Performance Materials Acoustic Insulation for Noise Suppression & Sound Abatement

Do you need to put an end to noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH)? Look no further than JBC Technologies. As a large volume die cutter of acoustic (noise suppression), thermal, and electrical insulation, JBC is a one-stop solution for high-volume OEM noise suppression and abatement requirements. We can also service one-off custom cut needs using our digital die cutting capabilities. In addition, JBC can produce multilayered, custom-laminated insulations that include aluminum foil or peel-and-stick adhesive backings.

Here are some of our featured noise suppression materials along with some general application information about each.

3M™ ISOLOSS™ LS Polyurethane Foams

3M Isoloss LS Polyurethane Foams By Aearo Technologies

ISOLOSS™ LS polyurethane foams feature a low compression set, high durability, and broad operating temperature range and are available in a wide range of densities and thicknesses. They're flame and chemical resistant, highly shock resistant, and perform well in extreme environments. Available in bulk-rolls and can be laminated with pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) for easy application.

Common Applications:

  • Vibration damping and/or shock absorbing pads in electronics devices
  • Gasketing, gap-filling and Noise, Vibration & Harshness (NVH) reduction in appliances
  • High durability gasketing, padding and sealing for automotive applications
  • Air conditioner filter rack seals

3M™ Thinsulate™ Acoustic Insulation

3M™ Thinsulate™ Acoustic Insulation is a cavity filling solution for automotive sound insulation applications. Thinsulate products are high-performance and low density making them ideal for vehicle lightweighting applications. Thinsulate insulations are readily processed by conventional material converting techniques like die-cutting, heat sealing, and lamination. Available in bulk-rolls, laminated with pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) or die-cut into custom parts.

Common Applications:

  • Automotive sound reduction in door panels, headliners, instrument panels, pillars, and trunk liners.
  • NVH applications under carpet/dash mat, underbody, wheel wells and other variable cavities
  • High-performance, targeted noise reduction as part of a vehicle lightweighting initiative

PORON® Industrial Polyurethanes

Looking to reduce automotive NVH? Rogers Corporation’s family of PORON® polyurethane vibration management foams is known for its excellent vibration and damping and impact absorption. PORON® Polyurethane Foams are easily die cut into custom parts, are flame-retardant, and come in a variety of firmnesses and thicknesses. View Rogers’ Product properties guide here.

Common Applications:

  • Lithium-ion battery cushioning and shock absorption for electric vehicles
  • Lining aircraft fuselages to reduce cabin noise while exceeding industry standards for flammability, smoke density and toxicity
  • Various rail interior vibration management applications including seals, floor isolation pads, sound barrier, and anti-vibration/rattle

Synthetic Blanket

Lightweight, compressible, and made of polypropylene non-woven sound-absorbing fibers, synthetic blankets are extremely effective in reducing noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) in appliance, automotive interior, and HVAC applications. Most are hydrophobic and resist moisture and bacterial growth.

Some of the more common synthetic blankets we die cut at JBC include 3M™ Thinsulate™ Acoustic Insulation products, Aim Fiber’s AutoZorb®, and Polyzorb® products, and TENNECO Quietshield® acoustic absorber.

Common automotive OEM applications:

  • instrument panels
  • door panels
  • liftgates
  • instrument panels
  • pillars
  • package trays
  • headliners
  • carpet areas
  • and more

TABshield

JBC’s TABshield patch series is designed to provide superior thermal and acoustic performance It is easy-to-install, conformable to most shapes, and an ideal solution for a variety of targeted noise and heat suppression applications. Available in sheets, rolls, or die-cut to your specification, TABshield patches may also be customized with pull tabs for easier liner removal. Foil options include multiple thicknesses, smooth or embossed finishes, scrim reinforcement, and even perforated aluminum to improve acoustical performance for automotive heat shielding applications. It is also ideal in many appliance applications where both thermal and acoustical insulation are needed.

Common applications include targeted thermal and acoustical protection for:

  • engine shields
  • tunnel insulators
  • dash insulators
  • hood insulators
  • engine compartments
  • exhaust
  • shields
  • tunnel shields
  • marine heat shields
  • HVAC
  • and more
