Acoustic damping for production facilities

| By Gerald Ondrey

Basotect thermoset melamine resin foam (photo) offers outstanding acoustic properties. Because of its fine, open-cell foam structure, it can achieve sound-absorption values in the mid- and high-frequency ranges. Moreover, sound absorbers made from Basotect reduce the echo caused by reverberation on sound-reflecting surfaces. This makes conversations easier to understand in busy spaces, as well as being an effective way to reduce noise peaks in industrial settings. The lightweight Basotect absorbers are a simple way to retrofit workplaces with high noise exposure to enhance acoustics. — BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany
