Automotive

Seating

Seat assembly with VELCRO® Brand fasteners is more cost-effective than
with ring-and-wire or adhesives. They also reduce scrap and rework,
while giving you more design flexibility. That's why hook-and-loop is so
widely used to secure seat trim covers and, increasingly, for armrests
and headrests, too.

Uses

  • Trim Cover Attachment
  • Non-woven Foam Inserts
  • Trim Cover close-offs

Electrical Systems

Automotive engineers estimate that some 60 percent of all warranty
returns involve electrical system problems. With electrical/electronic
distribution systems (EEDS) handling more vehicle functions (and more
complex functions) all the time, they need more protection than ever.

Uses

  • Temporary and permanent protective covers
  • Wire and cable management straps
  • Temporary straps and wraps for shipping and handling protection

Headliners

Headliners can be fastened easily and quickly with VELCRO® Brand touch
fasteners and foam laminates. These cost-effective, out-of-sight
fasteners cut assembly time, fill the space between headliner and roof,
and help muffle noise from squeaks, rattles and vibration.

Uses

  • Gap Fillers and Spacers
  • Sunroof Reinforcement
  • Hot Melt Elimination in headliner assembly
