Autoneum unveils Ultra-Silent in North America

March 13, 2014

To meet the high demand from international automobile manufacturers, Autoneum is launching underfloor and under engine shields made from the lightweight and multifunctional material Ultra-Silent onto the North American market. Starting in 2015, these products will be manufactured in the U.S. This technology is currently utilized at Autoneum sites in Europe only and is deployed for underfloor and under engine shields with German premium car manufacturers, among others. With Ultra-Silent, Autoneum is offering a light and powerful underbody system for vehicles. It says in comparison with conventional plastic solutions, they are up to 50% lighter. At the same time, they absorb sound, thereby reducing the interior and exterior noise of vehicles. In addition, Ultra-Silent provides resistance to stone chipping and impact. The mono-material which consists of glass-free fibers (PET) is also water and heat resistant and fully recyclable.
