Quantum leap for inner dashes and floor insulators

Prime-Light is the latest advancement of Autoneum’s successful Ultra-Light technology and represents a quantum leap in terms of innovation within the segment of inner dashes and floor insulators for vehicles. Prime-Light components can be pressed into a wide variety of different shapes and sizes. This way they adjust optimally to the individual body-in-white shapes and take account of increasingly complex production processes in vehicle construction.

Prime-Light also convinces with a light weight while maintaining the same level of acoustic protection. Thanks to a 30 percent weight reduction compared with previous models, Prime-Light-based inner dashes and floor insulators save more than two kilos of a vehicle’s weight in average.

Automobile manufacturers and end consumers equally benefit from this weight reduction: If, for instance, the weight of a vehicle is reduced by 100 kilograms by means of lightweight materials, this leads to a 0.55-liter reduction of gasoline and almost 13 grams less CO₂ emissions per 100 kilometers driven (based on total fuel consumption of 5.5 liters per 100 kilometers).

Prime-Light-based inner dashes and floor insulators consist of thermoplastic cotton felt compounds in which the share of recycled materials amounts to up to 50 percent depending on the application-specific composition. In order to achieve the greatest possible acoustic protection, Autoneum analyzes the ideal density and thickness of these components already in the design phase of new vehicle models.
