Quiet Steel® Delivers a Low-Mass, Low-Cost, High-Performance NVH Solution
Quiet Steel® gives you proven NVH management without the added mass of add-on NVH solutions to help you meet today’s tougher CAFÉ standards and still deliver the quality your customers expect. Quiet Steel® components give you a total NVH solution that can dramatically reduce, or completely eliminate, the cost and weight of PCL, mastics, foams, tapes and other sound deadening materials plus the freight, handling, warehousing, assembly line stocking and installation labor they require.
Replacing the dash, cowl and wheel wells on a typical vehicle with Quiet Steel can save more than 14 pounds and nearly $16 per vehicle while putting you a step closer to meeting CAFE targets. It would take 4 to 6 mm of Liquid Applied Structural Damping (LASD) — and a 60 to 90% weight increase — to achieve the same NVH performance as a Quiet Steel component.
Quiet Steel® delivers a dramatic performance advantage to OEMs – in sound quality, weight reduction, recyclability and cost savings. With the growing demands for increased fuel efficiency and lower cost without sacrificing quality, Quiet Steel® is the right NVH solution for your next platform.
Quiet Steel is an engineered laminate that can be easily stamped, welded, e-coated and integrated into the vehicle body structure to reduce both cost and mass while improving NVH.

This results in fewer add-on acoustic treatments required to hit the desired NVH target. The MSC Quiet Steel system can save cost and mass.|
