Low Wear Non Woven Carpet for Protected Applications
|Publication Date:||1 February 2008|
This specification describes low-weight, non-woven carpet materials that are suitable for floor applications.
Material Description. The material is low-wear and is generally used on entry-level vehicles with special provisions for testing and usage, including mandatory floor mats, heel pads, complete protection of the ingress/egress areas and protection of the transmission tunnel areas. (See 3.2.7.)
Material Identification. The material shall be constructed using synthetic fibers, dyed and finished with an approved backing to become acceptable in color, pattern and physical properties as outlined in this specification.
Symbols. This code defines the material construction and will be assigned by the responsible department.
Typical Applications. Suitable for molded floor carpets.
Remarks. Not applicable.
Note: For requirements for vehicles without solar absorbing glass, contact the appropriate Materials Engineer. All interior materials are developed to be used in vehicles with solar glass; therefore, performance may be compromised if used in nonsolar glass vehicles.
