What is isolation tape

 

How to soundproof a room

A common use for isolation tape is for the purpose of soundproofing rooms, venues and facilities for commercial use. Isolation tape is fundamental to strict soundproofing regulations and provides a seal that absorbs sound vibration and does not allow the ingress of sound.

Alanto's single-sided adhesive applied tape is ideal for sealing door frames and other spaces that would otherwise allow the admission of noise. The material's closed cell composition means that it is a compressed material that limits the passing of noise from one room to another.

Other soundproofing uses for isolation tape

Isolation tape is key to the automotive industry. The rubber isolation strip is used to eliminate rattling noises in cars by placing the material in between two parts with irregular surface shapes. The optional adhesive holds the tape in place and prevents further movement and noise complaint. In addition to this, other uses of isolation tape in the automotive industry includes anti-slip mounting and the reduction of noise on car door seals.

High temperature tapes

Many clients often require an isolation tape that will adhere to strict fire and safety standards. Alanto has specially developed a silicone closed cell sponge tape that:

  • Tolerates high temperatures
  • Has good recovery characteristics
  • Is abrasion resistant
  • Is flame retardant
