Foil Faced Polyurethane Foam
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd manufacture and supply a diverse range of foil faced acoustic polyurethane foam products.
Class O acoustic foil faced polyurethane foam is converted in-house, where it can be joined into rolls and split down into various thicknesses starting from just 1.5mm thick, our state of the art machinery and conversion facilities also allows us to also produce sheets and cut parts such as gaskets, pads and strips allowing us to keep our lead times low, prices competitive whilst producing high-quality products.
Our on-site laminating and adhesive service also means we can supply parts laminated with aluminium foils which further enhances the thermal and insulation properties of the acoustic foil faced polyurethane foam.
What is Foil Faced Polyurethane Foam?
Class ‘O’ acoustic foam is an open-cell, lightweight foam used for acoustic control, noise and vibration treatment and as thermal insulation material. When used as sound absorption panels or flooring, the material attenuates the sound waves, lowering their amplitude to reduce and control the noise whilst the captured energy from the sound waves is dissipated as heat.
Class O acoustic foam is flame-retardant and meets UL-94 V-0 and BS476 parts 6 & 7, it is Non-toxic, HCF & CFC Free doesn’t support fungal growth, is dust-free making it ideal for marine, building and construction, automotive, heating & Ventilation and manufacturing. During the conversion process, the acoustic foil faced polyurethane foam material can be laminated with an aluminium foil face which is also non-flammable and wear-resistant.

Why use Foil Faced Polyurethane Foam?
Many customers use class O acoustic foam as a solution to sound, vibration and thermal insulating applications. Acoustic foam materials and products can be found used in most industries including engineering, construction, automotive and HVAC to name a few.
Class O acoustic foil faced polyurethane foam is primarily used for sound reduction by controlling the reverberation that sound makes when bouncing off the walls and flooring. As well as the sound-absorbing properties, acoustic foil faced polyurethane foam is used in many other applications as the material has high performance in fire protection and thermal insulation.
The addition of the foil facing adds additional thermal and insulation properties, as the aluminium foil reflects and isolates heat, whilst offering extra shielding against vibration and noise. The foil material is resistant to wear and tear and is often found used in plant machinery, hydraulic power pack enclosures, internal engine compartments and compressor housings.
Advantages of Using Foil Faced Polyurethane Foam
Using acoustic foil faced polyurethane foam offers a huge number of benefits and uses. Not only do they offer additional soundproofing, they also act as sound and vibration absorption panels, and can help sound transmission loss.
This material can be used to create soundproof enclosures in which noisy machinery and equipment can be housed and also as linings within automotive and HVAC applications.
As both the foil and the class ‘O’ foam are flame retardant, it is often one of the safest materials to use within building and construction for soundproofing underlay under flooring, combined with plasterboard on walls and ceilings, especially studios or home cinema rooms and even within engine rooms such as on marine vessels.
The foil offers resistance to moisture and oils, which is also easy to clean, it is lightweight, easy to apply acoustic foil faced polyurethane foam odour free and can be recycled.
Benefits of Using Foil Faced Polyurethane Foam
- Acoustic foil faced polyurethane foam Can be used as floor, wall or ceiling linings for soundproofing enclosures and rooms
- Reduces unwanted vibration, noise
- Flame retardant
- Acoustic foil faced polyurethane foam can be supplied as foil-faced barrier sheets or with a self-adhesive backing on the other face
- Sheets can be cut down into smaller parts such as pads, strips or even gaskets
- Available in various thicknesses and weights
- Doesn’t support mildew or fungal growth
We at ASG supply a variety of materials with acoustic properties, with Class O acoustic foam being the most popular where a combination of soundproofing and flame retardancy is required. It is a lightweight and flexible material excellent for use as pipe lagging, duct lining and engine room/automotive insulation and much more. Class O acoustic foam is available in various forms including:
- Class O acoustic foam sheet
- Convoluted egg box foam
- Class O acoustic with barrier foam
