Preformed acoustic inserts

Owens Corning’s preformed acoustic inserts for automotive mufflers are part of the company’s Silentex noise control solutions produced using its patented Advantex glass. The inserts offer noise reduction and can withstand the increasing temperatures of low-emission exhaust systems. According to the company, with the preformed inserts there is no bag to burn off. Advantex glass is more energy efficient than traditional E-glass, which results in less demand for fossil fuel and lower emissions, claims the company. This is the first time Owens Corning has integrated preform production in a glass reinforcements plant.
