Textile fibres in automotive applications, encompass a broad spectrum of application including interior fitments, safety facilities, tyre and plastic reinforcement, carpets, fibre composites, sound and thermal insulations, air and oil filters, brake pads, gaskets and automotive clothing. A modern car uses more than 30 kgs of fibres for interior and exterior purposes. The customer is looking for aesthetically pleasing interiors, great comfort and fuel economy. However, a lot of fibres are processed in invisible pieces. The textile product can satisfy all these requirements and is lightweight, so the fibres offer great weight reduction, which in turn gives fuel economy.
- Natural recycled fibres: e.g. flax, jute, kenaf, sisal for eco composites.
Bio-composites and the usage of sustainable fibres have become increasingly popular with car manufacturers because they can reduce vehicle weight, which improves performance and lowers CO2 emissions. They are used in car interiors for components like door and floor panels, but they also have more structural applications.Learn more
