to protecting the environment, a clean exhaust air stream shields the paint booth’s exhaust chamber, ductwork and fan from overspray accumulation.
The convoluted design of GFS Wave filters maximizes surface area for exceptional depth loading and holding capacity. By effectively capturing and retaining overspray, GFS Wave filters reduce runoff. This results in less cleanup on the floor of the paint booth and quicker, more efficient filter changes.
GFS Wave paint booth filters meet NESHAP requirements. The material also complies with NFPA 33, OSHA and UL 900 standards.
High-performance polyester media is designed for capturing overspray of paint, glue, resin, tar, teflon, oil, grease and other airborne liquid particles. Made from 1-inch-thick, multi-layered, multi-density polyester, it features high-capacity capture with high-efficiency air pollution control. The media is UL listed, Class II approved and meets OSHA requirements.
Used to filter intake and exhaust air for GFS’ ovens, panel filters are available in wood or metal frames. The filters are designed to capture overspray that was not retained by the exhaust filtration media, helping maintain a cleaner environment and avoid overspray in exhaust fan blades.
Gold polyester exhaust filters are made from multi-layered, multi-density polyester. Featuring high efficiency and excellent paint holding capacity, gold polyester filters are a cost-effective replacement filter media for any paint booth.
Fiberglass exhaust filters are exclusively designed to collect paint overspray. Made from continuous filament glass fibers with an open-weave pattern, the filters allow particles to penetrate deep into the 2-inch-thick pad and hold more paint. The filters are UL listed and Class II approved.
Intake pads are a high-efficiency mesh intake filter that removes more than 90 percent of particles at 5 microns. They feature an internally welded steel frame for easy fit, with a self-sealing gasket. Internal wire support and heat-sealed seams prevent media flutter. The pads are UL listed and Class II approved.
Made from synthetic fibers and resin-bonded with a special adhesive, tacky roll media intake filters are a progressively structured, high-performance media. The pads feature an internally welded steel frame for easy fit, with a self-sealing gasket. The filters are self-extinguishing, with a 100 percent coating of fibers. Tacky roll media is UL listed and Class II approved.
High temperature roll media is designed for use with SmartCure® control systems, which generate higher heat during cure cycles. Filter material can withstand operating temperatures up to 220 degrees Fahrenheit. Its polyester fiber is bonded with a polyvinyl chloride binder, featuring a flame-retardant treatment.
AdvanceCure Accelerated Airflow Systems require their own filters, since the air intake is sized differently than other systems. The air entering the AdvanceCure System is filtered, ensuring clean air is blown out onto freshly painted vehicles. The filters are made of high-loft, non-woven, expanded polyester, featuring a 99.84 percent average arrestance. They’re UL listed and Class II approved.

Global Finishing Solutions’ high-efficiency, three-stage filtration system delivers a higher holding capacity and more cost savings than other systems. It is highly effective at capturing high volumes of paint and dust, with up to 99.9 percent filter efficiency at 5 microns. The system is used for dust collection, powder coating and aerospace chromate coatings. It includes roll media, panel filters and six-pocket bag filters, and meets NESHAP requirements.
Stage 1 – Multi-Layered Polyester Roll Media: Air enters through a layer of multi-layered polyester roll media, constructed of a mixture of lofted denier fiber. Air leaves the media through a mixture of heavily needled media to densify, weighing 1.2 ounces per sq. ft.
Stage 2 – Pad Filters: The filter panel features two different layers of tackified polyester media, sealed together so the tackified layers of each media touch in the center. Air enters through a multi-layered, multi-density polyester with a heavy, non-migrating tackifier on the air-leaving side. Air leaves through media that is constructed of a heavily needled polyester, densified up to ¼-inch thick and tackified on the air-entry side with a weight of 0.42 ounces per sq. ft.
Stage 3 – Bag Filters: A six-pocket bag filter helps capture overspray to increase efficiency. It features a composite of pre-filter, melt-blown and spun-bound polyester fibers. The pockets are sewn together on the perimeter with two heat seals, forming three air channels in each bag pocket. The bag pockets on the metal support are inserted into a galvanized metal header, which contains a sealing agent inside of each header to eliminate the possibility of paint bypass within the filter.
Wave — Roll Media: Incorporating an excellent filtration capacity and longer filter life, GFS Wave has a 99.94 percent removal efficiency, with a holding capacity of 4.4 pounds.

CPA – Paint Arrestor Roll Media: Air enters through a layer of multi-layered polyester roll media, constructed of a mixture of lofted denier fiber. Air leaves the media through a mixture of heavily needled media to densify, weighing 1.2 ounces per square foot.
MEPT Panel Filter: The filter panel features two different layers of tackified polyester media, sealed together so the tackified layers of each media touch in the center. Air enters through a multi-layered, multi-density polyester with a heavy, non-migrating tackifier on the air-leaving side. Air leaves through media that is constructed of a heavily needled polyester, densified up to ¼-inch thick and tackified on the air-entry side with a weight of 0.42 ounces per square foot.
Pocket Bag Filter: A six-pocket bag filter helps capture overspray to increase efficiency. It features a composite of pre-filter, melt-blown and spun-bound polyester fibers. The pockets are sewn together on the perimeter with two heat seals, forming three air channels in each bag pocket. The bag pockets on the metal support are inserted into a galvanized metal header, which contains a sealing agent inside of each header to eliminate the possibility of paint bypass within the filter.
Paper mesh filters are combination baffle/strainer-type overspray collectors, constructed of layers of slit and UL listed, Class II approved kraft media. The front layers employ larger baffle openings, followed by layers of progressively smaller diamond designs and an optional back layer of dense, non-woven polyester.
Pleated cardboard is an accordion-style, collapsible paper filter with round holes that traps overspray and reduces filter replacement cost. Overspray-laden air is drawn into the filter by the booth’s fan and makes several radical directional changes as it’s forced through the trapping chambers of the filter. Kinetic energy generated by each change in air direction causes individual paint particles to be deposited on the surfaces within the filter.
Paper mesh polyester backing paper filters are highly efficient with an excellent dust-holding capacity. Constructed of seven-layer expanded paper, they feature a white polyester backing to maximize strength and efficiency.
Medium-efficiency, pleated panel filters for powder and dust collection are made of a non-woven cotton/synthetic blend media. They feature radial pleat construction, allowing for minimum pressure. Filter pads are UL and CUL listed, and Class I and Class II approved.
Powder and dust bag filters are pocketed with individual edges and internal dividing bars that are heat-sealed for no stitch holes. Pockets are assembled using individual modular design, and the exceptionally high dust-holding capacity provides a long filter life.
High-efficiency cartridge filters are used to collect powder dust in powder recovery booths and in safe air dust collection systems. They are high-strength filter media, featuring a flame-retardant treatment.
