Indianapolis, IN–Auralex Acoustics Inc., an industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, has introduced the first green acoustical foam product on the market, Eco-Friendly StudioFoam.
StudioFoam brand products now include soy components, reducing petroleum-based chemical usage by up to 60 percent and lessening dependence on fossil fuels, including foreign crude oil. This greener formula helps reduce global warming emissions, yet retains the longevity and acoustical properties that Auralex is known for.
Auralex StudioFoam is manufactured without harmful Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which have been implicated in the depletion of the ozone layer. In making the conversion over to the new soy-based hybrid formula, these products now boast an improved performance and durability over conventional petroleum-based foams.
Green initiatives are no longer reserved for environmentalists, consumers as a whole are moving towards ecologically-friendly life-styles and products, said Dave Paxton, director of operations at Auralex Acoustics. Auralex is proud to be doing its part in conserving the environment and reducing global warming and our dependence on fossil fuels. Auralex will continue to create products that are beneficial to the audio industry as well as those that are conducive to our environment.
The new Eco-Friendly StudioFoam is available in the same color choices and cuts as the original. There is no increase in cost to either the dealer or consumer. The new offering meets and exceeds the quality of product and testing data (acoustical and fire) that the professional consumer demands.
