Here at SIS, we’re always looking at new and innovative solutions that we can bring to market for our customers. As part of our continued efforts, we’re delighted to partner with Armacell, a global leader in flexible foam for the equipment insulation market and a leading provider of engineered foams, to offer its brand-new range of acoustic insulation solutions – ArmaComfort.
Armacell’s ArmaComfort range comprises a unique acoustic barrier that boasts one of the market’s most efficient ratio of transmission reduction and ultra-thin material thicknesses, and a specially developed acoustic sheet solution that reduces structural and airborne noise emanating from plastic and cast-iron drainage and wastewater pipes.
ArmaComfort Barrier achieves a sound transmission loss with a weighted sound reduction index Rw of 27 dB, with a wall thickness of just 2 mm, and Rw of 32 dB at 4mm; the human ear perceives a reduction of 10 dB as a halving of volume.
ArmaComfort Barrier products have been developed for applications in new constructions and for sound attenuation measures on existing building elements and mechanical equipment.
Based on a unique EVA/EPM blend, ArmaComfort Barrier products are easy to install, require little space and achieve excellent sound insulation properties over a wide frequency range.
They are flexible, bendable and easy to apply via self-adhesive coating. They can be used on vertical or horizontal mechanical equipment and are free of halogen, phosphate, bitumen and lead.
The products are also recyclable, rot-proof, durable and resistant to most chemicals. The premium product, ArmaComfort Barrier P, is available in thicknesses of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 mm. ArmaComfort Barrier B is offered in wall thicknesses of 2, 3 and 4 mm.
Complementing the ArmaComfort Barrier is the ArmaComfort AB range for rainwater and wastewater drainage pipes, which is available in both standard black ArmaFlex® with an acoustic EPM barrier, or with a foil face. ArmaComfort AB and ArmaComfort AB ALU Plus comes either in a continuous or self-adhesive sheet. Both products require minimal space and are flexible for easy installation on pipe connections.
