Leading Supplier Of Technical Acoustic Foams

We understand no one size fits all when it comes to sound control and room aesthetic, that’s why we have invested in “cutting” edge technology and offer inhouse foam conversion services. Our conversion capabilities include CNC profiling, Egg Box profiling, block slitting and bandsaw conversion. We are able to manufacture a wide range of acoustic foam product to help battle high, low and mid frequency issues.

MTech – BASOTECT Melamine Foam

Mtech melamine foam “Basotect” is a perfect acoustic solution for the architectural acoustics industry due to its high sound absorption, fire resistance and thermal properties.

Mtech is an open-pore melamine foam (light grey or white) which ensures pleasant room acoustics, even when retrofitted. Mtech can be used in it’s ‘raw’ state or covered using a variety of facings, it can even be directly printed onto or painted. These lightweight absorbers allow large-scale, free-floating elements to be implemented into your projects, offering an attractive room design.

Benefits:

High sound absorption capacity
Lightweight – (~ 9kg/m³)
Easy to work with
Design freedom
Low flammability without additional
Flame retardants
Combines dimensional stability and flexibility
High light reflectance
High colour stability
Resistant to static charging
No fibres

Basotect® is just the thing when optimal room acoustics are required, and people need to be heard clearly. Particularly in very noisy rooms, like large offices or call centres, it is important to pay special attention to noise absorption.

Disruptive noise sources such as ringing phones, colleagues’ conversations, or noise from office equipment can make it really 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. Thanks to its versatility and light weight, Basotect® can fit in with any architectural features – whether used as ceiling tiles, hanging baffles, wall-mounted absorbers, or room dividers.

Basotect® is ideally suited to use in wall-mounted absorbers. The melamine resin foam can also be printed or covered with other material without sacrificing precision or colour reliability. This can help disguise its function as an absorber of sound and turn it into a decorative feature.

Ceiling tiles and suspended baffles are often the most discreet form of Basotect® when used as sound absorbers. In unobtrusive colours or shapes, they contribute to a pleasant workplace atmosphere without diverting attention from more important things. That said, they can also be used – quite deliberately – as a centrepiece or to inject a dash of colour to a room and thereby lighten the atmosphere.

Given how easy it is to work with and the tremendous freedom it allows designers, Basotect® is really versatile. Particularly when shaped into nodules or pyramids, Basotect® is excellent for sound absorption in medium and high frequency ranges (500 to 5,000 Hz). For lower frequencies, the melamine resin foam can be combined with materials such as wood, plaster, metal, or even plastic.

FireTech – Carpenters Fireseal

FireTech Fireseal is a Class 0 acoustic foam perfect for low frequency issues. The carbonated PU foam achieves the highest possible fire rating for a flexible acoustic foam and is commonly used in the construction phase of buildings.

Tech Materials can supply a range of sheet sizes, profiles and self-adhesive options. We can also laminate acoustic barriers to produce the perfect fire safe soundproofing products.

Block Size: 1200mm x 2000mm x 100mm

Fire Certificates

BS 476 Part 6 & Part 7 (Class “0”)
EN 13501-1 Euro Class B-s1,d0
UL94 94-V-0

FireTech is a chemically inert product that will not dust or migrate, even when subjected to high-velocity airflows. Tested at 10000 fpm for 4 hours.

ASTM C1071-05 12.7 Pass

FireTech is impregnated with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal additives making it resistant to most bacteria and fungus.

ASTM D-2020-92 Mildew (Fungus) Resistance

FireTech also has the ability to act as a membrane absorber across the full frequency spectrum when specified with the correct material thickness & choice of facing. High mass ensures FireTech gives excellent damping performance when applied to rigid substrates, greatly improving sound breakout.

FiteTech is used by many industries including Heating & Ventilation (HVAC), Marine acoustics, Original Equipment
Manufacturers (OEM) and the Construction industry.

Applications include:

Cinema Wall linings
Soundproofing products
Window reveal liners
Mullion & Transom acoustic inserts
Acoustic void closures for tops of walls
Acoustic void barriers for suspended ceiling
Firebats
