NORFOLK, Neb. - March 13, 2014 - PRLog -- Nebraska, USA, MP Global Products offers a stellar line-up of environmentally friendly fiber acoustic underlayments for hard surface flooring. The fiber acoustic underlayments, constructed using pre-consumer recycled textile fibers, are VOC-free and meet the most rigorous indoor air quality standards. All environmental claims are independently certified.

QuietWalk® , MP Global’s most popular acoustic product, is engineered for installation under laminate and floating wood floors. QuietWalk’s filaments are randomly air-laid, creating a capillary effect to cushion the floor, absorb sound, and help make laminate floors sound more like real wood. QuietWalk dampens ambient sound in the room it’s installed in and helps minimize impact and airborne sound from traveling into the room below. QuietWalk’s patented manufacturing process and recycled fiber composition (certified minimum 94% pre-consumer recycled fibers) create a unique moisture management system to protect the overlying flooring from harmful water vapor while retaining its exceptional compression resistance over the lifetime of the installation.

VersaWalk is a universal underlayment designed for use under wood, laminate and luxury vinyl tile. Composed of at least 94% pre-consumer recycled fibers, VersaWalk installs under nail-down, glue-down and floated flooring, making it a great choice for installations where there are multiple types of new flooring. VersaWalk smoothes out little subfloor imperfections while quieting impact sound and floor to ceiling noise. It also dampens ambient sound in the room and helps minimize impact and airborne sound from traveling into the room below.

Insulayment®, made with 100% recycled pre-consumer textile fibers, is an excellent match for glue-down and nail-down hardwood or engineered wood floors. The randomly air-laid filaments create a capillary effect to cushion the floor and absorb impact sound. The 0.11” thickness helps smooth out imperfections in substrates. And, with a R-value of approximately 0.50, Insulayment will add a thermal "break" to the flooring assembly.

UltraLayer® is a perfect match for ceramic and porcelain tile floors and many natural stone tiles. UltraLayer helps absorb impact sound so it won’t transfer to the room below and insulates floors to help keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Made from 100% pre-consumer recycled fibers, UltraLayer suppresses lateral cracking to protect ceramic tile from potential damage. The 0.10" thickness of UltraLayer helps smooth out imperfections in substrates prior to the installing the floor covering.

QuietWarmth®combines the superior acoustical and insulating technology of QuietWalk® with ThermoSoft® FiberThermics® heating elements to create a supplemental radiant heat and underlayment system ideally suited for under floating wood floors, laminate floors, and Avaire Porcelain a dell as under SnapStone® tiles. It may also be used under traditional ceramic and porcelain tile. QuietWarmth suppresses impact sound from hard surface flooring while making the surface toasty warm under bare feet. It would be a welcome addition to kitchens, bathrooms and playrooms, especially in homes where children often play on or close to the floor.
