In Focus: A close look at Basotect

Basotect® is a flexible, open cell foam made from melamine resin, a thermoset polymer. Its high sound absorption capacity and reliable fire characteristics without the addition of flame-proofing agents make Basotect® suitable for sound insulation in buildings, air conditioning equipment, and ventilation systems.


BASF's specialty foam BASOTECT® was used in the swimming stadium site for the 2008 Olympics Games inBeijing in order to clad the interior of the building with flame-retardant and environmentally friendly acoustic insulation.
