JBC Technologies recently attended Foam Expo 2018, North America’s leading exhibition and conference for the technical foam industry. As an automotive die cutter, JBC learned important lessons in two major areas: vehicle light weighting, and sound deadening. Here's what we learned at Foam Expo.
Die cut Nitto Denko foams for automotive gaskets provide environmental sealing, sound deadening, shock absorption, and vibration dampening. JBC Technologies sources automotive foams from Nitto Denko Corporation and can die cut automotive gaskets to specific shapes, sizes, and geometries.
Flame retardant automotive foams resist burning so that a vehicle’s occupants have time to escape in the event of a fire. Some automotive foams are inherently fire-resistant, but others are treated with flame retardants. Standards for flame retardancy vary and include FMVSS 302 and UL94V-0.
