Acoustic Melamine Foam – Melatech, made of Basotect®, a melamine-based acoustic foam; is a unique, flexible, open-cell foam, possessing a combination of low weight, a Class 0 fire specification and good sound absorption properties.

® = registered trade mark of BASF SE.

Manufactured from melamine resins, melamine foam exhibits superior fire, temperature and chemical resistance. Furthermore, being halide-free, melamine foam does not emit any of the toxic by-products associated with conventional polyurethane-based acoustic foams when exposed to either naked flame or extreme heat.

Versatility, coupled with a choice of complementary acoustic materials such as damping sheets, barriers and facings, allows Melatech foam to be used in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications where superior reverberation control is required.
