In 1991, Acoustica® was the first company to introduce polyester sound and thermal insulating materials to Australia. This breakthrough with polyester materials revolutionised the industry by overcoming health and recycling issues associated with the products of the time. One of Acoustica’s standout products is QuietWave, a high-performance drywall noise barrier that delivers exceptional performance due to its patented constrained layer membrane.

Phillip Doneaux founder of Acoustica who was originally here on a 3-year visa to develop products for other companies. After developing products for them, he found a passion for acoustic products. Starting with modular systems for large presses he focused more on the entire industry rather than a niche. After getting sick of the noise from the large factories he researched into materials that stopped sound leading to all sorts of discoveries.
