The open-celled, elastic foam is produced from melamine resin – a thermoset of the aminoplastics group. The foam’s elasticity results from its filigrane three dimensional network structure. Melamine foam combines the excellent sound and thermal insulation qualities of an open-celled foam with the advantageous properties of melamine resin, which are reflected by the excellent fire performance. The foam exhibits a very high resistance to both heat and chemicals. Melamine foam can be laminated, converted and fabricated to meet most requirements, making it a highly versatile foam.
The excellent acoustic absorption qualities and high thermal insulation characteristics of MELAMINE FOAM allows the material to be used in the following applications –
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning industries for duct lining etc. Wall or ceiling panels for balanced acoustics in commercial and industrial environments, theatres, halls and recording studios.
Enclosures can be lined with MELAMINE FOAM to totally encapsulate noise sources. Plus many other acoustic uses in the automotive, aviation, nautical and building industries. As an excellent thermal insulant, MELAMINE FOAM is used for insulating steam / water pipes and panels in boiler / heating systems.
