New ArmaSound MTD Makes Commercial Spaces Quieter
- Introducing ArmaSound® MTD to the United States market
- 7-point improvement in Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating
- Excellent sound isolation at mid- to high-level frequencies
- Easy alternative to conventional resilient channel or isolation clips
- Quick installation – ideal for healthcare, education, hospitality and government construction
Chapel Hill, NC, Feb 12, 2019 – Armacell, a global leader in flexible foam for the equipment insulation market and a leading provider of engineered foams, today announced the release of ArmaSound MTD, a new acoustic tape for use in commercial buildings.
ArmaSound MTD tape offers an exceptional way to mechanically decouple drywall board from the stud, reducing the amount of structure-borne sound that can pass through partition walls. This ability to bring quiet to a space makes this an ideal solution for healthcare, education, hospitality, worship and government buildings.
This patent-pending foam tape offers a multitude of benefits. It can be used on radiused walls and provides an air seal to the stud. It is an easy alternative to resilient channels, isolation clips or installing extra layers of drywall. Plus, it delivers a significant 7-point typical improvement in the Sound Transmission Class rating that the majority of alternative construction methods cannot match. By comparison, extra wallboard typically equates to two points per sheet and resilient channel typically five to seven points. Isolation clips typically offer up to 11 points, but can be costly and difficult to install.
“Acoustical engineers are tasked with finding new ways to prevent noise from disturbing occupants in close quarters. ArmaSound MTD tape is our latest easy-to-install innovation to structure-borne noise. Its enhanced performance parameters deliver acoustical performance for engineers and a quick and easy method for installers”, says Russ Johnson, Armacell’s Product Manager for Component Foams.
Armacell makes this high-tech acoustical tape in the United States and it is available now through select distributors.
