3M AU2002 Thinsulate Automotive Acoustic Insulation

3M AU2002 Thinsulate

3M Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) Product

3M™ Thinsulate Acoustic Insulation gives automotive manufacturers new freedom to specify designs and applications.

3M noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) products provide a range of sound absorption and damping benefits. 3M AU2002 Thinsulate is a non-woven mat with excellent sound absorbing properties useful in many automotive interior applications, for example inside door panels, instrument panels, pillar stuffers, and package trays. It is compressible, non-linting, lightweight, and can be easily die-cut.

  • Quieter cars. 3M Thinsulate provides highly efficient acoustic absorption, particularly in the middle- to high-frequency ranges.
  • Lighter cars. 3M Thinsulate products are made from lightweight polyester and polypropylene non-woven fibres.
  • Reduced complexity. With 3M Thinsulate, you can work with simple, rectangular pieces. No need for complicated shapes or costly
  • Stress-free assembly. 3M NVH Automotive materials are conformable with low memory forces. This enables a stress-free mounting process and integration into larger components.
  • Great Design. Designed for a wide variety of acoustic applications including under engine components and covers, fender liners and trunk liners. Constructed with a reinforced surface on both sides to meet both strength and aesthetic requirements

The web is composed of 35% polyester staple fibres, and 65% polypropylene fibres. The polypropylene fibres are extremely fine, producing the high-energy absorption characteristic with the low weight. The polyester fibres are added to strengthen the web.

The black scrim attached to both sides is a 100% polypropylene non-woven fabric.

Applications

APPLICATION DESCRIPTION:

Suitable for application in vehicle cabin and luggage compartment interiors, especially vertical surfaces. As the material compresses easily, it is not recommended for applications under the carpet (or other flooring) but its lightweight makes it ideal for other horizontal applications like combining with headliners for example.

APPLICATION NOTES:

Attaching to trim panels is recommended, preferably using ultrasonic or heat spot welding, but adhesives (transfer tapes or hot melt) may also be used. Not recommended for applications where temperatures will be above 90°C.purpose and suitable for the user’s method of application. As the fibers are hydrophobic, this material will not absorb water. Therefore the risk of mildew and odors developing are minimal allowing this product to be used in humid or moist conditions.
