Project Scope
Regupol America contracted Architectural Testing to conduct airborne sound transmission loss
and impact sound transmission tests. A summary of the results is listed in the Test Results
section, and the complete test data is included as attachments to this report. The client provided
the test specimen.
Test Methods
The acoustical tests were conducted in accordance with the following standards. The equipment
listed in the attachments meets the requirements of the following standards.
ASTM E 90-09, Standard Test Method for Laboratory Measurement of Airborne Sound
Transmission Loss of Building Partitions
ASTM E 413-10, Classification for Rating Sound Insulation
ASTM E 492-09, Standard Test Method for Laboratory Measurement of Impact Sound
Transmission Through Floor-Ceiling Assemblies Using the Tapping Machine
ASTM E 989-06 (2012), Classification for Determination of Impact Insulation Class (IIC)
ASTM E 2235-04 (2012) Standard Test Method for Determination of Decay Rates for Use in
Sound Insulation Test Methods
Test Procedure
All testing was conducted in the VT test chambers at Architectural Testing, Inc. located in
York, Pennsylvania. The microphones were calibrated before conducting the tests.
The airborne transmission loss test was conducted in accordance with the ASTM E 90 test
method using a single direction of measurement. Two background noise sound pressure level
and twenty sound absorption measurements were conducted at each of five microphone
positions. Four sound pressure level measurements were made simultaneously in both rooms, at
each of five microphone positions.

Test Procedure (Continued)
The impact sound transmission test was conducted in accordance with the ASTM E 492 test
method. Two background noise sound pressure level, two sound pressure level measurements
with the tapping machine operating at each position specified by ASTM E 492, and twenty
sound absorption measurements were conducted at each of five microphone positions.
The air temperature and relative humidity conditions were monitored and recorded during all
measurements.

Note: Grout was placed into the 6.35 mm joints between the ceramic tile and wiped clean. The
ceramic tile was placed with light pressure onto a bed of mortar on the underlayment. The mortar
was set using a 6.35 mm by 6.35 mm trowel. Both the grout and mortar were allowed to cure to
manufacturer's specifications.
