Undesirable mechanical sounds and vibrations in automobiles due to structure-borne and air-borne noises can lead to passenger discomfort and hamper the vehicle durability. Automotive industry uses the Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) material to reduce these noises and improve ride quality. The growing focus of car manufacturer’s noise control in vehicles helps enhance the fuel economy, reduce cabin sounds, and improve durability.
The demand for non-woven automobile NVH materials has increased owing to their excellent properties such as lightweight, integrated production, and superior water, oil, and diesel resistance. Automobile manufacturers are adopting and implementing high-quality and durable NVH materials in their commercial and passenger vehicles.
