Demands on automobiles are developing just as quickly as mobility itself. Comfort, aesthetics, visual and acoustic features are meanwhile significant indicators of the perception of quality.
Everything bright, wide and fluent
Nowadays car interiors are designed increasingly brighter to give the drivers a feeling of spaciousness and purity. Likewise, all components must flow into each other and no interruptions may disturb the clean lines.
For the technicians of the supplying component manufacturers this means: less gap dimension with more sensitive materials and thus a higher risk of developing squeaks and creaks with reduced choice of lubricants to remedy them, because easily migrating or coloured lubricants and coatings are no alternatives. The risk of soiling a visually sensitive part of the vehicle interior is too high.
New mobility: Everything clean, safe and silent
Not only since electric vehicles have become widely established, driving noises in the interior have more and more decreased. Even before the “E-era” started, improved engine sealing and tyres with less rolling noise have already reduced the noise level in the vehicle. Electric vehicles, however, take this development to quite a new level. The elimination of engine noise and narrower tyres with less rolling resistance make noise inside the vehicle more noticeable.
Increased requirements with reduced solution options
The current design trends relating to vehicle interiors limit the choice of lubricants or coatings for sustainable and efficient elimination of disturbing noise inside the car. Suitable products must be colourless and may not migrate in order to prevent soiling the sensitive light-coloured materials. They must also be compatible with more and more of the various materials used. In the end, however, they must above all do one thing: effectively and sustainably prevent disturbing noise.
