Solutions for NVH:

BASF products can ideally fulfill the rising demand for soundproofing in car construction. The lightweight Basotect® foam is used for sound insulation in the engine hood cover because of its outstanding acoustic performance, high heat resistance, high fire safety, favorable fogging behavior and chemical resistance.

Elastic foams made with Elastoflex® protect against the heat and noise of the engine compartment. They are resistant to high temperatures and reduce unpleasant vibrations.

Soundproofing Basotect – Silence under the hood

Passenger comfort and driving dynamics play a crucial role in the success of a car. BASF products for the chassis offer maximum driving comfort, sportiness and safety.
