Acoustical Absorbers

Rathbun offers various materials to mitigate unwanted noise. Using various sound-absorbing foams, acoustical barriers, and acoustical foam/barrier composites, we can work with you to choose the right product to solve your unwanted noise issues. With Rathbun's converting services, Acoustical Absorbers and Barrier Composites can be die-cut to meet the specific sizes required for your application.

What Are Acoustical Absorbing Foams and How Do They Work?

Acoustic absorbers are made from sound-absorbing foam designed to dampen unwanted noise. These acoustic foams are made from open-cell acoustic material that eliminates acoustic waves as they come in contact with the foam. When applied in a component, machine, or device, these foams create an acoustical barrier that significantly reduces sound wave reverberation. By integrating acoustic foams, manufacturers can create a quieter, more controlled environment while absorbing acoustic waves.

Benefits of Using Acoustical Absorbers for Sound Control

Acoustic absorbing foams offer several advanced benefits for OEMs and industrial applications. Whether integrated into an OEM product or applied to loud machinery in an industrial environment, these materials eliminate noise that can be distracting or harmful. In some cases, excessive noise can even become unsafe when exposed for extended periods. Acoustical barriers' exceptional absorbing properties are specifically designed to solve that problem. Additional benefits of using acoustic foams to absorb unwanted sound include:
  • Enhanced customer perception
  • Improve operator alertness and awareness
  • Increase general productivity within the workplace by reducing distracting noise
