Specifications and Literature

Performance Attributes

Noise Reduction
Superior tensile strength
Fire protection
Increased durability and storage life
  • Noise Reduction

    Acoustimax™ S nonwoven offers high levels of absorption resulting in a noise reduction coefficient of up to 0.73*

  • Superior Tensile Strength

    More resilient and easier handling during installation

  • Fire Protection

    Nonwoven technology results in low levels of flammability enabling the product to have a classification of A I EN ISO I 182 testing standard (also DIN 4102-1/EN ISO 13501-1).

  • Increased Durability and Storage Life

    Superior performance in humid environments and no shelf life limitations
