Noise Control Barrier Material

This flexible composite combines the sound-absorbing properties of open-cell polyurethane foam and the noise barrier capabilities of high-density PVC vinyl sheeting. The 3/32" flexible vinyl sheet is fused between two layers of foam an exterior ("decoupler") layer and an interior ("absorber") layer. The exterior layer is then covered with a thin film (2.5 mil) of mylar, reinforced with elastomer-coated fiberglass, for surface heat protection and enhanced sound absorption. 

  • The overall effect is a dramatic noise reduction when compared with single-layer foam barriers
  • Material is fire-retardant (not fireproof) up to 225°F
  • Available in two overall thicknesses
  • Decoupler thickness is 1/4"
  • Absorber thickness is 1/4" on the 1/2" kit, 3/4" on the 1" kit

Noise Control Barrier Terrible Product. My rating -10

By John

from Jacksonville

About Me Advanced

Pros

  • Good Performance

Cons

  • Poor Design

Best Uses

  • Large Boats

Comments about Noise Control Barrier Material:

This is a terrible product and should be removed from the store. There is a lot of work involved in installing this product in your engine room especially if you have multiple items mounted on the walls. When it first goes on the room looks great and it works pretty well. However, in a very short time the cells in the foam collapses almost flat and becomes useless. The design is a good idea but the performance is terrible. Do not buy this.
