Carbon footprint

Replacing less eco-friendly components helps decarbonise vehicles, lowering environmental impact.

Design

Our versatile materials offer greater freedom of design and new possibilities for complex shapes and aesthetics.

Health and safety

The manufacture and composition of our materials contribute to a reduction in volatile organic components (VOCs).

TRANSPORTATION APPLICATIONS

Some of the solutions Low & Bonar provides for transportation and the infrastructure supporting it

Air filtration

Air filtration

As a support material for woven and non-woven filters, Colback is perfect for high-efficiency, activated carbon filtration in cabins. It also ensures low pressure drop/high pleat stiffness for air intake filters.

Car mats

Car mats

A high quality car mat should lie flat and stand up to the heavy abrasion. As a carrier Colback secures a strong tuft bind for market leading durability and stability.

Composites

Composites

EnkaSpacer, Enkafusion and Enkachannel are employed in resin transfer and infusion moulding processes used for creating complex lightweight and structural components in vehicle dashboards and other hard surfaces.

Concrete reinforcement

Concrete reinforcement

When Adfil fibres are added to the concrete essential in roads, railways or airport taxiways, cracking is reduced, surface quality rises, resistance to impact and abrasion improves and lifetime is extended.

Liquid filtration

Liquid filtration

When used as a support medium for synthetic oil and fuel filters, Colback enables pleats to be made sharper, so increasing efficiency and giving the filters a longer life.

Moulded car carpets

Moulded car carpets

Car carpets need to be shaped around difficult contours, in a way that minimises production time. Colback’s moulding range takes and keeps shape well, doesn’t deform, and is extremely hard wearing.
