The article presents the obtained physical, chemical and strength parameters of the hydrophobicmelamine foam. The advantages of this material being tested is very good thermal insulation, ability to absorb sounds (up to 90%), superhydrophobicity, very good fire resistance, low weight compared to the other materials of this type, high flexibility and moldability, compatibility with laminates increasing its strength and ease of assembly and shaping. In addition, the possibility of using a hydrophobic melamine foam as a function of thermal and acoustic insulation of concrete inter-floor ceilings was analyzed as a fire- proof and damp-proof insulation of passages for installation ducts, cable routes and culverts as well as an elegant and modern interior finish. Keywords: hydrophobic melamine foam; civil engineering; thermal insulation; acoustic insulation.
