AUTOMOTIVE SEATS

MADE WITH CONWED NETTING

LIGHTWEIGHT REINFORCEMENT FOR ENHANCED SAFETY AND COMFORT

THE CHALLENGE

A top car seat manufacturer was developing new seats for a leading automotive customer.  The request for proposal specified lightweight car seats with seamless effect in comfort and safety.  Our customer had tried to reduce other seat components such as foam with mild success.  By decreasing foam density, overall car seat weight was decreased, but the problem remained because tensile strength and recovery properties were below desired targets.

CONWED SOLUTION

Our European team was called into action. Through ongoing research and testing, we recommended a specialty netting configuration that delivered superior tensile strength and recovery properties, yet kept overall weight within target.  How?  Our lightweight reinforcement and adhesive features helped form a composite with lower density car seat foam without significantly affecting target weight, strength, recovery or performance.
