Haartz Soft-Top Material Featured on the New BMW 2-Series Convertible

Acton, Mass. (October 16, 2014) - BMW has unveiled its new 2-Series Convertible which features Haartz soft-top material. This new model supersedes the BMW 1-Series Convertible, which sold more than 130,000 cars globally.

Depending on the interior paint and color schemes selected, consumers have the option of the Haartz Sonnenland A5B/DS-HT or Haartz Sonnenland A5B/DS soft convertible topping.

The Haartz Sonnenland A5B/DS-HT is a high-level acoustic grade topping. This material is a design-enhanced three-ply topping with color contrasting acrylic and polyester facing, rubber inner layer and polyester dobby backing.  The top is available in black/silver high-tech weave and brown/silver high-tech weave.

Haartz Sonnenland A5B/DS high level performance acoustically enhanced three-ply topping made of fabric laminate material. The top uses acrylic twill weave facing, rubber inner-layer and polyester dobby backing which comes in the color black.

“Adding additional lining to the soft-top’s skin helped improve acoustic comfort,” said Matt Williams, director of business development for the Haartz Corporation. “Because of the 4dB noise reduction and improved aerodynamics it makes for a quieter and more enjoyable ride year round.”

The new BMW 2-Series soft-top convertible will make its North American debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show next month and launches in February 2015.
