Noise & Filtration Materials

Teschem’s noise and filtration products allow for quieter, cleaner processes in a variety of industries and applications.

Noise Reduction

It’s a known fact that too much noise is considered pollution. People who work on, or in the vicinity of massive machinery are at a high risk of hearing damage. Isolating noise sources is done when one dominant noise producer (i.e., a machine or process) is identified as the main source of the problem. Sound dampening materials can help to isolate loud equipment where the noise levels affect a large number of personnel.

Filtration Products

The smallest contaminants can pose major problems to a process during manufacturing. To avoid this, Teschem offers industry-standard products such as filter foams. When used correctly, these filters help keep processes contaminant-free, as well as safeguarding the health of workers.

Teschem’s products are made to deal with these issues. The company’s focus on quality ensures that industrial processes are as clean and noise-pollution free as possible. In addition, all products are high performance, easily installed, and offer superior durability than others on the market. Teschem’s expert team assures its customers the best of materials, and the best of service.

Basotect® is a flexible, open-cell foam made from melamine resin, a thermoset polymer. Basotect®’s characteristic feature is its three-dimensional network structure consisting of slender and thus easily flexed filaments. For example, Basotect® is used as a sound absorber or for thermal insulation in buildings, cars and trains.

Benefits: The unique property profile of Basotect® resulting from the basic melamine resin:

  • Flame resistance (without the addition of flame retardants)
  • Application temperature up to 240 °C
  • Constant physical properties over a wide temperature range
  • Abrasiveness

… resulting from the open-cell foam structure:

  • High sound absorption capacity
  • Low weight
  • Good thermal insulation properties
  • Flexibility at very low temperature

The thermoset foam is available in several grades optimized for different applications.

Basotect® in construction and industrial applications

Its high sound absorption capacity and safe fire characteristics make Basotect® G, G+ and UF ideal for use as sound absorption in buildings. Decoratively designed acoustic panels, suspended baffles and metal ceiling panels backed with Basotect® significantly and measurably improve the acoustics. In industrial applications such as solar collectors or heating systems, Basotect® can serve as thermal insulation due to its heat resistance while maintaining good thermal insulation properties.

Basotect® in transportation

Basotect ® can ideally fulfil the rising demand for soundproofing in the field of transportation. Thanks to its good sound absorption, very low weight and high heat resistance Basotect® offers a wide variety of applications ranging from automotive construction to aerospace.

Basotect® in consumer applications

The abrasive properties of Basotect® W make it ideal for use in cleaning applications. Its good cleaning action − without any additional cleaning agent − and fine structure are clear advantages for the consumer. The foam is certified to Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 in product class I.

Basotect® G

The most commonly used of the Basotect® grades, used in industrial and construction applications.

Basotect® V3012

The original white product is used in many different applications. Its slightly abrasive properties means Basotect® V3012 can be used as a household cleaner without the need for additional cleaning agents.

Why Basotect?

The Basotect® family of products are low in weight, while still providing high levels of flame resistance, all without the addition of flame retardants. With its long-term resistance to high temperatures and excellent fire characteristics, due to use of melamine resin, Basotect® adheres to the most important international fire safety standards. The extremely flame-resistant property of the foam is a result of the high nitrogen content of the resin. As a result there is no need to use fire retardants.

Basotect is a thermoset. This means that the material does not melt or produce burning droplets when it comes into contact with flames. The foam simply chars and produces a small amount of smoke in the event of a fire. There is no afterglow, making Basotect® ideal for applications with high fire safety requirements.

Basotect® has excellent thermal insulation properties. It has application temperature up to 240°C and down to -120°C. Its constant physical properties are maintained over the wide temperature range, remaining flexible at low-temperatures.

Basotect® offers high sound absorption properties. Its open-cell surface ensures that sound waves are not reflected as an echo. The cell structure allows the sound energy to be reduced, giving Basotect® an excellent sound absorption capacity. By adding layers of heavier materials, improved sound can be achieved at low frequencies.

A further benefit of Basotects® highly cross-linked structure is it’s resistant to all organic solvents. Basotect® is produced without using halogenated hydrocarbons, flame retardants or toxic heavy metals. Basotect does not contaminate water and the supplied product is free of blowing agents.

At Teschem, we specialise in manufacturing components from flexible materials to meet our customer’s specifications, whatever they might be. Basotect® can be cut into almost any shape. It can also be incorporated in to a composite, through lamination.

Upon request Highbred/Crossover laminates can be configured to further enhance the specific properties of each material.

Teschem’s also has a range of adhesives specifically designed for Basotect® products, making installation easier, and maximising the performance of each product.
