EconCore, a supplier of honeycomb sandwich materials, has signed a license agreement with a textile manufacturer in North America, focusing on lightweight automotive interior panels and parts.

The manufacturer of a variety of needle punched nonwoven products will integrate the production of EconCore’s thermoplastic honeycomb panels with in-line lamination of nonwovens and carpets. This will allow it to improve its rigid lightweight product to meet the needs of automotive applications.
