Thinsulate™

Thinsulate™ is a non-woven mat with excellent sound absorbing properties useful in many automotive applications in:

  • Vehicle cabins
  • Headliners
  • Trim panels
  • Inside door panels
  • Instrument panels
  • Pillar trim and stuffers
  • Package trays
  • Luggage compartment interiors
  • Wheel arch liners

 

It is compressible, non-linting, lightweight, and can be easily die-cut. A polyolefin scrim on one side protects the fibers. It also has been surface treated on both sides to provide better attachment of the scrim and better abrasion resistance of the fiber. Thomco can help with converted die-cut Thinsulate™ parts that include adhesive.
