What it is and does:
Merfocom is a sound absorbing and insulating product. The panel has sound absorption at the front with a sturdy glass fibre top layer (GW). This top layer is heat-resistant, moisture and oil resistant and impact-resistant. Under the sound absorption layer is a layer of Isomat TS sound insulation. On the back of Merfocom is a layer of Merfocell which is provided with a self-adhesive layer. Due to this composition, a 'double wall' is created when Merfocom is placed. This solution insulates certain noises better than a single wall.
Merfocom is used in situations where a combination of sound insulation (increase in mass) and sound absorption (less reflection of sounds against 'hard' walls) is desired. Moreover, the material is very suitable for situations where fire resistance and/or a decorative appearance are desired. An example is the cladding of a generator set housing or walls of an engine room in a yacht.

Design of Merfocom panel
Merfocom is a combination panel and consists of the following layers:
- Glass wool top layer.
- Absorbent polyurethane foam layer of 25 mm.
- Isomat TS8 insulating mass core.
- Polyurethane foam layer of 5 mm for decoupling.
- Self-adhesive back.
Merfocom panels are easy to cut to size with a sharp and clean hobby knife. Carefully cut the front of the panel to the core. Then turn the panel over and cut the back deep into the core so that you can snap the core. Provide a dry and grease-free surface.
When mounting upside down (on hatches or ceilings), you must mechanically fix the panels using adhesive pins. Use our B-63 adhesive pens for this. You need 5 adhesive pins for the size 1000 x 600 mm and 10 pieces for the size 1200 x 1000 mm. Place the adhesive pins on the corners and in the middle of the panel.
