What is TUFCOTE™ Sound Absorbing Acoustic Foam?TUFCOTE acoustic foams have been engineered by Aearo Technologies to absorb sound waves within a defined space, ranging from equipment cabinetry to automobile cabins. TUFCOTE™ sound-absorbing foam materials stand up to extreme temperatures ranging from the arctic cold to desert heat.
Aearo Technologies manufactures TUFCOTE™ foams using a thin sheet casting process. This process chemically adheres the foams to a range of film facings or barrier materials to form combined composite products in a one-step process. The proprietary manufacturing process chemically bonds the facing, adhesive, and foam to resist delamination that can occur in other methods.
