Basotect® (MF) – The Versatile Melamine Resin Foam

Basotect® (MF) – The Versatile Melamine Resin Foam
Sound absorption, fire resistance, thermal insulation or abrasiveness: Basotect® combines many requirements for high-performance foam in one product. In construction and industrial applications, in the automotive and transportation sectors, but also in consumer applications, Basotect® provides a great variety of options.

Basotect® is a flexible, open-cell foam made from melamine resin – a duroplastic synthetic material. A typical characteristic is the intricate spatial mesh structure that is formed by thin ribs that can therefore be bent into shape easily. Basotect® has excellent sound absorption properties, a low weight, high temperature resistance and low flammability.

Basotect® allows significant acoustic improvement in, for example, restaurants, reception areas, meeting rooms, and airplane cabins. However, Basotect® is not only the ideal solution for acoustic insulation. With its very good thermal insulation properties and easy processing, Basotect® also impresses with respect to thermal insulation and air conditioning technology.

In automobile manufacturing, Basotect® can be pressed into precisely contoured components, and thus offers optimum sound proofing. At the same time it can also function as a thermal shield in the engine compartment, for example.

A very different application option can be found in everyday life: With its flexible micro structure and gentle, abrasive effect, Basotect® effortlessly cleans tiles, glass ceramic stove tops, and stained wallpaper ‒ without the additional use of additional cleaning agents. Furthermore, you are using a product that was tested for harmful substances, because Basotect® W is certified to the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® (10.0.74938 HOHENSTEIN HTTI).

Basotect® Offers You Many Advantages

  • High sound absorption capacity
  • Good thermal insulation properties
  • Low weight
  • Abrasiveness
  • Flame resistance – without the addition of flame retardants
  • Constant physical properties over a wide temperature range
