SOUND CONTROL

Our Sound Abatement Membranes (SAM®) are designed to significantly reduce both impact (IIC) and airborne (STC) sound. We offer sound control solutions for a variety of applications including apartments, condominiums, hotels, residence halls, office buildings, media rooms and classrooms so you can reduce sound and protect your flooring investment.

With NAC sound control systems, you won’t have to hear it to believe it.

HOW IT WORKS

How Sound Control Works

The SAM line of membranes is composed of modified elastomers, sound deadening resins and reinforced woven fibers, providing superior sound reduction in a peel and stick membrane. SAM membranes are designed for use in applications with or without a sound rated ceiling assembly and have been rigorously tested in an independent laboratory over concrete and wood substrates, earning some of the highest ratings in the industry.

Super SAM® 125

Super SAM 125 is known as one of the most effective all-in-one membranes on the market due to its superior sound reduction as well as its ability to also function as a moisture barrier and provide crack isolation up to 3/8”. Super SAM 125 can also function as a waterproof membrane when the seams and joints are properly treated.

Full Product Description

Super SAM 125 is a thin (approx.1/8" thick), self-adhering, self-healing, sound-deadening sheet membrane chemically formulated to reduce airborne sound (STC) and impact sound (IIC) transmission when used under surfaces without a sound rated ceiling assembly (SRCA).

Features & Benefits
  1. IIC 51, STC 54, ∆IIC 22 on a 6” concrete slab
  2. IIC 56 and STC 61 on a wood joist system
  3. Sound control over concrete and wood substrates
  4. Resists Moisture Vapor Transmission up to 10 #1000 SF/24HRS when used with NAC TAC or NS97 Primer and 7#1000 SF/24HRS when used with NAC TAC II Primer
  5. Works with radiant-heated floors and tile warming systems
  6. For use with a variety of hard surface flooring including ceramic, porcelain, stone, marble, slate, granite tile, pavers, brick, hardwood and manufactured wood

SAM® 3

SAM 3 is a low profile membrane which functions as a moisture barrier and provides crack isolation up to 3/8”. SAM 3 also protects against reflective cracking and will function as a waterproof membrane when the seams and joints are properly treated.
