Automotive

We’ve seen each other today... in the car

Did you drive a car today? Then you can be pretty sure that you were on the road with Freudenberg Performance Materials. Our pioneering solutions not only matter to you but also to the automotive market, because we make driving more cost-efficient, climate-friendly and comfortable. Freudenberg nonwovens can be found throughout the car. Where? Take a look for yourself!

Looking good for the eyes, environment and purse

Design diversity with headliner facings & trims

_Our headliners provide a pleasant climate and ambience in the vehicle interior and are visually appealing. That is because our printing technology offers plenty of scope for creative, sophisticated designs. As a result, design diversity is just as high as cost efficiency.

_Mechanically bonded and featuring high abrasion resistance, Freudenberg nonwovens still look flawless even after many years of driving time.

_Sit in comfort while driving more economically. Our innovative surfaces make headliners, trunk linings and rear seat backings beautifully lightweight, optimally supporting you in environmentally friendly and fuel-saving driving.

_By the way, it is highly likely that your headliner comes from us. After all, we are the global market leader in headliners made from nonwovens.

Successful, quiet and tranquil

Audibly excellent textile fibers

_Textile fibers that are 100 times thinner than a human hair make loud into quiet. With innovative Evolon® microfilaments that suppress driving noise, you can listen to your favorite music, understand your passengers more clearly or simply enjoy the peace of a night drive.

_Evolon® has very good noise damping properties. The closely connected microfilaments form millions of “micro-channels”, which have the optimal air permeability needed to absorb noise.

_Where other materials require heavy layers and thickness to isolate noises, ours absorb the sound of the engine, rolling wheels and other driving noises, by being thinner, lighter and more technically advanced than other products.

_High flexibility: because our acoustic composites can be deformed, cut and glued so well, you will find them in dashboards and carpets. They are also suitable for use in many other applications.

Environmentally friendly, cost-effective and light

Sustainably convincing in production and processing

_Stay in shape: you can be happy because the chances are high that an essential part of your tufted carpet comes from us. Why is that good? Because our polyester spunbonded nonwovens can be very easily deep-drawn and deformed during processing. Once shaped, they last for years – which increases the life of your carpet. With our backings made from recycled material, our customers need less energy to manufacture their products. A double win in terms of sustainability.

_Our Lutraflor technology is ecologically impressive as well: it is embedded in molded automotive carpets, throw-in mats and in the lining of interior and luggage compartments. It is free from latex and other chemical binders. _Automotive carpets equipped with Lutraflor technology are up to 40 percent lighter than other models. This can save fuel and reduce CO2 emissions.

_Made from environmentally friendly recycled polyester, the material beneath your feet not only looks great but is also durable and has high abrasion resistance. Perfect conditions for a long relationship.
