The automotive industry is developing at a great speed in recent years due to the nature of the electric vehicles market and Industry 4.0 initiatives. With these updates, we too must look at ways to improve our technologies and materials.
We have been in the airbag cover and automotive functional parts industry for decades now, and have developed an improved material that will appeal in particular to the US and Asian markets.
We are working with our trusted (local) Asian supplier to fulfil PET non-woven specifications that meet all Tier 1 OEM demands. Having carried out months of extensive testing, we have developed this material that outperforms what is currently on the market. Current PET materials do not meet the 4,000-hour testing, therefore causing them to deteriorate quicker. Our testing clearly shows that our developed materials can exceed this time requirement and perform excellently.
Due to the stringent nature of the automotive industry, we are constantly looking to improve how we develop materials that continue to meet all standards. OEMs are particularly strict about airbag packaging and covers, stating these materials must last a minimum of 20 years to comply.
In our labs, we carried out over 4,000 hours of testing and fulfilled the following requirements:
Our rigorous testing found that our material outperforms what is currently on the market, making it a go-to choice for markets that develop using PET non-woven airbag covers.
We understand reliability and efficiency need to be a top priority while keeping in line with the outlined automotive specifications. Extending our material testing capabilities means we can go the extra mile for our customers, as we expand our US and Asian market automotive developments. We hope you will join us on this journey.
