QuietLeigh recycled fibers help reduce noise… and waste

Mar '11
Without making a lot of noise about it, some automotive suppliers have embraced sustainability for years by producing sound-attenuating components with shoddy made by Leigh Fibers from recycled denim and other textile materials.

QuietLeigh recycled fibers have become the industry standard for acoustical padding, contributing to quieter rides while helping to keep tons of old jeans out of landfills.

Leigh custom-blends QuietLeigh fibers to suit suppliers' production processes and components, typically floors, doors, speaker enclosures, closeout panels, and package trays. They can help customers meet automotive standards and OEM specifications for sound deadening and flame retardancy.

Leigh Fibers, North America's only ISO-certified fiber reprocessor, can also help customers recycle the scrap from their production and turn it into material they or another company can reuse.

QuietLeigh recycled fibers are also finding a home in construction, where custom blends of natural fibers are used in ceiling tile. Other blends show promise as cost-effective alternatives to traditional wall and ceiling insulation materials. As in automotive applications, the fibers are custom-blended to meet customers' needs.

In addition to helping manufacturers meet cost, performance and sustainability targets, QuietLeigh fibers help reduce the thousands of tons of denim and other textile waste that end up in landfills each year. They also appeal to the growing consumer preference for eco-friendly products.

Leigh Fibers, North America's leading reprocessor of fiber and textile by-products, has diverted some 14 billion pounds of waste from landfills throughout its 99-year history and turned it into useful material.
