Foams for Automotive Application

XLPE and IXPE Foam Application in Automotive Field

Newcean offers a wide range of specialized polyolefin foams to cater for the increasing trend towards light weight, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly materials. That is, where all materials in a laminate (foam, fabric, supporting material) belong to the same polymer family and are therefore easier to recycle.

Newcean specializes in the development, production, sales and marketing of chemical and physically cross-linked polyolefin foams. The company has the potential to manufacture customized products capable of meeting the requirements of automotive OEMs.

Main Functions of Automotive Applications

The main functions of Polyethylene & polypropylene products include:

  • Carrier function for adhesive allowing positioning of objects on uneven surfaces
  • Noise and Vibration absorption/deadening
  • Sealing against noise, air, water, and dust
  • Sound Reflection
  • Smooth contour
  • Soft feel
  • Cavity filling
  • Weight savings
  • Cost Saving
  • Impact protection
  • Thermal insulation

The trend towards lightweight materials combined with noise-reduction properties calls for specialized cost effective materials. XLPE foam, IXPE foam, IXPP foam are just such materials. Their unique combination of mechanical, chemical and thermal properties makes them the ideal replacement for traditional foams such as EPDM rubber, PU and PVC.

Newcean’s foam products are widely used for interior trim applications because they provide sealing against air, moisture, noise and temperature. Typical examples include: door & side panels, dashboard, headliners & ABC pillars.
