SBM5 Monolayer Sound Barrier Mat has excellent sound insulating qualities. SBM5 can be used as a sole sound barrier layer, or as part of a multilayer composite with other materials such as sound absorbing foam and carpet.
Normally fixed to original panels of metal, wood and plastics etc. this mat is particularly effective at improving the sound insulation value of lightweight structures. Particularly useful for overlaying timber floors to seal joints and other gaps.
Two to three layers can be used on hard floors which will dramatically reduce noise nuisance penetrating the joints of existing flooring.
It is particularly effective as a decoupling layer between plasterboard on ceilings and studwork partitions and will often give up to a 100% improvement in noise reduction including those annoying low frequencies.
The Barrier Mat consists of a high density mineral loaded thermoplastic polymer plasticised with phthalate esters.
