Acoustic Barrier Composites Insulation
Soundown offers a range of barrier composite insulation materials that increase the transmission loss of panels or walls. These composites feature a mass barrier floated in a composite of foam, fiberglass, or mineral wool and finished with a range of durable vapor barrier facings.
Soundown’s Vinyl/Foam composite insulation (IVF) is designed to reduce airborne noise that radiates from engines, and other machinery. The standard composite consists of a layer of TuffMass loaded vinyl sandwiched between two layers of fire retardant, polyether foam and protected by a vapor barrier facing. Soundown composites are produced specifically for attenuation of sounds from machines such as engines, generators, pumps, and other equipment which may have significant base and mid-range frequency components. Our standard construction centers the acoustic vinyl between equal thicknesses of foam, front and back to optimizes the mid and bass frequency sound isolation. Where high frequency noises are of concern Soundown can fabricate specialized composites.
Soundown’s QuietLag, acoustic pipe and duct wrap material consists of a fiberglass decoupling layer and TuffMass barrier with reinforced facing. This product is used in wrapping of pipe and ducts to reduce breakthrough noise from the fluid, gas or media travelling through the system. Common applications include plumbing, HVAC, and material handling systems.
