The cost effective solution

What is Acousteel?

Acousteel is a leading sound deadened steel which can reduce unwanted noise and vibration by over 1000%.

An invisible solution to noise and vibration, Acousteel is a constructed laminate with an energy absorbing viscoelastic polymer situated between two metal skins, the result of which is an audibly dead steel panel. It offers an effective and easy to implement solution to remove unwanted noise and vibration from any steel or aluminium sheets, panels or pressings which have inherent structural noise problems.

How does Acousteel work?

Acousteel works by using constrained layer damping. This basically absorbs sound and/or vibration energy by the two skins of material moving relatively to one another. This movement creates shear strain, which in turn is dissipated as negligible heat. Incredibly, this creates up to a 30dB(A) reduction in sound which equates to a thousand-fold decrease in sound energy.

Acousteel the facts

– Acousteel can reduce unwanted noise and vibration by over 1000%

– Acousteel is cost effective compared to traditional solutions

– Acousteel is invisible simply by replacing existing parts

– The HSE lists sound damping as one of its top ten noise control techniques.

Acousteel grades

The range of gauges is from 1mm (0.5mm +0.5mm) to 4mm (2mm + 2mm). The sound absorbing viscoelastic polymer thickness is a negligible thickness 0.06mm. Acousteel is available in most grades of steel including mild steel, Zintec, Galvanised, Precoat, Stainless 304 & 316 etc. In addition to steel, aluminium, copper and brass plate can also be laminated.

Acousteel is available in both symmetrical and asymmetrical formats, for example 2mm + 2mm (symmetrical) or 1mm + 3mm (asymmetrical) which is useful when the panel is folded.
