What is Basotect foam?
Made from melamine resin, Basotect foam is a lightweight, open-cell material that is easy to install and ideal for locations where sound absorption is crucial – this could include offices, exhibition centres, HVAC and even the automotive sector.
Are Basotect products resistant to heat?
As a result of the high nitrogen content in melamine foams, Basotect products are highly retardant to flames and heat. This ensures they are efficient and cost-effective in environments where specific standards are in force, such as in building, construction and automotive applications.
Do Basotect products have a fire rating?
Our Basotect materials are all Class-0 rated and do not melt or drip when exposed to naked flames, nor do they emit toxic smoke or fumes. This makes them particularly appropriate for ceiling and wall panels, as well as HVAC products.
With a cross-linked structure, Basotect also provides a superb level of natural chemical resistance in a wide range of environments. Resistant to all organic solvents, Basotect provides a durable and effective solution even in harsher environments.
What is the difference between soundproofing and sound absorption?
When sound waves bounce around a space they will come into contact with objects such as furniture and walls. When this happens the sound can either be absorbed or reflected back.
Sound absorbing panels will prevent the sound waves from bouncing back into the room, reducing echo. However, it does not block sound. Soundproofing will deaden the sound and prevent it entering or leaving a space.
