Twingo City Car from Renault Features Haartz Convertible Topping Material

Acton, Mass. (September 18, 2014) More than 20 years since the original rolled off the assembly line, Renault reintroduced its popular city car, the Twingo. This generation features a folding roof system with material supplied by The Haartz Corporation.

The material is Haartz’ Landmark™ II, which is comprised of an acrylic square weave facing, urethane elastomer inner layer and polyester/cotton backing. It is available in black.

“The Landmark is a great choice for the Twingo,” said Matt Williams, director of business development for the Haartz Corporation. “It is durable for the variations in weather and air quality in an urban environment, provides a dimensionally stable fit for low profile folding roofs, and is cost effective for the manufacturer.”

The topping material for the Twingo is produced in Haartz’ Acton, Massachusetts facility.

Haartz topping materials can be customized to meet OEM specifications and design targets while maintaining superior acoustical and NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) performance and optimized trunk space when the top is down.
