Nonwoven structure with vertically oriented fibers of V-Lap™ enables V-Wave™ to perform every bit as well as conventional soundproof material, yet weighs only half as much. V-Lap™ is also an environmentally friendly because it is made with recycled polyester.
As environmental regulations become increasingly strict worldwide, there are growing demands for solutions that help to improve vehicle fuel efficiency, including weight reduction. Teijin and Hayashi Telempu are also using V-Lap™ and V-Wave™ to develop other lightweight sound-absorption auto parts, such as for ceilings and doors.
V-Lap™ and V-Wave™ are mutually produced in contiguous factories located in Gifu Prefecture, Japan.
