Market Segment Manager Automotive

Andrew Christie is the Market Segment Manager responsible for the Automotive Market at Avery Dennison Performance Tapes. He has introduced many innovative solutions to the market including light weight acoustical materials and sustainable seat fabrics. His commitment to the industry continues with delivering pressure sensitive adhesives that address the challenges facing the automotive industry today.

Avery Dennison offers tape products designed to help vehicle engineers address and solve buzz, squeak and rattle (BSR) issues throughout a vehicle. Our products meet many OEM specifications.

Rising importance of vibration damping material

Whereas BSR was once a concern primarily in the luxury car space, today’s consumers expect even modestly-priced cars, SUVs and small trucks to deliver a quiet ride. As a result, OEMs are raising acoustical standards throughout their fleets.

This trend is complicated by the increasing presence of electric vehicles (EV). EV engineers are quickly discovering the absence of an internal combustion engine eliminates a significant source of white noise that had been useful for masking unwanted sound and vibration.

A variety of tape solutions for BSR

Flock and felt tapes have thus become a go-to solution for many BSR engineers, and Avery Dennison offers a variety of solutions for these applications.

Engineers can choose from a range of high-performance adhesives that are effective across the spectrum of interior and exterior substrates found in modern vehicles, including LSE components. And our adhesives meet many OEM low VOC specifications.
