Title Application of sound-absorbing mats made of rubber waste
Original title Anwendung von Schalldämmatten aus Gummiabfällen [in German]
Bibliographic information 1991, Vol.41, No.2, p.107-109. Illus. 13 ref.
Abstract Sound-absorbing mats made of rubber waste retained their elastic properties to temperatures of -45°C, dissolved in hydrochloric acid rather quickly and were as flammable as other types of rubber. Their sound-absorbing properties (measured as insertion loss) depend on the mass per unit area. Applications include use in wall constructions, as flooring in train coaches, sound absorbing linings in machines and sound shields at workplaces.
