Acoustic & Thermal Insulation

Acoustic Components

UFP Technologies will work as your partner in developing a custom sound management component for your application. We act as an extension of your R&D and engineering teams to understand your requirements and determine the best solution.

We have extensive experience in designing and manufacturing sound control components including:

  • Microphone windscreens for military components
  • Acoustic enclosures for home speaker systems
  • Buzz, squeak and rattle pads for automotive manufacturing

Materials such as flexible polyurethane foams are designed to perform a number of specific and seemingly opposite acoustic functions such as: reducing sound levels or passing sound undistorted and undiminished. Non-reticulated foams are ideal for sound absorption and attenuation. Reticulated foam can absorb sound effectively or can be completely acoustically transparent.

Our unique fabrication capabilities are important when manufacturing sound management components. In many cases space and functionality is an issue. We have the ability to felt and compress foams to provide sound absorption in a thinner space. We can also combine foams with other specialty materials such as foils and vinyl to provide additional function and aesthetic appeal to the end user.

Thermal Insulation Components

Our deep technical knowledge of reticulated polyurethane foams and polyethylene foams is utilized when creating custom thermal insulation components. UFP Technologies will work with you to design and fabricate your custom component.

We have created solutions to manage temperature and liquids in a wide variety of applications for medical procedures, automotive manufacturing, building and construction and chemical processing.

As one of the largest foam fabricators in the North America we have access to a host of specialty materials including polyimide and melamine foams which are used in high temperature applications where flammability is a concern.

Our fabrication capabilities allow us to manufacture your custom component and combine multiple materials if necessary. We have the ability to adhere foils and other temperature sensitive materials to enhance your component.
