Acoustic Foams – Innovation for the Ears

FoamPartner is a future-oriented specialist that manufactures and processes innovative foam products and system solutions.

FoamPartner offers an extensive portfolio of tailored solutions for series production as well as custom assignments that can meet even your most challenging needs. Thanks to our many years of experience and extensive know-how, for instance in processing ultralight materials, we are a proven specialist and reliable partner for you. For instance, FoamPartner can create specific material properties for you with special impregnation processes.

We offer many years of expert knowledge as well as extensive testing options for customized and optimized acoustic solutions. In our acoustic center, for instance – which is available as a service for all of our customers – we create innovative solutions for acoustic insulations and develop effective acoustic components that are tailored to your specific needs.

We test power train elements, machines, modules and motor vehicles of all kinds on the basis of ISO 17025. You benefit from the latest technologies and the highest standards.

Measurement options

  • Air, structure and fluid-borne sound measurement
  • Artificial head recordings
  • Deflection shape analysis
  • Determining the equivalent absorption area
  • Determining the sound absorption level using an impedance tube or Alpha cabin
  • Fast Fourier Transformation (up to 6400 lines, 25.6 kilohertz)
  • Mounted insulation measurement
  • Six-channel measuring system from Brüel & Kjær
  • (Selective) sound intensity measurement
  • Sound source localization
  • Three anechoic measurement chambers
  • Waterfall analysis

In order to keep the acoustic atmosphere as pleasant and quiet as possible, acoustic foams significantly reduce the noise load. They are used in the following areas, for example:

  • Sound filtration
  • Sound insulation (airborne sound, footstep sound)
  • Sound insulation (sound absorption)
  • Sound protection
  • Sound reduction of all kinds (such as through cover elements)

In the area of acoustics, foams can be effectively used in many different ways to optimize audio impressions, sound behavior and soundscapes. Some common applications:

  • Agricultural equipment
  • Coffeemakers
  • Compressors
  • Construction equipment
  • Cooling units
  • Extraction units
  • Gardening equipment (such as electric hedge trimmers)
  • Heating burners
  • Insulations
  • Lighting aggregates
  • Seals
  • Thermal insulations
  • Upholstery
  • Vacuum cleaners
  • Ventilation equipment
  • Washing machines

Details about vehicle acoustics can be found in the Global Business Units Acoustic & Thermal Solutions, Automotive Rolls and Systems, for example for the following application areas:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive (cars, trucks and buses)
  • Cable cars Funiculars and aerial tramways
  • Marine
  • Mobile SleepingCaravans
  • Rail vehicles
  • Utility vehicles such as construction and agriculture vehicles
