Tecsound S100 is a self-adhesive, thin and high performing acoustic membrane to reduce airborne noise and vibration.
Tecsound S100 is a self-adhesive, visco elastic membrane used to reduce airborne noise with fantastic results. It can be applied directly to walls, floors and ceilings using specifically between acoustic plasterboards to yield the best performance in our sound insulation systems. Tecsound S100 can also be applied directly to metal work to significantly reduce vibration within a structure.
When soundproofing walls, floors and ceiling you will want to consider the use of a highly effective acoustic system to retain the best results for both airborne and impact noise. Seperation is a key factor when noise levels are excessive this is to reduce the points of contact with the structure. Mass is another key factor in which the increase of this helps to resist airborne noise.
The best performing systems and products are when they are made up of different materials with different densities and with additional flexible properties to break down the soundwave as it passes through a partition - this is where Tecsound is an ideal addition to your Soundproofing solution. Our MuteClip® System is a great place to start for soundproofing walls and ceilings for fantastic results.

This product is part of the following systems:
Tecsound S100 is a 5mm thick, visco-elastic membrane that is accompanied with a self-adhesive backing to make direct application simple and straightforward without the need for direct fixing, tacking or any additional adhesives. Visco (viscous, a thick and often sticky consistency) elastic (when stretched will often return to its original state) is a flexible, dense and easy to cut product that sits between both of these two properties turning sound energy into heat, dissipating the sound energy. Essentially this highly adaptable sound proofing material is applicable for floors, walls and ceilings, for cinema rooms, for sound proofing your home or constructing composite acoustic systems along with our MuteClip™ for optimal performance.
Reducing vibration in structures, especially metal structures, is one of Tecsound’s most astounding features, and it will be a change you notice immediately with direct application. The self-adhesive backing stay’s in contact with the surface - which is why we opt for self-adhesive. Energy from the vibration conducted in to the Tecsound S100 and dissipated vastly dampening the resonance and removing the long release of ringing often heard in metal structures. Tecsound is often used to reduce resonance between acoustic plasterboard and improve airborne performance, the most effective soundproofing systems provide different densities and material properties to break down frequencies in different ways, sound travels with varying degrees through different properties, some help to slow down it’s trajectory, others help to block it through mass.
Vibration travels great distances in metal structures, metal is after all a conductor of energy.. For example: if you tap on a metal structure you will often here it ring, think of playing a steel drum or a triangle, then tap a wooden block - which one has a longer decay time? Tecsound S100 is perfect for the use of sound proofing metal ducting against vibration, this would often not require complete coverage of the ducting and maybe only in small parts. In cases where the metal ducting leaks sound, we will aim to wrap the ducting to reduce sound transmission.
Tecsound S100 temperature range is between -20°C to 60°C, anything above and below these could compromise performance with direct contact with the pipes, it is best to create a form of acoustic boxing around these pipes and apply Tecsound to the acoustic plasterboard boxing, something you will want to discuss with a plumbing specialist to be sure it is compatible.
Waste moving through waste pipes can make for an uncomfortable environment, especially if they are not acoustically treated. Tecsound S100 can be used to soundproof waste flues, you should aim to box in the waste pipe to improve the sound proofing performance.
As an alternative, our MuteWrap™ works exceptionally well against sound proofing waste piping.
Bathrooms and wet rooms contain high amounts of vapour and moisture which in time will begin to degrade the Tec sound’s adhesive qualities and possibly damage it’s elasticity over time, it is recommended to use a Vapour or Moisture plasterboard protecting it from any exposure, it is most common that Moisture Board is used internally in bathrooms to protect the soundproofing materials beyond it. Vapour Boards concern primarily external walls, so when damp is expected in these areas - you will want to discuss the use of soundproof materials with a damp specialist in these placements.
Tecsound S100, when hung as a curtain reduces sound as an average of 31dB - what this means is that if you place a sound measuring device at one end of the room and another device playing sound at the other end (usually in a controlled environment and to specific level of sound) it would reduce it by this amount. Decibel reductions cannot be added together, so when using Tecsound S100 in a sound insulating system, applied directly to a wall or within one of our MuteClip™ Systems, these results will differ and is not always possible to determine what level of soundproofing the Tecsound will provide in these composites.
