Sylcer for Ceramic Tiles

Home/Products/Floor Sound Insulation/Sylcer for Ceramic Tiles

Sylcer is an innovative, high performance product ideal for acoustically upgrading existing buildings during renovation work on ceramic tiled floors. Sylcer is a high density, low thickness recycled rubber mat made of SBR and EPDM rubber, that dampens and absorbs noise transmission from footfall and other types of impact noise.

It  is  laid  directly  onto  existing  floors  without  removing existing tiles, or onto existing concrete screeds ready to receive the new ceramic or stone finish tiles directly onto the acoustic insulation.

Sylcer is the only impact sound insulation for ceramic tiles that has been tested to an improvement value of 17dB according to ISO140-8.

Ln,w (Impact Sound Pressure Level) – 61dB
This figure measures how much sound reaches the receiving room. The lower the figure the better.

Rw ( Airborne Sound Transmission Loss) – 53dB
This figure refers to the ability of the floor to provide sound insulation. The higher the number, the better the sound insulation.

* Concrete floor, levelled screed 50mm, Sylcer bonded to the screed, 10mm ceramic tiles glued to the Sylcer mat

Sylcer ceramic tile sound insulation is fixed directly onto the screed using a suitable adhesive. It is disconnected from the perimeter walls with a self adhesive flanking strip. The ceramic tiles are then fixed directly to the sound insulation mat using a flexible adhesive and then grouted.
