More complex cars, more noise sources

Buzz, Squeak, and Rattle (BSR) is a major source of undesired noises in the automotive and transportation industry. Today’s consumers expect all cars and passenger vehicles to ensure a quiet and comfortable journey. Reducing engine, wind, and road noise has been a rising priority for most OEMs, resulting in stricter acoustical standards.

Hybrid and electrical vehicles (EVs) accelerated the trend even further: the lack of an internal combustion process eliminates a significant source of white noise that used to conceal unwanted sounds and vibrations. 

Our BSR assortment of low VOC PET fleece, cloth, and PE tapes provides engineers with a wide range of products, effective across the spectrum of interior and exterior substrates typically found in modern vehicles, including LSE components and 3D geometries.
