Nonwovens in Automotives
Engineered fabrics in autmotivesEngineered fabrics constitute a critical part of the automotive
manufacturing with more than 40 different parts being made from them today. The use of the engineered non-woven fabric is increasing by the day as more and more companies move towards a greener manufacturing policy. From Trunk liners, air filters, carpets to fuel filters, engineered non-woven fabrics help make cars safer, sleeker, cost effective and enhance their longevity.
Engineered nonwoven fabrics enjoy countless advantages over their woven or knit counterparts. Listing some of them:
The material can be moulded and contoured to fit virtually any interior, trim or other complex surface/cavity.
Producers can also tailor the materials' thickness, rigidity and fiber makeup to meet even the most demanding requirement of vehicle manufacturers.
They offer superior color and texture matches and options. .
These materials provide a more uniform draw across the length and width of the carpet than woven materials.
Non-woven fabrics can be designed to be stronger than comparable materials.
They can be customised to be made extremely abrasion- and heat-resistant.
A cost effective choice
Engineered non-woven fabrics also make immense business sense for manufacturers and fabricators because they are cost effective in comparison to their woven counterparts. Their light weight also allows for better fuel efficiency during transportation.
