The Sound Dampening Effects of STOPAQ
[FREE PDF DOWNLOAD BELOW]
According to the 2021 World Health Organization World Report on Hearing, exposure to loud sounds puts adults at risk not only of hearing loss, but other noise-induced health problems, such as insomnia and cardiovascular illnesses.
Further, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work estimates that 25–33% of the workforce in Europe is exposed to high-level noise at least a quarter of their working time.

Presserv can now present a documented, value-added benefit by choosing STOPAQ® as a corrosion prevention system – sound dampening. External testing at the Peutz Group Laboratory for Acoustics has proven that the STOPAQ® system has inbound properties for sound dampening.
After testing several different configurations, STOPAQ® standard corrosion protection showed almost a negative 10 decibel reduction at 8000Hz. Although this may not seem significant, every 3 dB represents a 50% reduction in sound.
