Lightweight and easy to install

Lays directly on top of existing floor

Nitron Industries is pleased to introduce Nitrolite™ Insulation for Flooring. Our Floor Insulation material is superior to other materials because it is both an Acoustic and Thermal insulator as well as being a moisture barrier. This is especially beneficial for multi-story homes and



buildings. Nitrolite™ is Anti-Fungal and Anti-Bacterial and will not grow any fungus or bacteria should it get wet. Our Floor Insulation is free of CFC’s, Chlorine, and Asbestos and is neutral to most chemical agents. It is Hypoallergenic in nature and odor free. Most importantly, it is inherently flame resistant and will not support a flame when exposed to fire. It also adds a pleasant cushion to hardwood and laminate floors as well as carpeting.

Add to these benefits the fact that Nitrolite™ is easy to install and is also easy on your pocket book.

Prices quoted are for the Nitron suggested retail price on the Nitrolite™ material. Please contact Nitron Industries or your local Dealer for exact prices.

For Hardwood and Laminate floors, use Nitrolite™ 1/8” thick Floor Insulation material. This will provide some sound insulation, as well as a moisture barrier, and provide a pleasant cushion to the floor when it is walked upon.

For Carpeting, use 1/4” up to 5/8” thick Floor Insulation depending on how much cushioning you want under the carpet and how much sound insulation you require.


Makes installation fast and easy

Cuts and shapes with a knife or scissors

Special Features:

• Excellent as an acoustic dampener and barrier. Noise control reductions of 50%-90% are   reported.
• Lightweight material is easy to move and manipulate.
• Cuts and shapes with a mat knife or scissors.
• Can be used in “floating floor” applications or with most common adhesives.
• Use of this environmentally friendly material will actually help to conserve our natural resources.
• Inherently flexible material makes installation fast, easy and economical.
• Suitable for application within the temperature range of -104°F to 230°F (-40°C to 107°C).
• Specially compounded to be self-extinguishing in nature. UL and FAA approved!
• Excellent ozone and ultraviolet resistance.
• Free of CFC, asbestos and chlorine, and does not cause skin allergy. The material is inherently hypoallergenic and will not promote bacterial or fungal growth.
• Thermal blister closed-cell structure forms an impermeable layer which is an excellent moisture and vapor barrier.
• Inert to most chemical agents, petroleum, and neutral to metal.
• Withstands tearing, rough handling and severe site conditions.
Nitrolite™ Acoustic Properties







Nitrolite™, as Acoustic Insulation has a closed cell structure that not only dampens sound, it absorbs it. The closed cell structure of our material does not allow for the transmission of sound from one side of the material to the other. Not only is Nitrolite™ a superior Acoustic Barrier but also it is self-extinguishing when exposed to flame and makes an extremely effective moisture barrier. Nitrolite™ Pipe Sleeves act as a vibration dampener, reducing or eliminating pipe vibration noise, as well as being an effective moisture barrier. Nitrolite™ is also an excellent Thermal Insulator with an effective operational range of -104°F to +221°F.
