Sound management is a critical concern for manufacturers, especially in industrial applications. Loud, persistent noise not only affects working environments for end-users, but it also poses potential health implications like hearing loss. Open-cell foam products aid in blocking or reducing unwanted sound, making it a viable solution for noise management.
What is Open-Cell Foam?
Open-cell foam is very common due to its versatility and affordability. As the name suggests, open-cell foam is characterized by porous, open chambers that allow air, moisture, heat, and sound waves to dissipate. Open-cell foam is also low-density and lightweight.
