Woodbridge WhisperTech™ Polyurethane
Foam Now Meets UL-94 V0 Rated Flammability
Requirements for NVH Engine Bay Applications
PR Newswire
DETROIT, June 14, 2012
DETROIT, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Woodbridge is pleased to announce the
development of an industry leading flame retardant foam, for a range of under-hood
acoustical and thermal insulating applications, to meet increasingly stringent OEM needs.
This new material represents a significant breakthrough in flammability performance for
Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) solutions, offering enhanced sound absorption and
transmission loss properties, versus competing materials including metals and engineered
fibres.
WhisperTech™ V0 foams now provide excellent engine-bay sound management
capabilities, while exceeding industry regulations for flammability of polymeric materials.
WhisperTech™ UL-94 V0 rated foams self extinguish, once exposed to an open flame, in
both horizontal and vertical test protocols. This formulation can also be specifically
engineered to meet specifications including; Coloring including black, Heat Aging,
Humidity Aging and No-Drip performance.
WhisperTech™ foams can be fabricated in mechanically cut sheets, or molded into
custom fit complex geometries, to meet exacting levels of acoustical performance.
Domenic Sinopoli, Executive Director of Sales and General Manager StrataForm™, The
Woodbridge Group®, states "WhisperTech™ UL-94 V0 rated, low density flexible urethane
formulations are used to balance cost and NVH performance requirements, for Hood
Liners and Dash Insulators. This solution also offers excellent thermoforming
performance, using a variety of face materials to optimize the finished product."
Pejman Hashemi, WhisperTech™ NVH Solutions Product Manager, The Woodbridge
Group®, notes "These extreme flame retardant formulations, are available for a wide
range of molded components in contact with the engine such as: Beauty Covers and
various acoustical insulators for Manifolds, Valve and Cam Covers, Fuel Rails, Air Intakes
and Pumps. Additionally, these products can integrate fasteners and mounting brackets
for ease of assembly."
Woodbridge continues to engineer and deliver innovative acoustical and thermal solutions
globally, to meet exacting levels of acoustical and thermal performance. WhisperTech™
V0 foams are available in a wide range of density, hardness and thickness, to optimize
cost and performance. WhisperTech™ V0 products are offered in sheet stock and molded
components, and are certified to meet today's most stringent flammability specifications.
The Woodbridge Group® and its partners in The World Polyurethane Alliance™ operate
60 facilities in 18 countries, as global leaders in the development and production of
polyurethane and expanded polypropylene products. Automotive applications include
components for seating, structural support, interior soft trim products, headliner systems,
cargo management solutions, and engineered products for occupant protection and
acoustical management. Woodbridge also offers contract assembly and sequencing and
supply chain management, as well as a full range of value added services including
