Megasorber FM, Megasorber P and Megasorber FG are the new generation of sound absorption materials for building acoustics. Megasorber has developed
a unique fireproof sound absorbing material called Soundmesh G8 (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canada Patent No. 2674986, Australia Patent No.
2009206197) for these products.
Soundmesh G8 is one of the very few acoustic materials that achieve the Building Code Australia (BCA) Group 1 Fire Classification.
Combined with a unique thermal-set non-combustible foam, Megasorber FM is a non-combustible sound absorbing foam and it has BCA Group 1 Classification.
With a thermally bonded polyester base, Megasorber P has BCA Group 2 Classification with Average Specific Extinction Area
less than 250 m2/kg.
Megasorber P100, a sound-absorbing polyester-wool
with fireproof & water repellent Soundmesh® G8 acoustic facing, was used to line all the walls and ceiling of the compressor
house of Orica Building, Kooragang Island.
Brewery Plant Room Noise Reduction
The consultants and the owner of the plant had set a high standard for any insulation materials to be used in the state-of-art manufacturing
must be fireproof
must not absorb any water
MUST have water repellent and easy to clean surface
must not grow mould
must not have any loose fibres
must meet with the food process requirements, and
must be simple and easy to install, ie, low installation costs.
Megasorber engineers took up the challenge and developed Megasorber P50 for the project. The consultants and the owner checked and
approved the product.
The video below shows how the Megasorber P50 acoustic panels were installed with our A100 adhesive directly onto the cool room panels at the
Coopers Brewery Plant. The ceiling area is approx. 1,500 square metres.

room in Melbourne:
This product is great. It used to take us weeks to install the glasswool and perforated metal sheets. Now we can walk out of the site just in a couple of days!

Compressor Room Noise Reduction
Megasorber P50 used to line all walls and the ceiling
in a compressor room with a very noisy compressor:
We are very pleased with the product. It not only reduces the noise dramatically, it looks fantastic.

Chiller Room Noise Reduction
Chillers tends to generate high pitch tonal noise. It has caused discomfort to the employees in the Qantas building. After assessing the noise
level and the noise frequency, the consultant specified Megasorber P50 to be installed in the plant room and the noise problem was resolved.

Stopping "Cross Talk" Between Rooms
Megasorber DIS8, a self-adhesive vibration isolation
and damping sheet, can be installed between two layers of plasterboard on a room's stud walls to stop annoying "cross talk" between rooms and

Rain Noise Reduction for Metal Roof
Colourbond roofing panels are usually very thin (about 0.5mm) and tend to generate high noise when impacted by heavy rain. To maintain the light-weight
advantage of the metal roofing system, Megasorber light-weight damping materials absorb raindrop impact noise without adding much weight.
Both Megasorber D14 and Megasorber LD5 are widely used and the typical noise reduction is between 8dB(A) to 10dB(A). In addition, the damping materials help to increase the sound
transmission loss of the roofing system. As the consultants put it, "we can kill two birds with one stone" by using Megasorber's damping products.
Cafe customers complained that they could not have a normal conversation when it rained on the nearby metal roof. After coating the metal roof
with Megasorber LD5, the cafe shop owner and the customers are now happy!
