Operating on the open water offers unique challenges that Polymer Technologies has been helping marine manufacturers solve for decades. Our range of composite solutions ensures passenger comfort and safety on waterways and prevents structure-borne noise and vibration from engine machinery.
We help marine manufacturers reduce the amount of noise, vibration, and thermal energy transmitted from motors and equipment. Polymer’s composite solutions for marine applications are ideal because they are low density, flame resistant, and protect equipment from structural duress, ensuring its longevity for years to come.
Passenger comfort and safety are important considerations when designing marine vessels. Floor mats can be used to provide a durable, non-slip wear surface that increases transmission loss, like our selection of POLYDAMP® acoustical floor mats.
Floor mats provide a barrier that blocks sound waves and makes walking on surfaces safer. We have a variety of different wear surfaces, our most popular being the pyramid type wear surface, and the modified twist floor mat with a closed cell decoupler. Get anti-slip and abrasion resistance while simultaneously blocking noise and vibration from entering through the bulkhead of a vessel by adding POLYDAMP® acoustical floor mats.
For additional noise reduction, we provide acoustical barriers with and without foam decouplers for use as a floor underlayment. POLYTECH® closed cell foams are typically used as decouplers for compression resistance, comfort, and thermal insulation while also separating the barrier and floor mat to optimize acoustical effectiveness. Our POLYDAMP® acoustical foams are also used in marine wall and bulkhead insulation applications.
At Polymer, our solutions help marine manufacturers significantly isolate noise, heat, and vibration within engine compartments or dissipate it into areas that do not directly affect the operator, passengers, or residents on the shoreline.
To help meet strict sound restrictions, we have worked with marine motor manufacturers to develop custom molded foam solutions that improve noise reduction of their motor. See our case study to find out how we can help marine manufacturers provide a quieter ride on the open water.
Polymer Technologies’ anti-vibration mounts are suitable for marine engine applications to stop noise at the source. Isolate vibration and shock while reducing noise in both stationary and mobile industrial equipment.
Prevent wear and tear on engines and sensitive components with our line of high-quality, fail-safe isolation mounts. Our most popular solution to stop excess vibration in marine vehicles is our line of SquishyFlex® Anti-Vibration Mounts, as they provide reliable vibration control in three axes.
Get isolation mounts that are built tough for marine applications, including outboard motors, diesel engines, motors, compressors, pumps, generators, and more.
Our solutions for marine bulkhead acoustical issues include various types of insulation applied directly to the bulkhead to reduce noise. We generally use acoustical foams, including melamine foam and urethane foam with and without a barrier. POLYDAMP® Hydrophobic Melamine foams alone, and with films and high mass fabrics, can be used for thermal and acoustical insulation applications. These specific foams and composites have a natural resiliency and resistance to compression set,ensuring effectiveness throughout the vessel's life.
