What is Acoustic Foam and what is it used for?
Have you ever walking into a large room, with plenty of space between the walls and furniture, and clapped your hands? If you have, then you may be familiar with the echo that will find its way back to you as a result. This is due to the sound literally rebounding off of the walls of the space. Acoustic foam is used to absorb the sound waves created by noise in the space, therefore reducing the echo and creating ‘cleaner’ sound.
Interestingly, acoustic foam has started to become more and more common in new architecture designs, especially for educational or office spaces. This is due to the reverberations created in wide open spaces being too distracting, thereby decreasing the productivity of those working in the rooms as a result. So, if you’re a business owner and have not already installed acoustic foam in your offices, you may have found the reason for your team missing those numbers last week.
If you’re already familiar with acoustic foam, then you will probably imagine square panels of soft and lightweight foam that is strategically placed on the walls of a room. However, that is not the only form of acoustic foam that is available. Dense, heavier panels of the material are used to between the walls of two rooms to stop the sound travelling between them. This is known soundproofing a room, whilst the smaller, lighter panels essentially dampen the sound in the room.
So, you’ve decided that you want to give acoustic foam a go and find out whether it really does increase productivity in your workplace. That’s great!

But if by some chance acoustic foam is a new concept for you, we’ll explain a bit more about what acoustic foam is and how it can help you in the following sections. You may be surprised about some of the benefits of acoustic foam that we’re about to reveal.
What is acoustic foam?
As you can probably tell from the name, acoustic foam is a foam product that does an especially good job of sound absorption. There are two very important points to be aware of:
- This task is not the only one the product is suited for; and
- Acoustic foam is the best product to use for this task.
The most common materials used in manufacturing acoustic foam are polyurethane and melamine. When you have a choice, it’s better to opt for polyurethane foam because it does the best job, costs less, and is non-toxic in solid form unless it is burned. Melamine is very toxic, as you may remember from the 2008 melamine milk scandal in China, responsible for harming approximately 290,000 babies, 54,000 of which needed emergency hospital care.
The foam works firstly due to the nature of the material, which is highly absorbent and is constructed of many tiny, closely packed cells which help to trap acoustic vibration.
A secondary aid to this function is the special shape the foam is moulded into. This resembles an array of steep mountains and valleys, and this shape also helps to break apart the vibrations and prevent them from penetrating through the foam.
Prior to the invention of acoustic foam, cardboard egg cartons were used for the same purpose. These have a similar shape to the acoustic foam, but they don’t do the job to the same level of perfection because they don’t possess a similar cellular structure.
Other uses for acoustic foam
People are often surprised to learn that acoustic foam isn’t only suitable for soundproofing. The special shape of it and good shock absorption properties due to inherent elasticity also make it an ideal product for packaging electronics and other delicate items. The way the foam is shaped makes it able to spread the effects of compressive force and vibration in a way that provides superior protection for delicate items even more effectively than flat foam packaging material.
Acoustic foam is often used for shipping computers and computer components. It may also be found as the packaging material for televisions, lamps, vases, figurines, and similar items where even small amounts of vibration could result in damage to the packaged items.
It is also used as a lining material for camera cases and some camera bags, while other types of solid foam are used to create dividers to separate the individual camera components from one another.
