Premium Acoustic Finish
Design trends often dictate the types of building materials architects, specifiers, and end users choose for their projects. Such is the case with spray-applied acoustic finishes. Today’s trend is for the smooth look. ICC of Houston, TX, responded to that request by introducing a “Premium Acoustic Finish” known as SonaKrete.
Modern trends aside, even historical renovations benefit from SonaKrete. On the subject of looks, one acoustical consultant wrote “The clean look that was desired for the ceiling presented unique challenges for the selection of an architecturally acceptable absorptive treatment. SonaKrete was able to satisfy the acoustical requirements of the space while meeting the architect’s demanding aesthetic needs and the client’s overriding cost concerns.”
Acoustic performance is achieved by spraying SonaKrete in thicknesses from 1/4” to 3/4” to a solid backing of virtually any configuration. When it comes to durability, SonaKrete is in a league all it’s own with bond strengths in excess of 1,000 times its weight and compression strengths reaching in excess of 600 psf. SonaKrete is rated Class 1, Class A per ASTM E-84.
