Freudenberg Performance Materials, a leading supplier of innovative technical textiles, will host a series of expert interviews at its booth at Techtextil, a leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens that takes place from May 14-17, 2018 in Frankfurt. Freudenberg will be presenting innovative acoustic pads that feature high noise absorption in the vehicle interior. The lightweight pads help customers to reduce the weight of vehicles. Freudenberg acoustic pads are suited for use in various automotive applications, such as door panels, headliners, trunk linings, wheel arches and more.
Freudenberg’s series-produced gas diffusion layers (GDL) contribute to making this technology more economical, the company says. Their thickness uniformity and material homogeneity are designed to increase electrical and thermal conductivity and improve the transport of gases and liquids within the fuel cell. Also on show will be Freudenberg’s wound pads, made from hydrophilic PU foams with a direct coating of silicone adhesives, which are said to be more effective than the commonly used foams with transfer coatings.
Finally, Freudenberg will be presenting the padding made from continuous fibre balls, which functions as a perfect substitute for down in clothing. The novel insulation material is made from 100 per cent recycled polyester fibre balls and combines the advantages of both padding and down. It is the ideal solution for the sports and outdoor sector but is also suitable for use in fashion garments.
