Vibra-Coustic SVD SLU (Self-Leveling) / TTU (Trowel)

Multi-layered composite decking underlayment systems specifically designed to attenuate airborne noise transfer between compartments, reduce impact induced sound and provide vibration dampening of structural components. International regulations and standards mandate the requirement to mitigate noise and vibration in occupied accommodation spaces. The system integrates a primer, viscoelastic membrane and a high density self-leveling deck underlayment which significantly reduce the airborne noise transfer and dampens the structural vibration by defusing the kinetic energy wave transfer that propagates the sound and attenuates the vibration to reduce noice transference.Specification Reference: U.S. Dept. of Defense MARAD Spec No. 59MA 6a Type I, Class 2 / U.S. Coast Guard Approval (IMO) 164.106/50/0
