Mahle have a long tradition in the filter industry. MAHLE—historically a developer of engine components—recognized early how important optimally functioning filters are for the circulation of engine air and fluids. After all, efficient combustion requires good filtration—regardless of whether oil, fuel or intake air has to be cleaned. And because people stay healthy only when they breathe clean air, cabin air filters are another important part of their program.
Hammerite first appeared in 1962, and soon developed a name for quality products with its unique formulation. Today, Hammerite is sold in over 55 countries worldwide. Their knowledge and understanding of metal remains unrivalled and Hammerite continues to be supported by world-class research and innovation – therefore, you can rest assured that when they produced Waxoyl, they knew what they were doing.
The importance of regular wiper blade maintenance and inspection is commonly overlooked. Wiper blades are not something that is used every day (unless you live in Cornwall) even in the depths of winter.

To protect the SCR system the vehicle manufacturers have issued a specification standard ISO 22241 for the quality of AdBlue.

AdBlue is stored in a separate tank on the vehicle. It is precisely metered into the hot exhaust manifold where the urea solution breaks-down into Ammonia and reacts with exhaust gasses in the presence of a catalytic converter. The oxides of nitrogen formed at combustion are converted into harmless elementary nitrogen and water. This method is called Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). It is a common misconception that AdBlue is a fuel additive.
