Acoustic nonwoven material improves sound absorption of home appliances, automobile interiors, subway floors, office walls as well as marine and airline applications that must meet noise requirements. The material provides ‚â€œthe silence‚â€ within the newest quieter home appliances from major manufacturers. It helps manufacturers meet lower noise requirements without adding bulk to the composite material.
The spunmelt fabric can be used with foam, insulation, meltblown, high loft or other sound absorption materials as the outside facing material to enhance the composite‚â€™s noise abatement.
The thin, lightweight material (W600) reduces noise by 40%, according to independent laboratory testing results comparing it to materials without the additional sound barrier fabric layer.
The material is currently used in ceiling tiles, acoustic blankets on appliances, and package trays in cars.
