Moldable and Resistent
Nonwoven is used for various molded components in cars and boats.
Moldable for interior components
Needle punched felt can be easily molded with the help of heat to fit different parts in cars and boats (automotive). For example, needle punched felt is usually used in the ceilings, interior walls and the luggage compartment of cars – the material can be clad in, for example, fabric or leather. In boats, fiberglass is used for both interior and exterior components.
Protection of soft parts
Soft nonwoven materials, like needle punched felt and spunbond, are used in soft interior components of boats and cars (like seats) to cover the springs and as a dust cover.
Nonwoven can be found in most cars and boats. It is really an excellent material that can be molded and then clad in fabric or leather.
