With Relive-1, Autoneum offers a premium technology for automotive carpets that not only scores with its aesthetic appearance, but also has an exceptional environmental performance.
Among other things, carpets made of Relive-1 feature a particularly sustainable use of raw materials: For example, only recycled PET bottles are used to manufacture the carpet yarns. Autoneum reuses this raw material, thus conserving natural resources and reducing plastic waste – while at the same time ensuring that new, high-quality carpet systems for future vehicle generations can be produced cost-effectively from used PET bottles. Moreover, Relive-1 is an important step towards mono-material constructions and consequently, zero waste tufted carpet production.
At the same time, Relive-1 stands for the above-average product quality of Autoneum: Compared to standard carpets in compact and to large class vehicles, Relive-1 carpets are more robust thanks to significantly higher abrasion resistance, and easy to clean thanks to the vertical alignment of the filaments and the water repellency of polyester. As a result, small particles such as wood splinters, dust or pebbles as well as liquids can be removed easily with no residual traces, which is a key benefit for recreational vehicles like SUVs. For premium class vehicles, the marriage of outstanding performance and sustainability defines nowadays the new luxury.
