Acousti-Mat® LP is a unique blend of polymeric fibers of various shapes and sizes. The blend of these fibers is a proprietary mix designed to provide excellent reductions in sound transmission and sound reflection. The mat is bound together through a blend of polymer adhesives, which provide a tough durable mat with water repellant features.
Acousti-Mat LP can be attached to a concrete subfloor, then topped with a Maxxon Underlayment. The Acousti-Mat LP is permanently encased in the underlayment, so when the floor goods are changed, the sound control system remains intact. With this application, the Acousti-Mat LP system can meet the 50 IIC sound control rating required by the International Building Code, before any floor goods are installed. Acousti-Mat LP achieves a Delta IIC of 19, that's approximately a 75% reduction in impact noise on concrete floor systems.
Acousti-Mat LP or LPR can also be installed directly on the concrete or wood subfloor, or on top of a Maxxon Underlayment in wood or steel frame construction for additional sound control and floor flatness. Floor goods such as floating wood, glue-down wood, or tile can be installed directly on top of the Acousti-Mat LP or LPR.
To achieve the popular "loft look" without sacrificing sound control, look to Level-Right WearTop as a topping over Acousti-Mat LPR for the answer. Acousti-Mat LPR's entangled mesh offers the reinforcement necessary for high-strength WearTop.
