Abstract: The application of poly (lactic acid) [PLA] based fabric for automotive interior application has been studied. It is observed that the PLA fabric meets almost all performance specifications formulated by an original equipment manufacturer, except for flammability and abrasion resistance. The performance of PLA fabric has also been compared with a polyester (PET) automotive fabric and it is found that the PLA fabric often perform equally or better in some properties than PET fabric in all performance parameters, except for abrasion resistance and flammability.
