Foam Sound Insulation

Sound insulation is often achievable by spraying foaming polymers. The essence of the method is to spray liquid components on the surface of the walls, ceiling, and/or floor. The components are mixed and enter into a chemical reaction, forming a foamed insulation layer on the surface.

The technologies offered by our company for applying foaming cellular polymers provide reliable sound absorption, not allowing noise from the street or from working equipment to penetrate an isolated room.

No matter what technology you choose—mineral wood, cellulose, or open-cell acoustic foam—a habitable room or an office will be additionally protected from temperature changes and high humidity.

Sound-Absorbing Foam: Application Scope

Foaming sound-absorbing materials are used if it is necessary to ensure a noise level in the room that does not exceed the established norms, depending on the purpose of the object.

The choice of polymer application technology depends on the conditions of the location and operation of the building and is performed based on calculations.

The coating technology and thickness are selected depending on the material applied with a sound-absorbing layer and the need to provide heat and moisture insulation.

If you're a sound studio owner, a home office worker who needs to work remotely, or a night shift worker who needs to sleep during the day, the sound-deadening foam is what helps you create a productive and peaceful environment.

Sound-Absorbing Foam: Advantages & Benefits

Let’s explore the most important ones:

  • Low coating thickness

  • Strength

  • Covers construction defects

  • Heat insulation

  • Moisture insulation

  • Durability

How Does the Soundproof Foam Work?

The components of the soundproofing foam chemically react to form an effective insulation layer. Specifically, the acoustic foam has a specific composition that allows it to soak up the sound. Typically, it's an open-cell foam that permits sound waves to travel through the outer layer of the foam. However, there they stuck and lost their energy, dampening the noise.

Yet the advantages of acoustic foam do not end there. Besides reducing outer noises, it can also prevent unwanted echoes and reverberations inside the isolated space, thereby improving the sound quality. That's why the soundproof foam is also suitable for professional musician studios, auditoriums, or home theaters, where the clarity of the sound matters.

The foam application requires precise calculations to ensure that it meets the specific conditions of the building and optimizes its comfort and functionality. That's why we recommend seeking professional help from experienced sound insulation specialists, who use top-grade foam to guarantee proper sound absorption and additional protection against temperature fluctuations and humidity through comprehensive surface coverage.

Soundproof Foam Properties

The soundproofing foam may have certain parameters that improve or reduce its effectiveness:

  • Density and thickness. The product with high density provides better noise reduction because it offers more material per unit volume. The more material there is to interact with sound waves, the easier it is for sound waves to disperse. As for the thickness, thicker foam can absorb lower frequencies.

  • Cell structure and composition of the material. Sound-absorbing foam usually has an open-cell structure because it offers more pathways for sound to bounce around and dissipate over time. Also, it's preferable to choose the foam type with high sound-absorbing properties, which is polyurethane or melamine foam.

  • Location inside the house or commercial building. The meaning of the comprehensive coverage should not be underestimated. If walls, ceilings, and floors are adequately covered, it diminishes opportunities for sound reflection and forms a barrier to airborne noise.

Frequently Asked Questions — FAQ

Is foam good for soundproofing?

Spray soundproofing foam with a soft texture and the ability to soak up noise is an easy way to shield your home from pesky outdoor sounds. Unlike other materials, foam is lightweight, easy to install, and has an affordable price. However, note that if you need to block the sound completely, the soundproofing foam type you choose should possess high noise-blocking characteristics.

How to install soundproofing foam?

As for our product, we spray the acoustic foam onto the surfaces of walls and ceilings, window slits, and door slits. Before that, we cover the furniture and items and prepare the surfaces, making them clean and free from dust or debris. As the components of the spray foam react with each other, the foam expands within seconds, forming a layer of protection against sound, heat, and moisture.

What is the best foam insulation for soundproofing?

Acoustic foam is a very effective product for sound deadening, thanks to its diversity. Depending on your needs, the acoustic foam may vary in density and softness. The most effective acoustic foam structure provides a route for the sound wave and then traps it, transforming the sound into heat. Such an acoustic foam usually has a porous structure because its narrow pathways make it difficult for the sound to escape from the layer of foam.
