TENOWO, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of nonwovens, has expanded its technology and production portfolio with the addition of another product group: ‘Zetaloft+, a sustainable and recyclable nonwoven with innovative properties for a variety of applications in the automotive sector and other segments of industry.

The trend

‘Sustainability’ is a buzzword that is of great importance, especially in the automotive industry, due to the transformation currently under way. This is a trend to which we intend to and will contribute. New and extended product characteristics, recyclability, environmental awareness and the conservation of resources are the focus of attention. Working alongside our customers and partners, we have succeeded in developing genuine added value to this new generation of products.

The product

Zetaloft+ is a homopolymeric, voluminous and recyclable nonwoven with new acoustic properties. Interesting additional functions can be achieved in the end product thanks to the special arrangement of the fibers and possible thermo-mechanical after-treatments. Depending on the application, foams and other core materials are also replaced. Zetaloft+ is used in different widths and weights of up to 1400 g/m².


Applications and properties

  • Acoustic damping and insulation for noise encapsulation of drive engines and battery components
  • Temperature-stable and flame-retardant for different fire classes, where necessary also media-repellent relative to different liquids
  • Basic component for foam substitute in vehicle interiors and exteriors (roof liner, seat, underbody constructions and door side panels)
  • Aid for use in the production of car seats
  • Core material for hybrid CFRP/GRP add-on structures as a replacement for heavyweight foams
