Here at Interflex, we pride ourselves on our ever-evolving design ethos and our commitment to the sustainable manufacturing solutions that are needed for the future. So, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve developed and launched Ocean, a new recycled material. Ocean is already being successfully used in vehicles, but its scope goes far beyond the automotive industry.

What is Ocean?

Ocean is a lightweight, mouldable material made from a minimum of 75% recycled polyester, designed to efficiently reduce noise and vibration. As you’d expect given our history supplying noise, harshness and vibration solutions for the automotive industry, the product is currently being used for NVH solutions in cars, in applications such as headliners and doors.

Where else can Ocean be used?

As a high-performance acoustic absorbent material which has already attracted a lot of interest from the automotive industry, we are very excited about Ocean’s potential to branch out into providing noise and vibration solutions in other industries where weight and noise can cause issues, including rail, roadways and construction.

One of the clear advantages of using Ocean over certain other traditional NVH materials is its lightweight properties. These make it ideal for use in a wide range of industries where manufacturers are keen to reduce the weight of the products they produce using a modern, sustainable and lightweight material.

Reducing carbon footprint

As well as being manufactured from a minimum of 75% recycled polyester, Ocean is also recyclable, meaning unlike many other materials, it won’t be destined for landfill at the end of its impressive lifecycle.

As with many industries, the automotive industry is heavily reliant on imports from as far afield as Asia, so this product represents a real opportunity for manufacturers to reduce their carbon footprints as well as choosing a sustainable product.

A green vision for the future

Here at Interflex, our strategy of introducing more sustainable materials into the automotive supply chain aligns perfectly with our exciting plans to expand into new markets, which we are ideally placed to do as experts inhel converting materials for a wide range of uses. We are already expanding into the horticultural market with our innovative Mulchii™ mulch mat, and the potential Ocean has in industries where weight and noise solutions are needed is very exciting indeed.

Watch this space to find out more about the new markets we will be taking Ocean to in 2022 and beyond.
