Keeping Engine Noise Under the Hood
Dow Automotive Systems has announced a new polyurethane system for hoodliners that can be customized to meet performance requirements while balancing weight and manufacturing needs. In addition to offering sound absorption and damping qualities, it is fast-curing for increased productivity and flexible enough to deliver large, complex shapes.
“Our hoodliners enable customers to address global requirements for road traffic noise reduction,“ said Dr. Esther Quintanilla, EMEA Marketing Manager for Dow Automotive Systems. “What that means is this: our lightweight polyurethane foam allows for a quieter ride while helping to reduce vehicle weight.”
