With a key strategic thrust targeting quiet and clean mobility by developing new insulation applications, Porcher Industries’ range of textiles will meet the demands and requirements of the automotive, aerospace and other transport sectors by delivering unsurpassed levels of thermal and acoustical management.
Produced from 100 per cent non-respirable fibres, the binder free nonwovens are safe to handle and can be tailored to provide application specific thermal insulation and heat shields at temperatures ranging from 650°C to 1150°C (1200°F to 2100°F).
Porcher Industries is able to deliver its Techmat, SilcoSoft and ThermoShield materials in a wide range of formats from roll goods, flat or formed shapes through to sub-assemblies and finished parts that combine metallic layers with their insulation materials.
Porcher Industries’ thermal and acoustical insulation solutions are technical textiles that blend chemistry and fibre processing technology to produce a powerful range of nonwoven and glass mat thermoplastics (GMT) materials that can be tailored to a customer’s specific acoustical and thermal insulation requirements.
In addition, Andreas Stoeferle, technical support engineer, EMEA, Porcher Industries, will present a detailed view of the group’s expertise in high performance insulations, their global reach, products and delivery formats on the opening day of the conference.
“As one of the leading manufacturers of specialist technical textiles within the automotive sector, we have responded to demand and placed significant development time and resource into developing our range of thermal and acoustical material solutions for automotive and aerospace,” said Pierre-Yves Quéfélec, global aerospace & automotive BU head.
As a major actor in high performance technical textiles and composites, Porcher Industries is active in five key markets: aerospace and defense, automotive, building, industrial and electronics, sport and leisure. Present in Europe, China, the United States, Brazil and Russia, the group employs 2,250 staff and has a turnover of €320 million.
