Universal Biometric unveils Acoustiblok sound proofing material in Middle East countries

Abstract:
Acoustiblok sound proofing company announced that a new formula of their 1/8" material mounted with a 1/4" strip of ThermaBlok produced an amazing 22% increase in R Value (thermal insulation) when added to a stud wall.

Independent certified lab tests confirmed the results making tests comparisons of two identical metal stud walls, one with Acoustiblok and one without. The difference was a clear thermal improvement of 22%.

Acoustiblok stated that "while our soundproofing product continues to receive worldwide attention (even awards in the British House of Commons), many have raised the question of thermal value considering the rising energy costs.

ThermaBlok is truly a revolutionary break through. It is a new "nanoparticle technology" which was developed in the aerospace industry and used on the space shuttle. Because of its molecular structure it has the absolute lowest thermal conductivity of any solid material known.
