Acoustic Flooring for the Shipbuilding Industry
Sikafloor® Marine Visco Elastic Technology
In order to make the interiors of ships more comfortable and quieter, viscoelastic solutions that dampen noise and vibration can be found within the Sikafloor® Marine range.
VEM viscoelastic mortar technology and PU Red technology can be combined with different marine mortars to offer a wide variety of floors. With the right combination you can find the solution that the customer needs taking into account the weight, thickness and level of insulation.
Sikafloor® Marine visco-elastic systems are built up with a flexible layer applied to the deck with a constrained layer installed on top.
The flexible visco-elastic layer is the Sikafloor® Marine VEM technology, a visco-elastic polymer modified mortar. The constrained layer is either a water-based cement mortar compound of Sikafloor® Marine 18, Sikafloor® Marine 118 Fast Cure (FC), Sikafloor® Marine 190, or steel tiles. Sikafloor® Marine visco-elastic have the flexibility and the mass needed to dampen the vibrations of vessels, especially in the lower frequency range produced by engines, thrusters, and other noise sources.
