K-13 is a total system of recycled natural fibers, chemical treatment, binding system and application method. The K-13 system begins with specially prepared cellulose fibers which are chemically treated. K-13 is applied by a network of licensed applicators. During application, the K-13 fibers are combined with a patented adhesive which allows for a strong, durable coating of desired thickness. K-13 is available in 7 standard colors and special color matching is available.
K-13 insulates by creating dead air spaces between and within its hollow fibers. The fibers are sprayed-in-place which fills in cracks, seams, and voids resulting in a coating that helps reduce air infiltration. Unlike prefabricated insulations, K-13 has no voids or compressed areas to reduce thermal efficiency. The result is a more effective in-place product with exceptionally low heat loss characteristics. The patented adhesive utilized in the installation of K-13 adheres to virtually all common construction materials including: metal, wood, concrete, urethane, styrofoam and glass. This unique adhesive provides unequaled strength allowing applications of 3/4 inch to over 5 inches without mechanical support. This capability provides R-values from 3 to over 19.
For areas such as indoor pools and ice arenas, K-13 aids in condensation control. The proper combination of K-13 and ventilation prevents condensation on metal, concrete and other surfaces. K-13 actually reduces ventilation requirements, saving in both the ventilation equipment investment and operating cost.
The resilient fibers of K-13 absorb sound energy instead of reflecting it, reducing reverberation time and making speech and music more intelligible. Excessive noise is reduced with the application of K-13 while greatly improving ambient sound quality in a wide variety of building projects including auditoriums, sports facilities, detention facilities, television and sound studios, convention centers and parking garages.
SonaSpray is a spray applied acoustical texture designed for a wide range of project types. SonaSpray provides an attractive, high performance solution to acoustical and lighting design objectives in both new construction and renovation projects. Typical installations includes : schools, churches, passenger terminals, libraries, cafeterias, offices, hotels and condominiums.
SonaSpray outperforms all other acoustic remediation products on the market today. Noise reductions of 65% to 90% are common results achieved by using this product. SonaSpray is also Class I fire rated, meeting all local and state code requirements.
The adhesive used to apply SonaSpray provides a strong, durable and resilient bond. This unique combination of properties provides remarkable durability. SonaSpray “fc” will resist impact and abrasion without cracking or spalling, typical to any cementitious or plaster based materials.
SonaKrete was developed to satisfy the need for a refined, pleasing finish that would be appropriate for both historical restoration and modern design trends. High-quality installations are assured because ICC has licensed only those contractors who have reputations for outstanding workmanship with other spray acoustic and thermal insulation systems.
Since SonaKrete is an 80% post-consumer cellulose product, it qualifies for LEED credits. SonaKrete resists impact and abrasion without cracking or spalling, typical of traditional plaster and cementitious-based materials.
SonaKrete is a premium acoustic finish product. Noise reduction of up to 75% can easily be achieved with a smooth plaster like appearance. SonaKrete is used primarily where drywall, plaster, brown coat, or any other smooth surface is present or will be installed.

Bonded Logic Natural Fiber Acoustic Insulation is made from post-industrial recycled cotton fibers. It is thermally bonded, contains no fiberglass, does not itch or cause skin irritation and offers superior acoustics. The fibers used to manufacture each acoustic sound batt offer superior noise reduction and sound absorption properties as well as effective thermal performance. The insulation is treated with a non-toxic solution that actively inhibits the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria and fungi. This same treatment also acts as an excellent fire retardant, giving Bonded Logic Natural Fiber Acoustic Pads a Class-A Fire Rating.
Premium Cotton product for over your lay-in ceiling for Sound & Thermal.
