Acoustical Data

The acoustical data represented here is the octave band data from the acoustical test reports. For the complete acoustical tests reports, please contact Pyrok Inc.

Note:  When comparing acoustical data of different products it is important to note the mounting of the acoustical specimen as well as how the exposed edges are treated in the laboratory. The data reported here is the most conservative as the edges of the test samples have been sealed with a metal or wooden frame. In this manner there is no edge absorption. Edge absorption artificially inflates a product's acoustical value in the laboratory and this value is not representative of the field applied material. Some products have been tested with only duct tape on the edges of the acoustical samples instead of wood or metal frames. It is estimated that that acoustical data obtained in this manner is 10% - 20% higher than if the data were obtained with metal or wood frame negating edge absorption of the test specimen.
