Features

Vibration Damping Sheet with Fireproof Facing

Megasorber D10 is a vibration damping material with a fireproof Soundmesh G8 facing and self-adhesive backing. It is designed to provide both vibration damping and sound transmission loss.

Using the latest polymer alloy technology, Megasorber D10 is a polymer blend designed to provide high visco-elastic damping properties. As a result, Megasorber D10 reduces structure-borne noise effectively.

Megasorber D10 is also designed to follow the mass law to provide additional sound transmission loss (or Rw) of thin metal panels.

The facing material, Soundmesh G8, has BS 476 Part 4 “Non-combustible” classification and BCA (Building Code of Australia) Group 1 fire Classification. It complies with IMO Resolution A653(16) requirements. It has high temperature resistance up to 550°C. It provides a protective, tough and durable surface for Megasorber D10, with standard colours of black (BK), grey (GR), white (WH) and sandstone (SS).

Note:

  1. Facing colour code: the standard facing colour is black. The other colours are: GR = Grey; SS = Sandstone and WH = White. MOQ (minimum order quantity) applies for other G8 colours.
  2. Add “A” for the adhesive backing. For example:
    Megasorber D10-4BK: 2mm thick with black Soundmesh G8 facing;
    Megasorber D10-4BKA: 2mm thick with black Soundmesh G8 facing and self-adhesive backing.
  3. G8 facing may have some stripy appearance. Hairline creases may occur on the facing while handling.
  4. Thickness tolerance is ±10% and sheet dimension tolerance is ±1%.
  5. Other sheet sizes available, however MOQ applies.
