Microtex is the first choice in lightweight, acoustic absorption material for high temperature automotive exhaust systems.
Exhaust gas temperatures and pressures cause major durability problems for conventional acoustic absorption materials. Those demands are getting tougher as gas temperatures and pressures are boosted to improve catalytic conversion performance.
A diffusion-bonded composite of lightweight stainless steel faceplates and a porous steel fibrous core.
Together these materials offer a combination of advantages unlike any other composite, steel or metal currently available - essentially a self-reinforced composite (SRC).
The faceplates and core can be modelled and adjusted to give different weight, strength, energy absorption and acoustic properties. read more
