Do you need to put an end to noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH)? Look no further than JBC Technologies. As a large volume die cutter of acoustical, thermal, and electrical insulation, JBC is a one-stop solution for high-volume OEM insulation requirements. We can also service one-off custom cut needs using our digital die cutting capability. In addition, JBC can produce multilayered, custom-laminated insulation including aluminum foil or peel-and-stick adhesive.


Lightweight, compressible, and made of polypropylene non-woven sound-absorbing fibers, synthetic blankets are extremely effective in reducing noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) in appliance, automotive interior, and HVAC applications. Most are hydrophobic and resist moisture and bacterial growth.

Some of the more common synthetic blankets we die cut at JBC include 3M™ Thinsulate™ Acoustic Insulation products, Aim Fiber’s AutoZorb®, and Aim Fiber’s Polyzorb®.

Common automotive OEM applications:

  • instrument panels
  • door panels
  • liftgates
  • instrument panels
  • pillars
  • package trays
  • headliners
  • carpet areas
  • and more

JBC’s TABshield patch series is designed to provide superior thermal and acoustic performance It is easy-to-install, conformable to most shapes, and an ideal solution for a variety of targeted noise and heat suppression applications. Available in sheets, rolls, or die-cut to your specification, TABshield patches may also be customized with pull tabs for easier liner removal. Foil options include multiple thicknesses, smooth or embossed finishes, scrim reinforcement, and even perforated aluminum to improve acoustical performance for automotive heat shielding applications. It is also ideal in many appliance applications where both thermal and acoustical insulation are needed.

Common applications include targeted thermal and acoustical protection for:

  • engine shields
  • tunnel insulators
  • dash insulators
  • hood insulators
  • engine compartments
  • exhaust
  • shields
  • tunnel shields
  • marine heat shields
  • HVAC
  • and more

Another option for Automotive OEMs looking to reduce NVH is the Rogers Corporation’s family of PORON® polyurethane vibration management foams. These provide good vibration and damping and impact absorption. PORON® Polyurethane Foams are easily die cut, flame-retardant, and come in a variety of firmnesses and thicknesses to meet the needs of multiple applications – from automotive fuel tank isolator pads to dampers for shock, vibration, noise and impact, camera window gaskets, and enclosure gaskets. View Rogers’ Product properties guide here.

Common applications include:

  • vibration dampening
  • sound dampening
  • sealing
  • gasketing
  • cushioning
  • gap filling
