Acoustical - Noise reduction levels up to 10 times that of alternative materials.
thermal insulation - Outstanding thermal insulation for temperature sensitive applications.
structural strength - Load bearing structural support from high strength to weight ratio.
chemically inert - Unaffected by exposure to oil, grease, petroleum and most chemicals.
ARPRO is a unique (simultaneously porous) closed cell bead foam that features air pockets, or voids, within the hollow cylinder-shaped bead structure; these extra voids increase the number of air pockets, which enhance acoustic performance.
ARPRO Porous is highly durable and resists multiple impacts without damage. Unlike many other acoustic materials, ARPRO Porous is not fibrous, discharges no particles when abraded, and semi-structural.
Automotive engineers benefit from ARPRO Porous in key applications to reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), with tests showing noise reduction levels of up to ten times that of alternative materials. ARPRO Porous is used extensively in car interiors to reduce noise levels without increasing weight. ARPRO is also used in domestic and industrial HVAC-R component casings specifically to reduce pump, valve and control mechanism noise.
