Aquaflex Performs to Attenuate Sound! Performance on par with many noise reduction underlayments Results are in on the acoustic studies conducted by Intertek. The testing was conducted on a 6” concrete slab w/ ceiling assembly. We ran both the ASTM E90 (STC) and ASTM E492 (IIC) test protocols. TAJ provided..
X-Ray Diffraction Results The compound chemistry/mineralogy of the Aquaflex Patch Mix sample is dominated by a mixture of calcite + larnite + calcium aluminum oxide (+ ~ 10% other minor components). Crystalline SiO2 (i.e., quartz + cristobalite + Tridymite) accounts for < 0.5% of the sample (present as traces of..

Also missing from standard practice was the requirement for moisture testing. At that time ASTM was more noted for installation practice than moisture..
What are isocyanates? A polyurethane polymer is the result of the 2 part chemical reaction between a polyol resin and a hardener agent called polyisocyanate. The polyisocyanate hardener is composed of a reacted mixture of diisocyanate with other organic materials. Unreacted diisocyanate from the creation of the hardener is the..
