The need for comfort and the lowest possible noise emissions from cars is continuously increasing. Acoustic factors in vehicles’ interiors are also changing, with new technological trends such as lightweight construction or hybrid and electric cars. NVHT solutions (noise, vibration, harshness, thermal) offer numerous benefits in sound absorption, damping and thermal insulation. They allow for new design freedom and flexibility of applications.
The acoustic nonwoven 3M™ Thinsulate™ Acoustic Insualtion material enables many solutions for noise reduction in the vehicle, including:
3M™ Vibration Control Tape CL1151 is a constrained layer damper designed to reduce resonant noise, vibration and fatigue in metal, plastic panels and support structures. When applied to a vibrating structure, the polymer used in Vibration Control Tape CL1151 converts vibration to negligible heat, thus reducing vibration amplitudes and structure-borne noise. Anywhere where weight must be reduced, or there is a lack of space, our self-adhesive damping tape is the ideal solution. The tape consists of a viscoelastic pressure sensitive acrylate adhesive and an aluminium foil. This unique combination makes the film ideal for lightweight materials such as steel, aluminium, carbon, magnesium or plastic.
The many benefits include:
