Performance is critical for automotives – but so is comfort. A noisy vehicle isn’t just annoying – it can be dangerously distracting for the operator. This type of noise is called NVH, and can be mitigated with the use of automotive NVH foam.
What is NVH?
Noise, vibration, and harshness is a term used to determine how much noise vehicles emit while they’re running. NVH can be internal and heard/felt by people in the cabin as well as external where it’s heard/felt by people outside the vehicle.

Automotive NVH Foam
Automotive NVH foam refers to foam materials that are designed to mitigate the effects of NVH. NVH in automotives generally comes from the mechanical and electrical systems within the vehicle, which are necessary operations. When creating a solution to reduce the sound produced by these systems, it’s critical to ensure that it won’t interfere with the performance of the vehicle.
Die-cut flexible material solutions – includingg foam – are our recommended solution. These materials can be designed with extreme precision so they fit snugly while still remaining flexible, so as to allow for daily use without become ineffective.
Industrial Custom Products provides custom NVH solutions, including the most common parts:
- Gaskets and gasket covers
- Engine covers
- Acoustic insulation
- Thermal insulation
- NVH reduction panels
- Seat supports
