Insulation for Aircraft Ducting


Polymer’s open cell melamine foam provides excellent thermal and acoustic insulation for airplanes and aerospace vehicles. Our composites reduce condensation and increase the thermal efficacy of the environmental control systems (ECS). For example, POLYDAMP® Hydrophobic Melamine foam with POLYTECH® PEEK and POLYTECH® PEEK facings for extra durability are often wrapped around aircraft ducts.
Our variety of POLYDAMP® Hydrophobic Melamine foam insulation also maintains their original thickness even when taped around ducts, retaining the maximum performance of the material. Also, ask us about our high-mass fabrics that can also be used to mitigate excess noise.

Acoustic and Thermal Insulation for Fuselage and Bulkheads

aircraft maintenance

POLYDAMP® Hydrophobic Melamine foams are used for thermal and acoustical insulation in aircraft fuselages and bulkheads both alone and with films or high-mass fabrics. These specific foams and composites have a natural resistance to settling, like fiberglass, which allows them to be used within frames and over stringers with little or no loss of thickness, a critical factor in acoustical and thermal performance.

Melamine foam also can be compression-fit between frames, significantly reducing installation costs by minimizing the number of fasteners and retainers. In addition, composites including high-mass fabrics are used as over-frame blankets to further reduce noise transmission.

Lightweight Insulation Materials for Aircraft Flooring

Acoustical Aircraft Flooring Insulation

POLYDAMP® Hydrophobic Melamine foams, with and without high-mass fabrics, can be used for aircraft flooring applications. Our acoustical insulation reduces noise transmission into the cabin of the aircraft while resisting water, mildew, and oils. Easy to install and lightweight, POLYDAMP® Melamine foams improve your aircraft interior while increasing fuel efficiency.

Acoustic and Vibration Reduction Materials for Airplane Trim Panels

Aircraft Trim Panels

Trim panel insulation and isolation are other popular solutions that Polymer has developed for aircraft. Materials used for trim panels include Melamine foams with and without facings or mass fabrics, along with vibration isolators to reduce resonance and enhance transmission loss characteristics. The foam composites are applied directly to the outside of trim panels for additional noise attenuation and reduction of vibration or resonance of a panel.
