What prints are offered with Monulite™?

Can Monulite™ be used on any surface substrate?
We have successfully tested Monulite™ on a variety of substrates. We are continuing to test new materials as they become available to us, but we are not limited to a specific build up. It is always recommended that customers conduct their own testing based on the combination of application and adhesive.
Can I use my own glue?
Perrone recommends using our exclusive Aerotak adhesive for the surface application of Monulite™. However, customers may still elect to use an alternative adhesive and perform the necessary certification testing required.
Can Monulite™ be used with a foam backing to have a more cushion feel?
The ideal recommended solution would be to use our proven nonwoven backing that makes up the Monulite™ system to create different thicknesses providing a “padded” result. We expect Monulite™ to perform as well with a foam backing, but due to the variabilities in types and thicknesses, this would need to be proven out with your specific material.
What are the advantages of Monulite™ over competitive products?
The greatest advantage of Monulite™ versus competitive products is that unlike hard surface solutions, Monulite™ has superior sound absorption characteristics. In most cases, Monulite™ can be easily cleaned and maintained in place. And, if Monulite™ should get damaged, it can be removed in panels and replaced or re-applied.
