With Polyimide-Foam Duct Liner, Air Is Felt, not Heard, in School Auditorium

November 2010
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Nov2010, Vol. 82 Issue 11, p16
The article discusses the application of SOLCOUSTIC, a non-fibrous coated polyimide-foam duct liner from Evonik Foams Inc., at the Houlton Community Arts Center in Maine. Joseph A. Fagnant, president of the Houlton Community Arts Center, describes the benefits of using an air-handling system. It notes that non-fibrous polyimide foam could be as substitute to fiberglass.
