Acoustic Melamine Foam®
Sound absorption, fire resistance, thermal insulation or abrasiveness: Acoustic Melamine Foam® combines many requirements for high-performance foam in one product. In construction and industrial applications, in the automotive and transportation sectors, but also in consumer applications, Acoustic Melamine Foam® provides a great variety of options.
- High sound absorption capacity
- Good thermal insulation properties
- Low weight
- Flame resistance – without the addition of flame retardants
- Constant physical properties over a wide temperature range
Acoustic Melamine Foam® for ideal sound absorption and design in offices, restaurants and meeting rooms
Acoustic Melamine Foam® ensures optimal room acoustics: Particularly in noisy rooms like large offices or call centers, it is important to pay special attention to noise absorption. Disruptive noise can make it difficult for employees to concentrate. And when walls, ceilings, and floors are also hard surfaces that reflect sound, the resulting high noise level can make it impossible for people to work efficiently.
The same is true for restaurants: A pleasant and engaging atmosphere is of key importance here. Noise has a negative impact on how guests feel, which is why sound insulation requires particular attention. The challenge is to find the right material to meet the perfect design.
Acoustic Melamine Foam® can meet all these demands for sound absorption in offices and restaurants: It is versatile, flame-retardant and light weight – and it can fit in with any architectural features, whether used as ceiling tiles, hanging baffles, wall-mounted absorbers, or room dividers.
Acoustic Melamine Foam®'s open-cell surface guarantees that sound waves are not reflected as an echo but can penetrate the cell structure unhindered. The sound energy is reduced in the cell structure, giving Acoustic Melamine Foam® an excellent sound absorption capacity. At low frequencies, improved sound can be achieved by adding layers of a heavier material for example.
Thanks to Acoustic Melamine Foam®'s highly cross-linked structure, it is resistant to all organic solvents. When it comes to acids and alkalis, the resistance has to be checked in concrete application cases since the temperature, the exposure time and the concentration all have a great deal of influence on the resistance of the foam to these media.
Acoustic Melamine Foam® meets the most important international fire safety standards. Acoustic Melamine Foam®'s long-term resistance to high temperatures and excellent fire characteristics are based on the melamine resin used. The high nitrogen content of the resin is responsible for the extremely flameresistant property of the foam without the need to use fire retardants.
Acoustic Melamine Foam® is a thermoset, and thus, in the event of a fire, the material does not melt or produce burning droplets when it comes into contact with flames. The foam simply chars and produces a small amount of smoke, and there is no afterglow, making Acoustic Melamine Foam® particularly suitable for applications with high fire safety requirements. In tests on the fire characteristics required to meet national and international standards, Acoustic Melamine Foam® achieves the highest classification possible for organic materials.
Acoustic Melamine Foam® is produced without using halogenated hydrocarbons, flame retardants and/or toxic heavy metals. Acoustic Melamine Foam® does not contaminate water. The supplied product is free of blowing agents and is not subject to labeling requirements under the German hazardous material regulations.
Solutions with Acoustic Melamine Foam® reduce the weight of the components, thus contributing to energy savings and to a reduction in emissions in transportation applications.
The excellent cleaning effect is achieved without the need for any other chemical cleaning agents. Thanks to the product’s property profile, Acoustic Melamine Foam® contributes to efficient energy utilization and to improving the well-being of people in buildings and vehicles.
