HVAC systems should create comfort, not a soundtrack


BASF offers polyurethane rigid foam systems, such as Elastopor®, for sandwich elements for air conditioning and ventilation systems. In addition to flexibility and extra-low thermal conductivity level, our high-performance foam systems can achieve high sound absorption.


Basotect®, a flexible, open-cell foam also achieves high sound-absorption figures in the medium and high frequency range. Basotect can be configured to precise sizes and offers long-term resistance to high temperatures. Its excellent sound absorption and safe fire characteristics are the most important advantages of Basotect, especially in air conditioning and ventilation systems. Inner walls of fan housings can also be lined with Basotect to reduce noise levels.
