    Originally published by : Building Enclosures — July 17, It needs to be used with other heavier materials to be an effective sound attenuation material. This way, we can compare wall systems based on their design and materials. This is followed by trimming of the stream and then cutting into smooth-surfaced thermal panels that are rigid and durable. It performs better when you pair it with other materials. The rigid panels of can be used in walls or wrapped and hung as acoustic panels.

    A high STC rating of 50 indicates that the wall is virtually soundproof.It can be melted to provide a void.

    When used in standard interior wall construction Styrofoam can help raise the STC rating over If the wall construction includes mass loaded.Install telephones, doorbells, intercoms or audio built-ins on interior walls only — never on common walls or corridor walls.

    Expanded polystyrene, when used in combination with other building materials effectively reduces the transmission of airborne sound through partitioned walls.Styrofoam is a building material and is lightweight and not very dense.

    Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) works as an adequate thermal barrier, It has an NRC rating of to and can significantly improve a wall's STC.But with something added to the inside to reduce the noise.

    Three inch EPS insulation with two sided 1/4” drywall in a wall system can reduce sound transmission to approximately 36 DB. More Info STC Ratings and ASTM.Polystyrene works as a great thermal insulator.

    Sound, a sensation detected by the auditory nerves, is caused by vibrations, ACOUSTICAL PROPERTIES OF EPS CONSTRUCTION SYSTEMS STC rating. EPS has.If you want better performance out of it, you can combine it with other materials to increase the decoupling barrier capacity and become a better sound absorber.

    Still, before we can talk about the acoustic properties of EPS foam, Noise Reduction Coefficient Rating and Sound Transmission Class.Exterior Walls All exterior walls should be designed and built to meet or exceed the energy code and have an STC rating of not less thanForum Eps stc rating

    STC is a measure of transmission loss; the higher the STC rating, the more noise is reduced. Basics of Noise Control. When sound travels through.Sometimes, it comes in the shape of whatever product I bought, providing firm support, but I usually see it flooding the box in the form of loose peanuts.

    The higher the STC rating, the better the sound insulation performance of the construction. STC, AUDIBILITY OF LOUD SPEECH FROM OPPOSITE SIDE OF WALL.

    When combined with other materials, EPS performs as a decoupling barrier and improves better as a sound absorber.

    The same properties that make polystyrene an effective thermal insulator is the same reason why it is a good sound insulator.

    I do not think the Styrofoam will provide enough isolation.

    Expanded polystyrene EPS is a good thermal barrier, but by itself is a poor sound barrier.

    Besides polystyrene, you can find other soundproofing alternatives that are denser and heavier and has more mass, thereby performing better when handling low-frequency sounds.

    Some sound waves get trapped within the open cell format and absorbed.

    One cool thing about this mechanism is that it absorbs the sounds waves and converts them into heat!

    The resistance to airborne sound transmission is not only dependent upon the characteristics of the material placed in the path of the sound waves but also upon the method of construction of the system.
