Polypress flake foam (also called Polypress) can be used to create a floating floor in homes, boats & yachts and studios. The resilient property of the material reduces impact noise. Polypress is applied by laying directly on the existing floor with a sheet material for distributing the pressure, this can be gypsum fibre or plywood sheet.

What it is and does:
Polypress is a vibration insulating product made from bonded polyurethane flakes. The material is mainly used for decoupling floors and walls. The panels isolate vibrations that would otherwise cause impact noise.

Applications
Polypress is used in homes as a subfloor, in a studio, listening room or drum booth as a floating floor. In ships and yachts, the floor or deck is placed on strips of Polypress. For applications such as parquet, laminate or floor covering, we recommend placing a load-bearing board such as gypsum fibre or plywood between the floor covering and the Polypress to prevent the finishing floor (floor covering) from bending.

  • Polypress D80: The softest Polypress variant is suitable for filling cavities, sound absorption in dry and clean environments, decoupling floors (D80 20 mm) and insulating equipment, only where fire certification is not important.

  • Polypress D140: Can be used on concrete construction floors. The D140 variant is used in studio construction for making a floating floor (finished with wood) or to make a floating concrete floor. The floor will be provided with Polypress D140. A double Polypress Strip is then mounted along all walls. ‘Skirting’ 100 mm high is then formed from the Polypress panel. The whole is then finished watertight with a thick construction foil and concrete of at least 70 mm thick (reinforced or not) can be poured.
  • Polypress D200: Can be used on wooden construction floors for decoupling, for example, laminate floors. This type can be nicely combined with Isomat KE when insulating wooden construction floors. The floor insulation step-by-step plan can be found on our tips page.
  • Polypress Strips: The Polypress Strips have a density of 300 Kg/m³ (D300) and are used for floating walls and in yacht building for floating decks and floors. Can also be used under dovetail sheets on which concrete is later poured.

Properties
Polypress flake foam is made from cutting waste that arises during the manufacture and processing of soft foams. Polypress is compressible and permanently elastic. It also has a good recovery capacity. Other properties are:

  • Dimensions: 1000x500mm - 1500x1000mm.
  • Vibration isolating
  • Sound absorbing
  • Minimum order: 2 pieces per type

Processing tips
Polypress is easy to cut to size with a sharp (electric) knife. The substrate on which the Polypress is placed must be and remain dry (first place a construction foil in a damp room). When making a floating floor, pay attention to whether the distance between the bottom of the doors and the finishing floor is large enough. The floor can be quite a bit higher.

It is preferable to decouple equipment and machines with Regufoam or washing machine dampers. If you can't figure it out, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
