Automotive

The fibre is also heat bonded to produce panels for boots, side paneling, and parcel shelves. The car interior is subject to intense light exposure and high temperatures. PFE’s Auto products are produced with the appropriate UV stabilisers to prevent degradation of the structured needlefelts in prestigious motor vehicles, where extremely stringent performance parameters and rigorous testing regimes are the norm.

PFE Auto fibre is produced from homopolymer pellets, which are extruded to create a melt spun, round polypropylene cross section. The addition of various stabilisation systems provides a range of flexible options on enquiry. Customer specific colours are matched on request, with a minimum quantity of 5 tonnes per colour applicable. Flame retardancy requirements may be addressed by adding flame-retardants or inhibitors directly to the core of the fibre.

The following products are available in this category

Auto 17 and Auto 33 fibres have been developed specifically for processing where special attention is required for structured needlefelts. Due to the fibre construction and crimp levels, improved properties are achieved in the final product. Polypropylene is ideal for the automotive industry as it is stain proof, UV resistant and heat resistant.

Auto 12 fibre has been developed to meet the precise specifications of our customers’ global technology partners, who are leaders in the manufacture of automotive and trim components. The fibre offers an extremely high crimp index for specialised applications.
