Acousti-Mat® LPR is an entangled mesh attached to 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 LPR can be attached to a concrete subfloor, then topped with a gysum or self-leveling underlayment. The Acousti-Mat LPR 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 LPR system can meet the 50 IIC sound control rating required by the International Building Code before any floor goods are installed.
Acousti-Mat 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 ceramic tile can be installed directly on top of the Acousti-Mat 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 or self-leveling underlayments.
