The Sonic Barrier VE-1 was formulated for maximum damping efficiency over a broad frequency and temperature range. It is made of a mineral-filled visco-elastic polymer that transforms vibrational energy into thermal energy (low level heat). It provides twice the damping of asphalt based product, without the weight and odor. The VE-1 has a leather grain finish and is cosmetically pleasing, so it can be used on front speaker baffles and other applications that are visible to the eye.
The flexible nature of the VE-1 damping sheets enables it to mold and conform to irregular surfaces. It can be cut easily using a standard razor knife or scissors. The pressure sensitive adhesive makes peel and stick installations easy and will adhere to most surfaces including metal, wood, and fiberglass. Excellent flame resistance, can handle continuous temperatures up to 250° F and meets UL94V-O. Thickness: .050". Sold in 10" x 13" sheets.
Home Theater: Can be used as a constrained layer between two sheets of drywall (sheetrock) to reduce wall resonance and control noise and vibration in home theater and Hi Fi listening rooms. Because VE-1 is odorless, it will not stink up your whole house!
Speaker Building: Perfect for lining the interior of your speaker cabinet. It will dramatically reduce vibration energy that would normally be stored in the walls of the cabinet. Can be used as a constrained layer between two pieces of wood. The VE-1 also makes excellent gaskets! Use between the driver and front baffle to absorb vibrations.
Automotive: You can reduce interior noise levels 3-10 dB by applying VE-1 damping sheets to the door panels, firewall, floor pan, trunk lid, or any interior sheet metal panel. Top performers in car audio competitions know that a reduction of 3 dB in the interior noise level is like doubling your effective amplifier power! Because VE-1 is lightweight (about half of asphalt sheets), it will not weigh down your automobile!
