Soundown LCF Polyimide Foam is an engineered flexible foam insulation for acoustical and thermal applications. The extreme lightweight and highly fire resistant nature of Polyimide foam makes it ideal for a range of applications. As a flexible foam product, Soundown LCF can be installed far more easily than fibrous board alternatives such as fiberglass and mineral wool.
Polyimide foam is extremely light, with a density of 0.38lbs. per cubic foot as opposed to other traditional insulation materials that range from 1.5lbs. to as much as 8lbs. per cubic foot. The resulting weight savings is important for high speed naval and yacht applications as it can reduce weight by a factor of better than 20 times when compared to 8lbs. mineral wool. Soundown LCF should be considered as an important component of any weight savings programs designed to increase range or speed.
For displacement and semi-displacement vessels, the weight savings offered by Soundown LCF can assist in maintaining a shallow draft or improve stability through weight reduction on upper decks.
