Important Notice and Disclaimer: These recommendations are for general guidance
only. Materials and installation methods must be tested under actual service conditions to
determine their suitability for a particular purpose.
1. Keep Sheets Flat
For product supplied in panel or sheet form, the product must be kept flat during
the handling and installation process. Bending or folding sheets will create creases on the
Soundmesh G8 facing. Once formed, these creases are difficult to remove.

4. Installing Panels onto Walls or Ceilings with Express Finish (with a 20mm gap and no trim)
Construction contact adhesive such as Megasorber A200 or Megasorber A100 spray-on contact adhesive is
recommended to adhere the product onto the substrate. Photos below show the installation process.

CAUTION: for large size panels (such as 1.2m x 2.4m) on ceiling or overhead applications,
a mechanical fastening system is recommended to provide extra support. The photo below shows
the combination of Megasorber A200 or Megasorber A100 spray-on contact adhesive and small screws

5. Installing Panels onto Concrete Walls or Ceilings with Concrete Pins
Concrete pins are recommended together with a high tack adhesive such as Megasorber A200 or Megasorber
A100 spray-on contact adhesive. A typical mechanical fastening system is shown below:

6. Other Edge Finishes
Plastic, steel or aluminium U channels can be used to cover the edges. The photos below show examples
of different finishes.

Alternatively, a matching Soundmesh G8 tape can be used to seal the edges and joins. The standard
Soundmesh G8 tape colours available are: Black (BK), White (WH), Grey (GR) and Sandstone (SS).
Recommendations for applying the Soundmesh G8 tape are:
- The substrate surface must be flat, dry, free of oil, dust, grease and other contaminants.
- Soundmesh G8 tape must be firmly pressed against the substrate upon application to ensure the adhesive
has full contact with the substrate.
- The application temperature is recommended to be at least above 10°C.
- For products with water repellent G8 facing, the G8 tape can be applied with heat and pressure,
such as an iron or a hot air-gun plus a pressure roller.

The product can be hand-cut by a knife or machine-cut by a bench saw or rotating blade cutter with
a fine tooth blade.
If cutting by hand, we recommend using a sharp Stanley and/or serrated knife.
We recommend wearing gloves during cutting. The Soundmesh G8 facing edges may cut or irritate the skin.
8. Cutting Holes
Use a saw hole cutter or a hole puncher as the drill bit to cut holes through the product. A typical
hole puncher and drill bit are shown below:
9. Recommended Adhesives
High-Tack, High-Temperature Resistant Adhesive
Megasorber A100 High-Tack Spray Adhesive
An air-less spray adhesive system designed for installing Megasorber acoustic panels. It is supplied
in a canister (17.2kg) or as an aerosol (500ml). The canister has a non-flammable propellant, making
it one of the most user-friendly and environmentally friendly spray-on adhesives. Estimated coverage:
about 120m2 per canister and about 4m2 per aerosol.
Megasorber A200 High-Tack, High-Temperature Resistant Adhesive
An odourless and fast curing adhesive. It is free of solvent, isocyanate, PVC and silicones. A200 is
supplied in 290ml cartridges and provides excellent bonding for Megasorber acoustic panels. Recommended
coverage: about one cartridge per 1.2m x 1.2m panel.
Megasorber AC5 Adhesive Cleaner
Megasorber AC5 Adhesive Cleaner is recommended for adhesive removal and surface cleaning.
