Acoustic combined plates for insulating appliance, machine, and engine housings, in pleasure crafts such as yachts, sloops, and tenders.

What Are Combined Plates?

Combined plates
Acoustic combined plates consist of a composition of insulation and absorption materials. These products are widely applicable for insulating appliance, machine, engine housings, etc. in pleasure crafts such as yachts, sloops, and tenders, and for insulating the bonnet of vehicles.

Combined products have several advantages compared to seperately purchased products. You only need to buy one product, cut it one time, and by one act you apply to solutions: insulation and absorbtion. The result: a suitable product, saving both money and time!  

Available combined plates
In our range you will find two products under the label 'acoustic combined plate': the heavier Merfocom and the lighter Merfodem. Both products have there own areas of application.

Merfocom Merfocom Combinatieplaat
Merfocom is a product that combines insulation and absorption in one plate, consisting of five layers. Merfocom is mainly applied in sloop-, yacht-, and shipbuilding for insulating engine housings and enclosures.

Merfocom is also used for insulating medium-sized pump, compressor and appliance housings. For example, outdoor appliances (pumps) that cause noise nuisance on a construction site can be insulated using Merfocom.

The insulating core ensures extra insulation of low frequency sounds. Thanks to the glass cloth fiber top layer, Merfocom can also be applied in confined spaces. Merfocom is self-adhesive, but should ideally be fixiated using additional tools because of the high weight of the product: 10 kg/m². As for finishing the seams between the various plates, you can make use of Merfotape GW (don't apply this tape directly above a heat source!).

Merfocom combined plates consist of the following layers

  • Top layer of grey glass cloth fiber on the visible side.
  • Absorbing polyurethane foam layer of 25 mm.
  • Isomat TS8 insulating core. 
  • Polyurethane foam layer of 5 mm for decoupling.
  • Self-adhesive back.

Merfodem Merfodem Combinatieplaat
Merfodem is a product that combines insulation and absorption in one plate, consisting of four layers. Merfodem is mostly applied in the lighter appliance and machine building for insulating housings and enclosures of aluminium, synthetics, and steel.

When building yachts, Merfodem can be applied for the anti-drumming and covering of fuel and water tanks and in order to insulate lightweight appliances on board. In vehicles, the product is suitable for insulating the outside bonnet of the vehicle, provided that the local temperature allows this.

Merfodem consists of an anti-drumming layer and an absorption foam of 25 mm that is provided with an oil-, moisture-, and dirt-proof PU top layer. The product can be easily cut to size and is self-adhesive. Mask the seams between the various pieces of Merfodem using Acustitape, preventing liquids from pentrating the absorption foam.

Merfodem combined plates consist of the following layers

  • Top layer of a black PU-film on the visible side.
  • Absorbing polyurethane foam layer of 25 mm.
  • Vibraflex UF anti-drumming with a weight of 3 kg/m².
  • Self-adhesive back.
