What is Regufoam?
Regufoam is an elastomer that consists of a mixed composition of high-quality polyurethane foam. The type of Regufoam with a low denisty, indicated with a capital D, resembles fluffy rubber with a big open cel structure. As the density increases, with a maximum of 990 kg/m³, the product starts to look more like a massive piece of synthetic material. The size of the cels becomes smaller and firmer, making it more resistant against resonance. Each density is indicated by a certain colour, so you don't order based on colour but based on density. Since Regufoam doesn't consist of flakes, but from one piece of material, the product has a long lifespan. Regufoam is moisture-proof and resistant against rotting.
What does Regufoam do?
Regufoam is used for insulating contact noise that comes from basically every source that causes vibration. By placing this product between the vibration's source and the foundation, the material functions as a spring. The product ensures that the source cannot touch the foundation, and thus prevents it from transmitting vibration.
Regufoam's areas of application:
For a few applications we processed Regufoam into a ready-to-use solution for solving various sound problems, such as:
- Fitness equipment
Diminish the thumping noise from a treadmill or the resonance caused by an exercise bike by applying Unidemper Basic.
- Washing machines
As for insulating washing machines, we recommend using UniDamper Basic or UniDamper Plus for washing machines.
- (Grand) Piano
By making use of Piano Dampers you diminish contact noise that is caused by a (grand) piano. The Piano Dampers can give the instrument a fuller sound, depending on the type of floor.
- Audio and studio equipment
Light equipment, such as a turntable, gaming computer, recorder, computer, server, and loudspeakers can be decoupled using HiFi Damper Pads. These soft vibration dampers are directly applicable underneath a device. No less than 12 pieces in one set!
- Building a studio
You can also use Regufoam for decoupling (studio) walls. You should install these practical self-adhesive Regufoam Strips under the walls of your studio in order to achieve a 'floating' set-up.
Which type of Regufoam do I need?
In our range, you will find various (standard) density types of Regufoam, namely 150, 220, 300 en 400 Kg/m³. The higher the designation, indicated by a capital D, the tougher the material, and the higher the load it carries. So, for a light device you use a viariant with a low density.
As for simple applicationss, such as (mobile) airconditioning, treadmills, or swimming pool pumps, and other relatively light equipment, you can cut pieces of 100 x 100 mm from a plate of Regufoam with the use of a sharp hobby knife, keeping the following indications in mind:
- Regufoam type D150 25 mm: 0 up to 100 Kg
- Regufoam type D220 25 mm: 100 up to 200 Kg
- Regufoam type D300 25 mm: 200 up to 250 Kg
Points of attention
When decoupling equipment that contain pipes, make sure that they are stable and cannot wobble, since this could lead to clearance which, in turn, may cause leakage. Under machines with speed that builds up, Regufoam with a thickness of 12 mm should be applied. A lathe being a case in point, which shouldn't start to wobble but stand steadily. This also applies to machines with a high centre of gravity.
Application of Regufoam in the industrial sector, infrastructure and machinery
Apart from simple applications, Regufoam can also be applied to solve more complex sound issues, such as for insulating appliances, foundations of machines, floors, walls and rails from cranes, trains, and trams. As for these applications, you cannot make use of just any type of Regufoam! When you send us all the details regarding your appliance or machine, we will be more than happy to calculate which type of Regufoam and how much material you will need. In this way, you are assured of optimal vibration insulation and a safe functioning of your equipment.
