Insulating Materials for the Appliance Industry

Vibration isolation, acoustic insulation, and thermal insulation

Materials for the Appliance Industry

Polymer Technologies’ products have a variety of uses for insulating appliances and providing vibration isolation. Whether it’s insulation for appliance walls or blower and motor applications, we can develop a custom solution for your project. No matter what your challenge with appliances is, our engineers are excited and ready to tackle it!

Acoustic and Thermal Insulation for Appliance Walls and Exteriors

Thermal and acoustic water resistant insulation for appliance manufacturers

POLYDAMP® Melamine and Hydrophobic Melamine foams can provide acoustical, thermal, and vibration control in appliance walls. When water resistance is necessary,  standard POLYDAMP® Melamine foam just won't cut it. Instead, we recommend the extremely water repellent POLYDAMP® Hydrophobic Melamine foam (PHM). With long-term use in these applications, PHM foam also offers a higher degree of safety. The beauty of POLYDAMP® foams lies in their low weight and extreme efficiency compared to fiberglass materials. We also offer film facings for appliances, including reinforced aluminum foil and other UL94 V-0 compliant films for additional durability and thermal resistance.

Appliance Vibration Isolators for Feet, Bumpers, and Blower Mounts

Motors often cause devices to produce a noticeable amount of vibration and noise.
Elastomeric rubbers and molded foams are perfect solutions for keeping appliances quiet and stable as they isolate vibration.

Isolators have countless applications in the appliance equipment industry, the most prevalent use being the stabilizing “feet” of an appliance. Our elastomeric solutions are suitable for use as appliance feet, bumpers, blower mounts, and more.

To better meet your needs, our molded isolator materials are available in both molded urethane foam and molded elastomer options to help keep devices running smoothly.

Custom Molded Foam for Shock Absorption and Noise Reduction

Custom polyurethane foam mold for noise reduction in appliances

Even small motors can pack a punch! We’re pros at developing custom solutions for motor housing through our PMP division. Our custom molded foam products absorb shock and reduce noise, creating a quieter and more efficient end product.

We’ve helped appliance manufacturers develop their own custom molded solution to reduce structural vibration, and are ready to help you tackle any energy management problem head-on.

To complement a molded foam solution or be used as an alternative, our various damping materials, specifically EDPV0, are also suitable for mitigating resonant vibration in structures.
