ACT supply ‘NVH’ components to help our customers optimise noise, vibration and harshness.

We have installed capacity and can utilise a range of processes including;

  • Die-cutting
  • Heat-sealing
  • Welding
  • Laminating

Materials we use are dependent on our customers’ exacting requirements, but often our experience means we can recommend alternatives to the vehicle manufacturers, to ensure value for money is optimised. Materials we can supply include;

  • Heavy layer
  • Wadding
  • Proprietary material such as Thinsulate™ and Acculite™

We convert material and supply finished components both as a Tier 1 and a Tier 2. NVH parts can be supplied as standalone parts or assembled to injection mouldings, compression-moulded panels or other substrates, using various assembly techniques such as heat-staking. If required, NVH parts can be supplied with self-adhesive tape, to be fitted to other components by our customers.

We can offer a make-to-print service, or take on the engineering development ourselves. Our engineering and project management teams control the project from beginning to end, working with external audio validation experts and UKAS-accredited test houses as necessary,

Typical applications of our NVH components are;

  • Under-bonnet
  • Interior trim
  • Wheelarch
  • Floors
  • Bulkhead
