Content - Hybrid Acoustics™
Unique combination of absorption and insulation
Hybrid Acoustics™ is a lightweight technology that offers the possibility to tune both absorption and insulation properties locally, according to the respective vehicle targets. The innovative concept is applicable to interior NVH applications such as dash inner insulators, wheelhouse inner insulators, parcel shelf insulators or floor insulators.
Combined with Autoneum‘s unique acoustic simulation and optimization toolbox, Hybrid Acoustics™ delivers the best acoustic performance to weight ratio. Further, the technology simplifies the local performance tuning by targeted engineering of the fibrous top layer without introducing additional materials or layers.
The unique benefits:
- Significant weight reduction of up to 50% compared to conventional mass-spring systems while achieving a similar in-vehicle acoustic performance
- Improved insulation compared to state of the art lightweight, absorbing treatments
- Easy targeted tuning of absorption and insulation properties anywhere on the part
In addition, product applications of Hybrid Acoustics™ are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), have a high content of recycled materials and, being lightweight, they contribute to reducing CO2 emissions.
