The acoustic performance of components for the vehicle interior such as inner dashes or carpets depends on the noise-reducing quality as well as the geometrical adaptability and fill power of their material. With Flexi-Loft, Autoneum offers a new felt-based technology that reduces product weight and allows for accurate adaptation even to complex shapes.  
Flexi-Loft technology from Autoneum Management AG, Winterthur/Switzerland, is significantly lighter, more flexible and more adaptable than standard felts. In addition, the fiber-based material made of a blend of recycled cotton and functional fibers, is versatile and outperforms current foam products in terms of sustainability.  
Thanks to the specific properties of the fibers, Flexi-Loft enables a precise adaptation to a wide variety of vehicle bodies, thereby improving the noise-insulating qualities of the respective product. Even at low weight, the product covers a wide range of material thicknesses, thus making it suitable as a decoupling material for interior components with complex shapes such as inner dashes and automotive carpets. Flexi-Loft distinguishes itself by its versatile application in combination with existing Autoneum technologies such as Hybrid-Acoustics and Prime-Light. Moreover, the material helps to reduce odor and dust inside the vehicle.  
The lightweight, fiber-based material is characterized by very good environmental performance throughout the entire product life cycle while offering the same benefits as less sustainable foam alternatives. Flexi-Loft consists of at least 50% recycled cotton fibers, and cut-offs generated during the manufacturing process are reclaimed, processed and then reused in the production of new felt blanks. Furthermore, the material is fully recyclable.
