MCA GRANTS APPROVAL TO SOUNDOWN FIRE SAFE "QUIET LCF" LIGHT WEIGHT ACOUSTIC FOAM

The MCA Structural Fire Protection Unit has granted general approval under Section 14A.6 of "The Code", for Soundown Quiet LCF, a very lightweight, highly fire resistant flexible insulation foam. This approval allows this Quiet LCF to be installed in all areas where "not readily ignitable" materials are required under "The Code". Previously, heavier fiberglass, rockwool, and ceramic fiber insulation products were the mainstays of the industry to satisfy the MCA requirements. Now Soundown Quiet LCF provides code compliance along with significant weight savings and superior thermal/acoustic performance. With the introduction of Soundown Quiet LCF, yacht builders now have a material that helps them reach their weight reduction goals while offering significant installation labor reductions in a fiber free format. The material can be fabricated in a wide range of thicknesses and sheet sizes with many finishing options. Soundown Quite LCF is already in widespread use, with current projects underway including: a 50m COGAG Motor Yacht, a 30m Fast Diesel Yacht, 3 Fast Sail Yachts between 30m and 40m, and a 41m J-Boat Sail Racer. For more information about this product please contact Soundown Corporation, 17 Lime Street #1, Marblehead, MA 01945 USA. Phone 781.631.9611.
