Clients can avail from us a comprehensive range of plain softboards made of bagasse (sugar-cane) fibers. We groove or drill these boards for improving their sound absorbing capabilities, which make these ideal acoustic boards., which is soft, resilient, and light colored sheet material. These boards are usually 10 to 25 mm thick and finding its wide application in construction industry, our plain softboards are used for ceilings and wall linings, especially where reflected sound has to be reduced. We have gained expertise in manufacturing different kinds of Insulation Boards, which include soft board. These boards are perfect for ceiling, partitions, panels and floorings.
Composition and manufacture: For making these boards, bagasse is reduced to fibers that are then felted to form a continuous sheet. These sheets are passed through a drying oven after cutting to approximate size and trimmed to board sizes. By grooving insulating boards to part of their depth in various patterns, the improved acoustic properties can be obtained easily.
Thickness: 8.0 mm to 25.0 mm
- 1220 x 1220 mm
- 1220 x 2440 mm
- 610 x 1220 mm

Weight of boards varies according to brand. Typical weights (kg/m2) are:
- 2.5-2.7 for 9mm thickness,
- 3.2-3.7 for 12mm,
- 4.4-5.4 for 18mm,
- 6-7.5 for 25mm.

APPEARANCES: Surface texture: Varies from smooth to dimpled. Colour of most boards is various shades of cream and brown. Some boards are coated with a white primer for painting. Special boards available: Painted, paper plastic or textile faced. Flame-retardant treated types are available on request.
MIDLam Boards are hygroscopic in nature. Their dimensions change in response to changes in humidity. If these dimensional changes take place after the boards have been fixed they may cause bowing or gaps at joints. To avoid this the moisture content of board may first need to be adjusted to that of the surrounding air by conditioning. Conditioning is done by placing the boards in the room where they are to be fitted for 24 to 48 hours to attain the same moisture content.
