Quiet Aluminum is designed for mass conscious stamped aluminum applications while eliminating the need for add-on NVH treatments to eliminate panel resonances or dampening. The use of an engineered viscoelastic layer, laminated between two sheets of aluminum, affords this dampening solution the opportunity to meet application-specific goals such as noise reductions, operating temperature, stiffness and operating environment needs.
Quiet Aluminum is supplied as continuous coil or blanked sheets with a variety of coatings including but not limited to lubricants and coated coil pretreatments.
A primary challenge with Automotive NVH technologies is mass. Quiet Aluminum solves this problem by offering a weight-sensitive dampening application for the automotive industry, including electric vehicles, fuel cell powered vehicles and heavy trucks.
Any component involving seat storage tubs, package trays, back panels, wheelhouses, front and mid-floor pans, cowl plenums and dash panels are all excellent candidates for Material Sciences Corporation’s Quiet Aluminum.
