Abstract : Improved acoustic damping materials comprise interpenetrating polymer networks having a soft polymer component and a hard polymer component. The soft polymer component, constituting from 50 to 90 percent by weight of the material, is a polyurethane made by polymerization of a diisocyanate with a polyether glycol, and the hard polymer component is made by polymerization of bisphenol A diglycidyl ether, with boron trichloride amine complex as a curing agent.
