Application of non-woven fabrics in the automotive and transportation industries

Why use nonwovens in automotive and transportation?

The use of nonwovens has increased substantially in recent years. Today more than 40 automotive parts are made with nonwovens fabrics, from trunk liners and carpets to air and fuel filters.

By building in the essential properties which are necessary for good performance and safety, nonwovens help reduce the weight of the car, enhance the comfort and aesthetics and provide advanced insulation, fire retardancy and resistance to water, fuels, extremes of temperature and abrasion. They contribute to making cars safer, more attractive, longer-lasting, more cost-effective and more sustainable.

The use of natural fibre nonwovens, often as the reinforcing substrate in composite parts- is also increasing significantly. Due to their versatility and numerous benefits they are also widely used in the design and construction of other vehicles and transportation means-aeroplanes, trains, boats, spacecraft and satellites.
