Regardless of whether you want to line the inside of the engine compartment, the passenger compartment or the floor, the principle as to how to proceed is the same for all versions.
In the automotive sector, these spaces are insulated by means of foam. Flame-resistant foam is best used for this purpose in conjunction with our bituminous foil. The bituminous foil is only approx. 2 mm thick and is sound-absorbing for metal surfaces (reduces vibrations) and absorbs the noise. The foam adhered to it absorbs airborne sound and also reduces the resonance or noise.
If you insulate the engine compartment, adhere our flame-resistant foams to the initially laid bitumen sheet - the thicker, the better the insulation. The sheets are usually adhered over the engine under the bonnet.
If you want to insulate the interior of the vehicle (for example, roof liner, doors or floor), first lay again our bituminous foil for sound-absorbing directly on the metal parts and then on top of that our particularly firm rebond foam. This not only reduces the noise in the passenger compartment, but guarantees thermal insulation at the same time. The materials are flexible and easy to use.
|Here is an example of how one lines a van - sound and thermal insulation with our rebond foam. The sheets can be easily cut with cardboard scissors and adhered with our spray adhesive. Alternatively, one can still adhere as a first layer our bituminous heavy-duty foil, which is also sound-absorbing for metal. One then adheres the rebond foam to this and thus obtains perfect noise protection and protection against the cold.|

Fire protection is an important issue when installing acoustic foam sheets.
The quality of the acoustic foam is largely responsible for its absorption behaviour.
Noise insulation is much more complicated than pure acoustic improvement or resonance removal.
You can easily mount foam because it is very light compared to other materials
