METROFLEX'S SOUND-PROOFING PIPE AND DUCT WRAP LAG

MetroFlex's MLV Pipe and Duct Wrap Lag is a flexible 1 lb per square foot reinforced foil-faced faced mass loaded vinyl noise barrier. It is typically used to wrap noisy pipes and ducts to block the noise that transmits through the walls of the pipe or duct as air or other contents move through it as well as to increase the sound absorption in the cavity. The reinforced foil-faced exterior serves as a protective jacket for indoor or outdoor applications. It is easy to cut, wrap and install with matching sound seal lag tape.

METROFLEX MLV SEALR TAPE

MetroFlex SealR Tape should be applied on all seams between two sections of mass loaded vinyl after MetroFlex Sound SealR Acoustic Sound Sealant is applied to the joint.

MetroFlex SealR Tape is a composite of copolymer film laminated to an interwoven alloy which provides an extremely high tensile strength while maintaining the flexibility of the mass loaded vinyl. The adhesive is a self-curing acrylic which provides a high initial tack when applied to vinyl based products. The adhesive strength increases with time creating an exceptional permanent both with the vinyl.

SealR Tape is used to seal the joints and seams of mass loaded vinyl in various soundproofing applications to ensure a complete and air-tight sound barrier system.
