NONWOVENS OF THE FUTURE FOR THE CAR MARKETApril 1st, 2020
Today, more than 40 individual components in the production of domestic vehicles use nonwoven materials, from trunk lining to tyre strengthening layers. As designs become more complex, costs become ever more critical for commercial success. We’d use our strong contacts within the automotive sector to assess innovation in the use of nonwovens in automobile manufacturing sector – looking at what research indicates will be made of nonwovens in future, especially as cars continued to attempt to lightweight to improve their emissions performance. We can look at research in Japan, South Korea, Europe and the USA and look at new ways of using nonwovens in automobiles and also at the kind of nonwovens being developed for these important uses.
