Thermatec Technologies: Leaders in Spray Insulation

Energy Efficient Spray-On Insulation


Sound Damping Material

Designed to reduce excessive sound from structural or mechanical noise, Mascoat-dB Sound Damping Material is a flexible, enviro-friendly product that bonds directly to a wide range of surfaces. Comprised of noise suppressants encased in an acrylic binder, Mascoat-dB is easily applied via brush, roll or spray methods.

Sound travels two ways - through structure and through the air. To reduce sound energy’s conversion from structurally transmitted energy to airborne sound waves, you need to dampen vibration effects on the surface. Mascoat-dB employs its sound-damping technology, suppressing vibration movement through the sound path. This suppression basically reduces or “kills” the sound prior to its airborne transmission.

Its unique chemistry and proven Dispersion technology allow Mascoat-dB to pack more sound-suppression materials into a flexible adhesive coating. The result is greater reduction of sound transmission at lower dry film weights compared to traditional damping solutions. In addition, application is normally 3-4 times faster than standard cut-and-paste-type sound damping materials.With Mascoat-dB, equipment surfaces are always viewable, so inspectability is never an issue like it is with conventional wraps and bulky sound insulation. And because the coating bonds directly to all clean surfaces, there’s no risk of adhesion loss or water entrapment that can lead to corrosion under insulation.

Mascoat-dB can be applied to carbon and stainless steel (carbon steel requires a primer), aluminum, brass, fiberglass, plastic, and many other surfaces. A typical application of just two coats provides the most cost-effective sound damping control, but additional coats can be applied as needed. Mascoat-dB is enviro-friendly, with no toxic ingredients or volatile organic compounds(VOCs). It’s water-based, so clean-up is easy with just soap and water.

Mascoat-dB is a Class A (1) fire retardant coating approved for use on cars, buses, trains, boats and large industrial complexes. Combining Mascoat-dB with Mascoat Marine thermal insulation coating achieves dramatic sound reduction and thermal qualities.
