SoundMet is a BS Stainless trademark, it is an acoustic insulation product targeted at improved noise attenuation and reduction of labour costs. SoundMet is essentially a Mass Loaded Vinyl (PVC loaded with Barium Sulphate) layer bonded to the base metal.

Laminating the Vinyl with metal integrates the application of 2 separate components of insulation system – MLV and Jacketing Metal into one application of SoundMet, this allows substantial savings in Man Hour. MLV is also referred to as mineral loaded vinyl. The product can achieve the required sound transmission class (STC) to meet the clients demands.

Apart from the labour cost and time savings, SoundMet exhibits many more advantages over the conventional products and application method for acoustic insulation. These include:

  • Improved sealant performance at jacket overlaps helping reduce moisture ingress and potential reduction in (CUI)
  • Minimises metal to metal contact to prevent galvanic corrosion
  • No slippage when used on vertical pipes and vessels
  • Improves life expectancy of the system
  • Offers better accoustic performance than the 2 products fixed independently.
  • Huge reduction in labour fixing time and ease of application.
  • Faster install time results in less time on site for installers and less exposure to moisture of open system.
  • Reduction in fixing materials such as sealant, banding and wing seals.
  • Fully recyclable and safe to handle
  • Full control of the material integrity manufactured under strict factory controls to meet ISO, ASTM, EN  standards.


The product can be re-engineered to suit specific applications for example ultra low temperatures of minus 50 deg C or for High temperature applications 100 deg C and more, it has the flexibilty to be supplied on multiple metals such as stainless steel, Aluminium, Aluzinc and more. Other varients can be produced to meet stringent fire regulations such as  AS 1530.3 1999, ISO 3795 and FMVSS 22. It can be supplied with outer coatings such as paint PVDF (COOLMET) or Tedlar, (TEDMET). Material is supplied in coil form in flexible weights and thickness range from 0.25mm - 1.2mm dependent on material. In addition to supplying this as a laminate of stainless steel and Mass loaded vinyl or Aluminium, we can also supply mass loaded vinyl with an adhesive backing Soundmat. Or as an antivibration lamiante Vibromet.
