Engine compartment insulation and cab insulation protects mobile equipment and operators against heat, noise, vibrations, and environmental conditions. The Elasto Bag, a sack full of samples from Elasto Proxy, contains engine bay insulation, cabin insulation and rubber floormats that you can see for yourself and hold in your hands. Here’s a look at what’s inside.
Engine Compartment Insulation Samples
The Elasto Bag contains three types of engine compartment insulation.
SH-500-58-ZMT reduces heat and noise from the engine bay. This three-layer composite sandwiches a layer of silicone foam between a reinforced fabric facing and a removable liner with a PSA adhesive. The facing material is black and smooth. All three materials provide strong resistance to chemicals, oils, and mildew. SH-500-58-ZMT is suitable for applications with temperature ranges between -40° C and 150° C.
SH-625-54-ZTBRA is thermal-acoustic insulation for maximum sound attenuation over a broad frequency range. It sandwiches a vibration damper between acoustical foams and includes a metal foil facing that reflects radiant heat. For ease-of-installation, an adhesive-backed liner is used. SH-625-54-ZTBRA is dense, flexible, and characterized by high transmission loss and high noise reduction coefficients.
SH-2000-48-MEZT is a lightweight, fire-resistant melamine foam that can be combined with various facing materials and PSA liner. The open-cell melamine foam combines high-temperature resistance with superior sound-absorbing properties. Facing materials like aluminum foil can reflect radiant heat and provide chemical resistance.
Cab Insulation Samples
The Elasto Bag contains four types of cab insulation.
SH-250-60-PVTM (FM-ZM) is an insulation sandwich that consists of a sound-absorbing foam bonded to a vinyl facing. The facing material contains small holes for enhanced acoustical properties and provides an attractive appearance for cabin interiors. For ease-of-insulation, SH-250-60-PVTM (FM-ZM) features a removable liner with PSA adhesive.
SH-500-PVTG combines the sound absorption of acoustical foam with the toughness and durability of a vinyl facing. The foam meets industry-specific flammability requirements and is heat-laminated to a vinyl film with small holes for enhanced noise control. SH-500-54-PVTG’s attractive appearance makes it a good choice for vehicle interiors, marine headliners, and enclosures.
SH-1000-54-PVTBL sandwiches a thick layer of polyether or polyurethane foam between a PVC-coated fabric facing and a removable liner with PSA adhesive. The charcoal-colored facing material contains a series of small holes for enhanced noise control. The foam is tested to ASTM specifications and meets various flammability standards.
SH-1000-54-ZZUT consists of a sound-absorbing foam that’s heat-laminated to a urethane film or matte facing. These films and facings come in different colors and can provide resistance to moisture, dirt, and most petroleum products. For ease-of-installation, SH-1000-54-ZZUT can include a removable liner with PSA adhesive.
Rubber Flooring Samples
The Elasto Bag contains two types of rubber flooring.
FM-500-60-ZM flooring contains a single layer of acoustical foam that’s bonded to a sound barrier. The top of this barrier material features a durable, wear-resistant, diamond plate design. Applications for FM-500-60-ZM include floormats and flooring in trucks, buses, construction equipment, and agricultural machinery. This composite is also a good choice for runners and anti-fatigue mats.
FM-625-50-ZM features a weather-resistant pebbled surface and provides superior impact strength. Applications include floor mats in heavy equipment and mining equipment, and tool box liners and trailer wall liners. FM-625-50-ZM is also used as a ground liner for storage tanks or berms. The polyethylene foam that’s used meets flammability specifications for the mobile equipment industry.
