Vibration Dampening, Ruggedization and Sound Attenuation

Materials used for minimizing the effects of vibration and impact can also be used in sound attenuation applications. Vibration or impact can cause damage to equipment and structures over time, and reducing the amount of vibration extends the life of the components and equipment. Noise reduction in work environments can improve safety, worker productivity and health, and enhances the quality of audio equipment. By using sound attenuation materials, the amount of noise that is emitted by machinery, equipment, or vehicles is reduced.

Materials include:

  • Silicone
  • Polyurethane
  • Polyolefins
  • Rogers Poron®(urethane foam)
  • Rogers Bisco® (silicone foam)
  • Specialty laminates
  • VitonTM
  • Neoprene
  • NBR (natural Buna rubber)
  • EPDM
  • 3MTM VHBTM (very high bond adhesives)
  • Fluorosilicone foams and solids
  • Foams
  • Multi-layer assemblies that could include foams/rubbers with an adhesive on one side, both sides or zone coated in a specific area only
  • Additional materials can be provided to for your application
