After four years of collaboration on various issues specific to Honda, Hutchinson will equip four of the Japanese brand’s vehicles.
Hutchinson has won several new contracts by providing an effective answer to the challenges faced by the brand. Honda had identified major stumbling blocks for which Hutchinson was able to find and develop appropriate solutions; this research and development phase began in May 2015. It thus improved the acoustic performance of the fixed window seals and the glass run channels, together with the performance of the outside sealing strips in the presence of condensation. Four Honda and Acura cars are thus going to be equipped with Hutchinson sealing products. The launching of these models will be spread out between 2019 and 2021. These solutions are also applicable to other manufacturers.
