TXT® Ecotex Light
Sound insulation and sound absorbing panel in mineral fibre
The Acoustics Division can supply not only various products to insulate buildings against sound, but also a wide range of services aimed at our Customers, in particular Designers and Companies. Our Company is available also to individuals who might have to solve various different problems due to noise.
Various ticknesses and different weights underwent many further university tests, including the CREEP test and the Dynamic Stiffness test that determine the performance of reference
for the sector, such as: the durability over time under the weight of the screed and the elasticity of the product.
Needless to say, the results proved better than our previous products, which, still today, are the only reference for the entire acoustic sector: the challenge was to exceed our own
expectations. We succeeded in this, and even reduced production costs by 30%.
TXT® from “Acustica Sistemi by Eterno Ivica” will become the basis for all our bonded fabrics: it can be used for impact underlay and subfloors, false ceilings and partition walls, cavities and anti-reverberation solutions. Therefore, the new TXT® is not only an excellent resilient material but it can also be used as a potential sound absorbing solution.
TXT®: Acustica… Again.
The Ecotex Light TXT th. 7 mm underlay, is made of non woven white fabric, obtained from a mixture of sanitized and sterilized filaments of cotton, linen and wool, glued into sheets of 1.20 mt x 2.00 mt with adhesive polypropylene.
This product is manufactured using recycled materials and will be fully recyclable when the building is taken down.
The product is waterproof thanks to a polyethylene film glued to one side.
The perfect continuity of the material is ensured by the presence of a wide selvage edge on two sides, pre-glued to allow for faster installation.
Dynamic stiffness: 34 MN/m3.
Compressibility: 2.48 mm.
Instructions for installation:
The installation is done by positioning the panels side by side, without overlap and by sealing the panels with 10 cm wide adhesive tape, included with the product.
Before the installation of product, the perimeter must be isolated with an appropriate Flexo polyethylene strip, that will be laid along the perimeter of the room and on the thresholds of all doors.
The Flexo strip must be cut only after the floor has been installed.
The whole floor area must be covered with the underlay, and there must be no contact point left.
We recommend the installation of an overlaying reinforced sand-cement screed, 6 cm thick. Where a floor heating system is planned this must be installed only after Ecotex Light TXT underlay.
