On a vessel, the most dominant transmission of undesirable sound or noise is through the structure of the vessel. Sika has various visco-elastic solutions that have a significant dampening effect on structure-borne noise.

Vertical Damping for the Shipbuilding Industry

Sikafloor® Marine Vertical Damping Solutions

Because noise and structural vibrations come not only from the floor but also from the walls, Sika offers solutions for the application of viscoelastic vertical materials. These solutions include Sikafloor® Marine PK-90 Steel Vertical, with a great capacity for damping, and the Sikafloor® Marine VES 515 Vertical Visco, faster application and without the need to use studbolts.
