Scores & Test Results

Construction

For optimum benefit, VyBar® Marine must be properly installed. Where airflow is required, expert advice should be sought from our engineer, as acoustic baffles may be required. Any seal must be airtight for best results.

If the vessel is being insulated against both sound & fire, welded metal or bimetal pins are recommended to install.

If the vessel is being insulated against sound, adhesive PVC pins are acceptable.

Pins should be installed starting 200mm max from material edges in a 300x300mm grid pattern.

If there is a space between the VyBar® Marine and the surface it is being adhered to, a backing washer should be installed on the pin prior to installing the material. This will ensure a secure fixing.

All edges & joints must be taped with an alloy foil tape, please feel free to ask Acoustica Projects about ordering the aluminium foil tape we provide.

Fire resistant glue is recommended.

When cutting to install always leave a 2-3mm margin all around for a tight fit even when cutting from a pattern.

If the product is being laminated with other materials a fire-resistant glue is recommended.
