Auralex Acoustics goes ‘green’ with acoustical foam
Auralex Acoustics introduced Eco-Friendly Studiofoam, a “green” acoustical foam product, at NAB2008.
The new Auralex Acoustics acoustic foam can be used in broadcast, post and production facilities.
Studiofoam brand products now include soy components, reducing petroleum-based chemical usage by up to 60 percent, which also lessens dependence on oil. This greener formula helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, yet retains the longevity and acoustical properties of Auralex’s product.
Auralex Studiofoam is manufactured without chlorofluorocarbons (CFC’s), which have been implicated in the depletion of the ozone layer. In making the conversion to the new soy-based hybrid formula, these products now boast an improved performance and durability over conventional petroleum-based foams.
