Megasorber FM acoustic panels with white, sandstone, grey and black Soundmesh G8 facing
Megasorber FM soundproofing panels provide superior acoustic and thermal insulation, and are extremely
lightweight, making them easy to handle, cut and install for architectural and engineering applications.
Highest fire rating (BCA Group 1)
Megasorber FM is inherently fire-resistant and has
Building Code Australia (BCA) Group 1 fire rating as per AS 5637.1-2015 and ISO 5660 Group 1 fire classification.
No ignition, melting, dripping or spread of flame when exposed to fire: the front and back of FM panel
Superior Acoustic Performance
The FM panel utilizes our patented sound absorbing facing material Soundmesh G8 to provide maximum sound absorption especially at low to mid frequencies (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canadian Patent
No. 2674986, Australian Patent No. 200926197).
The unique Soundmesh G8 facing is extremely tough and durable. It is inherently fire resistant.
Traditional fireproof faced materials and sound reflecting film facings (such as aluminium foil, mylar film and polyurethane
film) have little or zero acoustic properties and block noise from being absorbed by the underlying foam. In contrast,
Soundmesh G8 is engineered and tuned to maximize the sound absorption.
Exceptionally High Thermal Insulation
Megasorber FM is engineered with an extremely fine cell structure to trap air and block heat transfer. It provides
exceptional thermal insulation, making it one of the most effective lightweight thermal insulation materials.
Heat, Aging and UV Resistant
The Megasorber FM base foam has excellent heat, UV and aging resistance. It can withstand up to 240°C (short time)
without decomposition and up to 140°C continuous operating temperature without any distortion.
Megasorber FM is very durable (long service life) in hot and humid conditions such as marine and tropical environments.
Optional fluid-repellent facing
Water-Repellent G8 Facing (Optional)
A fluid/water repellent Soundmesh G8 is also available. Standard facing colours are white, grey, sandstone and black.
Handling, Installation and Maintenance
Megasorber FM acoustic foam is extremely lightweight and self-supporting, making it easy to handle, cut and install.
The Soundmesh G8 facing is protective, tough and durable. Finger marks, dirt marks and surface contamination can be easily removed and cleaned using Megasorber Clean M8 block. The built-in fluid/water repellent property (optional)
of Soundmesh G8 provides for easy cleaning and maintenance making it ideal for outdoor applications.

G8 facing may have some stripy appearance. Hairline creases may appear on the facing when handling.
There are colour variations between batches, especially for the grey and sandstone colours. Soundmesh G8 facing
made from different batches may be difficult to colour match.
Thickness tolerance is ±5% and sheet dimension tolerance is ±1%.
Other sheet sizes available are: 1200mm x 1200mm and 1200mm x 600mm (1195mm x 595mm if packed in boxes). We can
cut panels to any size and any shape using our CNC cutting technology, however, extra cutting charges apply.

temperature, this may cause creasing on the Soundmesh G8 facing. The
creases do not affect the acoustic performance.

IMPORTANT NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER
Specifications are subject to change without notice. Please contact us for the latest version. Patented Soundmesh G8 (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canada
Patent No. 2674986, Australia Patent No. 2009206197). The data listed in this data sheet are typical or average
values based on tests conducted by independent laboratories or by the manufacturer. They are indicative only of
the results obtained in such tests and should not be considered as guaranteed maximums or minimums. Materials and
installation methods must be tested under actual service to determine their suitability for a particular purpose.
"Aussie engineered and made" means the products are engineered and made in Australia with globally sourced materials. “Fireproof
” and “ non-combustible ” mean product has BS 476 Part 4 “Non-combustible”
The following recommendations are for general guidance only. Installation methods must be tested under actual service conditions to determine their suitability for a particular purpose.
We recommend installing panels in accordance with the appropriate procedures as approved by Megasorber.
1. Keep Sheets Flat
Sheets must be kept flat during the handling and installation process. Bending or folding sheets may create
creases on the Soundmesh G8 facing. Once formed, these creases are difficult to remove.
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.
Knife cut by hand: we recommend using a sharp Stanley and/or serrated knife.
We recommend wearing gloves during cutting. The Soundmesh G8 facing edges may irritate or cut the skin.
3. Direct-Fix: Installing Panels with Adhesives
Substrate Surface Preparation
The surface must be flat, dry and free of oil, dust, grease and other contaminants. Clean substrate with Megasorber
AC5 or similar.
Megasorber AC5 Adhesive Cleaner is recommended for adhesive removal and surface cleaning.
Option 1: Megasorber A200 Fast Drying, High-Tack Adhesive
High-tack, high-temperature resistant adhesive
Odourless and fast curing
Specifically designed to provide instant holding of the FM acoustic panel
Apply A200 adhesive on the back side of the acoustic panel (not on the Soundmesh G8 facing). Important note: The Soundmesh G8 facing (woven non-combustible fabric) must face the noise. Apply the glue on the other side of the panel. DO NOT peel off the Soundmesh G8 facing.
Install the panel immediately after the application of the glue. Important note: A200 is a fast curing glue. You have approximately 7 minutes to position the panel, before the A200 glue starts to harden and loses tack.
Align panel and apply gentle pressure to the panel. Megasorber A200 instantly holds the panel in position.
Adjust and re-position panels as required, within 7 minutes after applying the glue.
Once the panel is in place, apply firm and evenly distributed pressure to the panel to ensure it is level. DO NOT compress the panel with a pressure roller.
Shadow-line finish for architectural applications: we recommend leaving a 15mm to 30mm gap between panels. DO NOT butt-join panels.
Clean any excess A200 adhesive with Megasorber AC5.
Allow at least 24 hours for adhesive to cure completely
