Haartz Supplies Convertible Topping for 2014 Jaguar F-Type which Debuted at LA Auto Show

ACTON, Mass. (Nov. 29, 2012) - The Haartz Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of soft-top convertible material, will supply the convertible topping for the 2014 Jaguar F-Type Convertible. The F-Type is the first two-seat sports car released by Jaguar since the E-Type was released 50 years ago. The F-Type will made its North American Auto Show debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show taking place Nov. 30 to Dec. 9 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The material used for the F-Type's convertible topping is the Haartz SonnenlandŽA5B/DS acoustic topping. This high level acoustic topping is made with three plies, a twill weave outer layer, a rubber inner layer and a polyester lining fabric. This combination provides optimized acoustic and protective performance. Haartz will offer topping material in Jet (black), Beige, Stone Grey and Red as color options for the Jaguar F-Type.

"The acoustic top provides a quiet ride and the color options allow for combinations that make the F-Type stand out in its class," said Doug Haartz, international sales manager for Haartz. "We were pleased to be able to work with Jaguar on the F-Type and provide them with our highest quality topping."

Haartz toppings are engineered to dispel the misconceptions of soft top convertibles. Benefits of Haartz materials, including all-season driving, optimized top-down trunk space and superior acoustical and NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) performance, are on par with retractable hard tops.

A full range of customizable laminates allows Haartz to meet the strictest OEM specifications and design targets with lower-cost engineering and manufacturing compared to retractable hardtop designs. Haartz laminates give the automaker the ability to maintain the distinctive appearance of open-air vehicles, top up or down.
