DETROIT, Jan. 19 /CNW/ -- The Woodbridge Group introduces StrataLiner
NET(TM) and StrataLiner NXT(TM) advanced automotive headliner solutions.
Domenic Sinopoli, Stratas Headliner Business Unit Director, The Woodbridge
Group states, "StrataLiner NET(TM) offers better environmental stability for
the finished headliner assembly, improved acoustics and up to 40% weight
savings over competing headliner composite board materials. This breakthrough
innovation has paved the way for StrataLiner NXT(TM), which offers the same
performance enhancements in a smaller package space. StrataLiner NXT(TM) now
offers a cost competitive alternative to polypropylene and fiberglass
composites at equal thickness, with improved forming characteristics and with
the superior acoustical performance polyurethane solutions can provide.
Together, StrataLiner NET(TM) and StrataLiner NXT(TM) provide designers new
opportunities to value engineer the entire overhead system."
This headliner innovation is made possible through Woodbridge's recently
announced GreenLite(TM) low mass technology. The GreenLite(TM) environmental
initiative, offers the same quality and performance for automotive
polyurethane foam components, at a substantially lower weight. This technology
responds to the industry's most pressing challenges, including improved fuel
efficiency. GreenLite(TM) low mass solutions are all about weight savings that
will not sacrifice product performance, while offering customers cost savings
opportunities in a range of applications.
The Stratas(TM) component portfolio offers several headliner system
advantages including; significant weight reduction, thinner cross-sections,
superior design flexibility, enhanced surface quality, improved acoustics,
better side curtain air bag compatibility and system cost savings. Woodbridge
offers the Stratas(TM) component portfolio as a complete overhead system
solution, or as individual components, to best suit customer requirements. The
family of headliner products offer; StrataShell(TM) formed headliner shells,
StrataLiner(TM) composite boards, StrataCore(TM) substrate foams, and
