Absorber

Acoustic absorbers are materials that absorb solid-borne resp. air-borne sound. For the absorption of air-borne sound, open-cell foams or fibrous materials such as polyester non-wovens are used, while solid-borne sound absorption relies on absorber layers, e.g. heavy foils, that dampen the vibrations of a solid body.
