(0.12 in) steel plate, 1 mm (0.04 in) Marlon Marine VE 1400 and 2 mm (0.08 in) steel plate.

Apply the mineral wool/Slabs directly on the steel deck with staggered joints and butted tight. The first layer of steel plate (3 mm/0.12 in) must be applied directly on top of the mineral wool, then measure up the area to be applied and then mix the Marlon Marine VE 1400 and pour the mixed Marlon Marine VE 1400 visco-elastic product onto the first layer of steel plate by using a notched trowel (2 mm/0.08 in) to get a finish layer thickness of approx. 1 mm (0.04 in). Apply the second layer of steel plate (2 mm) directly into the wet Marlon Marine 1400 VE with staggered joints in relation to the first layer of steel plates. The two layers of steel plates must be mounted together with pop rivets or self-tapping screws.
