A Novel Thermal Insulation, Sound Absorption and Decoration Material


Article Preview

Both of noise and building energy efficiency are attached importance to in the world. A novel material is developed to control noise, save building energy and decorate for buildings. Porous absorber, cavity resonator resonance sound absorber, film resonance sound absorber, functional absorber and high sound absorber are utilized to improve the sound absorbability. Perlite, Ordinary Portland cement, silicon fume, re-dispersible emulsion powder or emulsion, air-entraining agent, superplasticizer, short fiber and mesh fabrics are used to prepare novel material. Organic silicone waterproof material is used to prevent it from destroying, assist for sound absorbability and decorate for surface. After designing wedge sound absorber by mould, forming cavity resonator resonance sound absorber by air-entraining agent, and controlling compression ratio, diameter of perlite grain and cement dosage, final performances of sound absorbability and heat preservation can meet requirements of ASTM C423-84A and GB/T 20473-2006 respectively.
