Mass Loaded Vinyl — The Green Choice

SoundMat logo

Reducing environmental impact is of major concern to all of us and organisations across the entire spectrum of commerce and industry continue to seek out new ways of fulfilling our many requirements while causing minimal damage to the world around us.

Mass loaded vinyl is one of the products to emerge from this dedication to improving environmental standards and we are specialist suppliers of the versatile material - innovatively bonded to a range of metals in our exclusive product SoundMet, mass loaded vinyl is changing the way heavy industry thinks about metal jacketing insulation.

Many insulation systems can be noisy, particularly those in power stations and oil & gas processing plants. To protect employees and comply with health & safety law, adequate sound-damping must be installed - mass loaded vinyl is the ideal material to provide this barrier for a number of reasons.

  • The flexible noise barrier is constructed from high-density, naturally-occurring minerals which make it extremely pliable to help prevent the transmission of sound

  • We supply mass loaded vinyl which is loaded with pure barium sulphate, which is specified in ISO 15665 and is used by a wide range of engineering and design companies including market-leading Shell

  • An extremely high mass makes the product the most effective available for damping excess sound when used for acoustic pipe wrapping and metal jacketing insulation systems in the gas & oil industries

  • Tough and robust, mass loaded vinyl will resist grease, weak alkalis and acids, water and mineral oils

  • Available in a comprehensive range of mass levels to suit all applications

  • Additional options include glass reinforcement, improved fire resistance (for BS 476), enhanced protection from low temperatures (down to 50 degrees centigrade) and a host of other global specifications

  • We have supplied mass loaded vinyl to locations all over the world, both as a standalone product and as part of a complete package including SoundMet and ancillary products such as expansion springs, wing seals and stainless steel banding

  • As an alternative to lead that is fully recyclable, our mass loaded vinyl carries unrivalled green credentials

  • Availble in 5 kgs 7.5 kgs 1and 10 kgs per m2 as standard but can be manufactured to meet specific needs such as 6kgs or as required for the sound reduction targets.

 We can supply mass loaded vinyl either bonded to metal (Soundmet) or on its own with a self adhesive peel off backing for ease of application (Soundmat). All our materials are manufactured in the UK with full traceability. Find out more about our acoustic solutions here.
